This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: The board has worked well for over 5 years now with no housekeeping. I have used everything from an 8600 video card to 8800gtxxx to 5770 ati and it doesn't care, I am on my third power supply, the voltage out in the country is pretty spikey even though I do use a couple of surge limiters ahead of it.
Cons: none that come to mind.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works, quiet, tollerant of incoming ac issues we are rural and at the end of the road, this power supply has taken a terrific beating from lightning strikes and power spikes enough to fry one apc and three surge protectors.
Cons: the company discontinued this model.... too bad.
Other Thoughts: Am not shy concerning Rosewill power supplies now and probably will purchase another with new build this summer. This one has lasted thru two rebuilds 24-7 operation and lots of storms. not too bad for a 3+ year old power supply.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders
Pros: I have played with both the beta and the RC 7100 and this is pretty close to Heaven as far as an operating system is concerned. don't be afraid to get the OEM instead of the full version as there is no differance. If you have to reload because of a new hard drive or whatever no problem you just have to talk to aperson and tell them the reason that you need a new key.
This OS loaded every peripheral such as my 8 year old Brother MVC 6800 and old games work excellently re- Arx Fatalis and Far cry as well as newer games such as Far Cry 2. I love this OS and you will too.
Cons: It wasn't free.
Other Thoughts: I was leary of paying for a 64 bit OEM but now that I did I am very pleased with the purchase. Like most of you I am constantly rebuilding and upgrading. for instance this computer began life as a K62 500 4.3 g asus board but since then it has evolved at least 4 times and we are just getting started. Next purchase is an 890 GX board to open up the 555 processor and possibly an ssd as a boot drive.READ FULL REVIEW
