Other Thoughts: None

MSI GeForce GTX 960 DirectX 12 GTX 960 GAMING 2G 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card

Pros: it looks wonderful and so far seems to be running cool

Cons: This may not bother everyone but it messedme up a little. The card has 3 display ports, 1 DVI and an HDMI. the monitors I use is a seiki 39 inch LCD TV and an older samsung 22 inch monitor. plugging into the the Seiki through HDMI looked horible I blame the TV not the card. Which made me have to use a DVI to VGP adater to the tv and that looked great. THen I had to order a display port to DVI adapter for the other monitor to make things work right. All of these cons go against my older equipment and not the card itself.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this for pretty lights you might be disappointed. It has one light on it and that's it. this did not bother me since where my case sits no one would see it anyway.

MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 and SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Run great with no problems so far. Looks even better. ample amount of SATA ports and USB ports and headers. I aslo got the MSI 960 GTX card which matches the board perfectly.

Cons: Had a small problem installing the Killer network card driver. Had to go to the device manager uninstall it then reinstall it then it detected. THE MSI software that comes with the board will not install until you have .net framework installed. there is a nice "badge" that is a heat sink on the board but it will get covered up when you install the a Video card.

Other Thoughts: If you are installing windows 7 to this board with a USB stick. IT might be tricky. after you loads up the first time it loses the drivers for the USB and no longer sees it. My solution was to keep changing the USB port that the stick was in till it was discovered again. this is not a problem with the board its a well known win 7 bug
