GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of features for the price. The chip set allows me to use Win XP along Win 8.1 duel boot. Using rev 4.1. No problems as of yet

Cons: Upon reading the reviews it's usually hit or miss with Gigabyte. Time will tell.

Other Thoughts: Had board professionally installed along with AMD 9570 CPU, 8 gigs memory (Ripjaws), Lit-tech CPU cooler.

SAMSUNG S24D300H Black 24
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Newer games look super sharp detailed. No screen artifacts no dead pixels. Text look quite clear and a fair price.

Cons: I wish the monitor's controls were lighted so I adjust with out turning on room light. Darker scenes in games I see a faint lightness in the blacks probably from the LED.

Other Thoughts: using a VGA connector image still looks good.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems pretty stable right now. Plays nice with Amd 8350 CPU right now. No BSOD as of yet.

Cons: Has developed a hiccup with the usb switch. When using a USB switch paired with a USB hub, sometimes it won't initialize with OS. I will have to switch back and forth in order for it to see the the hub.

Other Thoughts: Using 2 computers with KVM switch and a USB switch paired with a USB hub. Also using a CPU water cooled system and no overclocking of any of the components.
