Pros: I got this mb as part of an asus build bundle. it meets all my expectations and is runs windows 8, no problems.
this thing works great with my AMD FX4100 processor, and my geforce gtx650ti 1gb vid card.
It has enough memory slots (4) as well
Cons: none so far.
Other Thoughts: If you are on a budget, this is mb is a good choice.
I see a lot of reviews about DOA and other issues, but I did not encounter any other those. I just suggest that if any issues arise, that you check the drivers to make sure they are up to date. the AI suite software is supposed to auto check for updates, but doesn't work that well.
Pros: For the price, this thing is great! I got this with an asus pc bundle and works awesome with my mb.
gpu tweak is a great tool for tweaking this card.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: this card does pretty well. I mostly use it for dual monitors and autodesk software (revit, navisworks, etc.) and it handles all of those pretty well.
If you plan on gaming a lot, I might suggest a 2gb model, but I'm not going to knock an egg for that.
Just remember to make sure are of your drivers are updated b/c win8 is picky!
Pros: has enough cables to satisfy all of your components
Provides plenty of wattage for everything
Cons: This thing is an energy hog! after my first month of using my new pc (an asus build) my power bill went up $20. This thing came in a bundle, or else I would have chosen a gold or platinum rated psu.
I will be buying a new psu that will save me some money on my power bill
Other Thoughts: If you can choose, pick something that is more efficient.
Also, this thing would be nicer if it was modular
