AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low Power APU perfect for an HTPC Build, runs XBMC and various other programs on windows 7 flawlessly. I was surprised to find i was even able to play a number of games on it when my main rig was down (granted, i did transfer over my video card at the time.)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're building an HTPC or workstation and don't intend to play games, this has plenty of power to get the job done without breaking the bank. I Bought it about two years ago, absolutely worth it.

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: strong, reliable, and built to last. Cords are long enough to do whatever you need with them.

Cons: not modular, and with long cords, cable management can be a bit of a hassle

Other Thoughts: overall, this thing has survived constant 24/7 operation in buildings with poor wiring for nearly 5 years. It's outlived the original motherboard and has yet to so much as hiccup. I paid 140 for it and as far as i'm concerned, it's been worth every penny. If you're thinking about it and you really don't care if your PSU is modular or not, get this one. It's a winner.

Rosewill RNX-N150PCe - Wireless N150 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b / 11g / 11n, (1T1R), Up to 150 Mbps Data Rates, PCIe 2.0 Interface, WPS Supported
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works, fairly cheap(Caught it on sale), PCIE

Cons: Provided drivers are trash for windows 7. Latest drivers on manufacturer's website also yield poor performance compared to the $3 no-name usb adapter i have.

Other Thoughts: as noted, the provided drivers and latest drivers on the are pretty bad. Using generic Atheros drivers for the AR9485 chipset yields substantially better transfer speeds on windows 7 than the manufacturer provided drivers.
