Pros: Cheap price, but feels solid, runs stable.
Cons: Not the highest end card out there, but knew that when I got it.
Other Thoughts: I used this in my first ever budget build, and all I can say is wow, it runs great! Now, I use a 26 inch LCD TV as a monitor, granted, and it only runs at 1360 x 768 resolution, but I'm happy with it. Using the GForce experience, it runs Skyrim on Very high flawlessly, with no stuttering or frame drop, as well as Shogun 2 seamlessly. I paired this with a little G860 CPU, thinking after awhile I would upgrade to a bigger card and a quad core, but honestly can't find a valid reason to do so after over 6 months of use. Recommeneded it to my cousin for his 1st build, and he's nothing but happy with it as well. If you are looking for a very decent , inexpensive card for a budget gaming build, look no further.
My spec are:
G860 3.0Ghz CPU
8 G. G-Skill Sniper RAM
ASRock H77M mATX motherboard
Corsair CXM 500 PSU
Corsair 300R Case
Pros: Solid board, nice features for a mATX, stable, UEFI Bios
Cons: Putting the CPU in place takes some effort on the arm, kinda scary for a first time builder like me. Comes with crapware, but you don't have to install it.
Other Thoughts: Used this in my first ever build. Wanted a cheap budget system that would play all the games I wanted. This board has some very nice features. No issues in over 6 months of solid use. Liked it so much, just ordered a second one for a build for my kids to do school work and light gaming on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 3.0 Ghz, fast, cool, reliable, it's Intel, what do you expect?
Cons: Doesn't pay my taxes for me.
Other Thoughts: Used this in my first ever budget build. Didn't want to spend too much since I was afraid I'd mess something up, but I have no regrets about selecting this little beast. It has run everything I have thrown at it flawlessly, and stays cool doing it. I game mainly, but nothing too harsh. Skyrim, Shogun 2, both run on High with no hiccups at all. Told myself when I first got this I would upgrade to a quad soon, but honestly right now can't see any reason to. Nothing but happy with it.READ FULL REVIEW
