The ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO Micro ATX AMD Motherboard is a very affordable motherboard with alot to show for its price range. This includes 4×240 pin memory slots allowing up to a maximum of 16GB of dual channel DDR3 memory. A built in Audio chipset allowing 8 channels of sound using VIA VT1708S. As well, this motherboard includes 6 x USB 2.0 onboard connectors, as well as 6 x USB 2.0, 1 x HDMI, 1 x optical, 6 rear panel ports. The expansion slots included are 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16, 1 x PCI Express x1, and 2 x PCI expansion slots. This motherboard has an integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU which is used in the basic build here.
All parts have a set of constituent products under “Budget Yielding Alternatives” that you may feel like considering if you want to go with something a little different (especially with computer cases), or better (as in a hard drive with more space, power supply with more wattage for future use, or higher quality RAM).
*Note: I try to include parts that will be of best quality within a given bracket, so if you notice a hardware part that may be of greater value within the same price bracket as any of these hardware parts do not hesitate to notify me. I’m always looking to improve, so any critic is welcomed.
