Hmmm, micro ATX I was looking at an Asus motherboard with that form facter recently.

If your looking for a rating, I'll say a 7 out of 10 for this motherboard.

16 Gb of memory supported= Fantasic

Integrated HDMI/DVI interface with HDCP Supporting all HD formats including720P,1080i, 1080P. ( Required processors with Intel HD Graphics)= This I like!

Motherboard support:

Parts 3 years limited
Labor 2 years limited

Not bad support, but I do question the limited part.

For the price plus no shipping and handling fees, I'd say it's worth the price. :thumbsup:

I would go for a Full ATX Case and a Full ATX Motherboard you usually get more options and less integration.

I would at least go for a full ATX motherboard as they are more spread out and have more options, assuming, of course, your case can hold an ATX motherboard. That's a reasonable budget Intel board. If this is going to be used as a standard home PC, it will offer a good experience.
