Rosewill R519-BK Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price, PSU, Several expansion bays, CPU "funnel" to move heat

Cons: Front USB ports upside down, No cord management, Looks cheap

Other Thoughts: For the price, this case/psu combo is fine. It's nothing impressive, but it is everything it's advertised to be.

BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs You get (less than) what you pay for. 07/22/2013

This review is from: BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: + Inexpensive
+ Compact
+ Well-laid out
+ Onboard sound is fine
+ Onboard graphics are okay

The motherboard's biggest highlight, for me, was its design given the compact size. It seems as though it would fit most ATX cases without having any major collision issues (with PSU or video card heatsinks)

Cons: - BIOS programming
- Booting issues
- RAM supported
- Fan power connectors
- Cord management

I have had horrible issues with mine. A friend who purchased the same motherboard had fewer issues, but still decided to upgrade to another type (I think Gigabyte, but not positive).

The BIOS has terrible spelling errors and programming faults left and right. The most recent BIOS update (which is over 2 years ago) still didn't fix them.

I cannot reboot my PC. In order to do a restart, I have to do a complete shut down, flip the PSU switch, and then start it up again. Otherwise, it hangs post-bios. I switched out the motherboard, and lo and behold, the issue disappeared.

I would have liked to see a second case fan port as well, as well as the ability to install 16 GB of RAM, but those were limitations I knew of when making the purchase.

Other Thoughts: If you can afford to shell out another $10-20 for anything in your PC build, make it a different motherboard. I regret going with this one--the only reason I did was because it was part of a Shell-Shocker combo deal at the time of purchase.

Don't buy this motherboard.

This review is from: BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard does the basics relatively well. Overall, the MoBo works fine, and doesn't fail at anything it claims to be able to do.

Cons: No bells and whistles. The onboard video is certainly not the best that you could get for an AM3+ MoBo.

I've also had a few issues with booting. Usually, booting up takes 2 tries. I've also still had problems with booting while USB devices (and even hubs) are connected...even when USB boot is off.

In addition, the BIOS is just as awful as everyone else has said before me. There are spelling errors, and I believe the BIOS bugginess is what's causing the boot issues.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this motherboard is okay. In retrospect, I would've gone with a different one. While I don't think that this motherboard should be able to do any more than it does, I think I just wasn't aware of what limitations would come with a $50 motherboard.

Again...you get what you pay for.
