Pros: If you listen to reviews from people like Horatiu R. (2 reviews before me), then you should really get out of building custom pc on your own. I mean seriously? You will install a 1155 socket cpu on a 1150 motherboard and then complain about bent pins? What does Gigabyte have to do with this?

Cons: Ok back to product review. Only negative is this board is not full ATX board. The width is little bit smaller. I am not sure why Gigabyte would cut corners here. I mean how much money are you saving seriously?

Antec TruePower Classic series TP-650C 650W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply

Pros: Bought it in Black Friday for $60. At this price, it was a great deal for 80 plus gold psu. Great output at 12V+ rail (separate rails for your graphics card which is just what you need). No noise at all. I have GTX 770 and AMD FX 8320

Cons: None so far. Modular would have nice. But I have great casing with good cable management. It might be an issue for those with small cases.

Other Thoughts: If you find this psu in deal, grab it.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Future proof. Games will now use more cores and going with AMD is the way to go, especially if you are on a budget like me. I am very happy with the purchase.

Cons: Runs a little hot but nothing big deal in a good case. I get 35 during gaming.

Other Thoughts: Many people are talking about the stock fan. The stock fan is not good enough. It is too small. I suggest you go for an aftermarket cooler.

Another big culprit I found in many AMD motherboards is the smart fan control. By default it is disabled in many cases and it forces the fan to run at higher speed than it is required. I dont know but after enabling it in BIOS with target temperature of 50 (even the BIOS records wrong temperature for cpu if I am not mistaken), i noticed the fan runs way cooler now. I suggest everyone to look at this setting whoever has issues with noisy fan.
