The Foxconn H55MX-S is a hard one to call. On the one hand there are no tools to tweak the system. You are stuck with what you get. As you cannot dictate the amount of RAM you are allocating to the GPU, your graphical options are also limited. On the other hand, the board was able to perform normal computing tasks very easily.
This leads to a situation where we have to look at the usage model to determine if the Foxconn H55MX-S is worth the time and effort. At $80 from NewEgg.com it is certainly an inexpensive motherboard and one that fits into the usage model of entry level/business. In that category the Foxconn H55MX-S does very well.
You are not going to game with it and you certainly are not going to do any rendering (which leaves out some photo editing abilities like rendering frames etc.), but if what you are looking for is an inexpensive motherboard for simple computing (Internet, email, Office etc) then this is a good choice. If you are looking for higher-level tasks, you should look elsewhere.
