Seems alright to me... I'd look at reviews and trust anything from Hexus or tom's hardware.

I've been told that Gigabyte or Asus are better to get, although I don't know how true that is.

Excellent. I will have a little look at some reviews then. Just noticed you have a HTC desire with a cm 10.1 rom on there? Is that jelly bean? And also does it run ok?

GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

I found this its a little more expensive but not by much, and you get a lot more from it.

It supports AM3+
Its got USB 3 in the back, and also has the connections for an additional external source for USB 3
It has HDVI, HDMI, as well has VGA for video output since VGA is getting out dated
And it has three expansion slots: PCI Express x16, PCI Express x1, and PCI

ASRock is a good solid motherboard though I have on in my rig and I love it other than the wacky configuration of the expansion slots.

The motherboard you have found is good, but it is getting dated with not having USB 3, and an additional video output other than VGA.

Just my input you can take it as lightly as you want

Yeah - Desire HD. Yeah, 4.2.1. It runs ok, I get a bit of lag and random restarts but that's more to do with my device...
