The motherboard is OK for a budget build. No usb 3.0, no sata III 6gb/s hurt it...

You can get this motherboard that has the same features for $33:

Then, you could get the same processor for $50, and spend the extra $30 towards bettering other components of your build. Or you could get this pentium G630 for $66 which will give better performance over the celeron 530, and you'd still be saving $10.

@bmason3604: That's a pretty sweet deal for an entry level Intel build. I like the OP's Asus board (had very good luck with them) but Celeron is kind of a joke.
