This review is from: ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Pros: Good not great sound.Easy install.Kudos for included power cable adapter.
Cons: As people before me have noted the drivers can be a little tricky.I first went to support site and downloaded the driver.After install the sub woofer for my- Z5300`s was not playing.Uninstalled driver and used included disc for Windows 7 64 bit and it works just fine.Need to find a front audio panel to use with my Dell Optiplex 780 MT.Not much of an upgrade from my Xonar DG.Some sound cards have inputs colored to make cable hookups easier.
Other Thoughts: Luke warm on recommending card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Light,quiet and small form factor.Smooth tray operation.Fantastic deal at $14.99 with free shipping.Needed for Windows 7 Ultra install on MSI 990FX-GD80 motherboard.DVD playback excellent.Paid $400.00 for My first HP DC Burner back in the day.
Cons: OEM with no software or sata cable.Not really a con for this price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Worked for 6 months.
Cons: First board worked for 6 months then RMA`d.Second board wouldn`t post.MSI paid no attention to my concerns and the third board shipped came loaded with nicotine stink and stain all over the board.Sent in pristine board and got back much less.I don`t smoke but I am steaming after this.Replaced wirh ASUS board that works great.
Other Thoughts: Used new Cooler Master 750 watt power supply.New AMD FX 6300 Vishera CPU.8GB New Gskill Memory.After wasting $32.00 in return shipping this is the most I have paid for a motherboard.What a waste!READ FULL REVIEW
