Pros

Integrated ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics is DirectX 10 compatible and one of the most powerful onboard graphics - perfect for light gaming and 2D/3D rendering without the cost/heat/power usage of a dedicated card

4 agree

Multiple display connectors: DVI-D, VGA and HDMI (with audio).

3 agree

inexpensive for such a full featured board

3 agree

The integrated graphics solution is powerful enough for driving a 1920x1200 flat panel and has hardware decoding support for both H.264 and VC-1 HD video formats.

2 agree

Up to 16 GB RAM supported (4x 4GB modules)

2 agree

support for CrossFireX for multiple video card gaming systems

2 agree

Cons

AMD 780 Northbridge only has a heatsink and runs very hot

3 agree

DVI-D and HDMI outputs cannot be used simultaneously (either DVI-D or HDMI can be used simultaneously with VGA though)

1 agrees

Integrated Radeon HD3200 graphics uses system RAM (by default 256MB) instead of having its own dedicated memory. There is a similar model, GA-MA790GP-DS4H, with Radeon HD3300 graphics and built-in 128MB DDR3 1333MHz SidePort memory, but it is much more expensive.
