in my experience, Biostar boards havent always been the best performing boards, nor steller overclockers, but they DO last forever. I built my brother a computer with a biostar board some 8 years ago, and it is STILL running strong, so as far as their quality is concerned, no complaints.
and hey, its not a modern board either, and the price is right. As long as your not expecting it to play Crysis on full graphics, then I say its worth a cheap case from motherboard, would make a good desktop computer or a great media center. you can get I/O shields off of ebay cheap. I have a older board with DDR2 and AMD x2 6000+ processor on a gigabyte board that I use just for that, I have it in my bathroom hooked up to a 26 inch TV by my soaker tub, I use it to watch netflix and all my R rated movies that I dont wany my kids to see lol.
Price is right, $20 case and you got yourself a decent computer there. I cant see where you can go wrong there. If you dont have a windows license running around you can easily turn it into a linux box, its full of possibilities. And if by some odd chance it does up and die in 2 months, your not out much, and if it were me, I would buy a mid range (40-50 dollar range) mid-atx case, that way you have a decent case for a new build for if and when it does hit the sack (or you get tired of it) and save yourself money down the road.
