MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap, good BIOS, does what I need it too. Had no issues booting from a USB drive to install windows.

Cons: PCI-E 1x slot is too close to the PCI-E 16x slot. Your GPU probably needs to be a true single slot to accommodate a sound card or internal wireless adapter.

Other Thoughts: If you aren't going to use more than 2 SSD's and 2 HDDs, more than 2 sticks of ram, or overclock, then this is a great motherboard.

EVGA 500 B 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 3 Year Warranty 100-B1-0500-KR Power Supply Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Incredibly quiet, incredibly cool, single 12vrail, cheap, 3 yr warranty.

Cons: Cables are on the short side.

Other Thoughts: Guts are made by HEC. Component quality is good, but not excellent. Crossload less than desirable, but in practicality this doesn't matter a whole lot.

Also, I wish newegg would stop pooling reviews with other products what the hell is that?

HIS H777FN1G Radeon HD 7770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very quiet, great price/performance. 60+ fps typical in BF3 on all low with 2xMSAA and 4xAF @ 1600/900 with a G3220. 80+ fps with AA and AF off. It looks very minimalistic, but very clean as well. Good for competitive gamers on budget who turn down settings anyway. Very very good for source games.

Cons: Cooler was fatter than I thought, so I blocks my PCI-E 1x slot on my mATX motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Either get this or a 7950. Everything inbetween is a needless compromise. Either max out your games, or don't. And remember, framerate is king.
