ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs DOA; RMA; DOA again.. 04/16/2014

This review is from: ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Flexible socket type, good bang for buck.

Cons: DOA. Ran through several bread board tests, all parts confirmed good, but board wouldn't post. RMA, got the replacement board, it's also DOA, won't post. Wish I would've written down the SN before RMA, as it's possible (I feel likely) that they just repackaged the mobo and sent the same one back, but regardless, two DOA boards. I'll never buy ASRock again.

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 240 DirectX 10.1 GV-N240D5-512I 512MB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pretty low price, HDMI, DVI, and VGA ports, not too large, runs quiet and cool.

Cons: None considering the price

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my 9500GT on my HTPC. Not sure how well the HDMI works because I use DVI (same resolution, cheaper cable). Running W7 64-bit and have noticed that my Blu-Rays look a little more crisp and smooth and Aero is more responsive as well. I don't play games on PC, so I can't comment on that aspect of this card, but this card is prefect for an HTPC and it won't break the bank.

Intel Celeron E3300 Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.5 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E3300 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap for an Intel Dual-Core of any kind

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I have this in a Gigabyte mobo with Gskill Sniper DDR3 and overclocked this little guy up to 3.3GHz; that's right, 3.3. It's been running extremely stable and the temps are running up to mid 30'C under pretty heavy load, high teens low 20s under normal use. This thing's running so smooth even at this high of an overclock that I can hardly hear the CPU fan running. Used PCWiz to benchmark and monitor with no problems what so ever yet. Highly recommend this CPU if you're looking for a lotta bang for your buck!
