This review is from: ASUS B85M-G LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I was skeptical getting a board other than a z87, but this time around I was on a tight budget. I was not disappointed with this board. It works phenomenally. The UEFI bios is very good. I mostly use this motherboard to game and watch movies. The micro atx form factor paired with a small case can make this computer great for taking over to a buddies house and gaming. I'm looking in to a few cases because at the moment I got this motherboard in my old full tower 400r which now has a lot of vacant space.
Cons: The only thing I can think about (mainly my fault) was how the motherboard booted with the intel hd igpu graphics and I had to search a little bit in the bios to use my discrete card.
And the Asus Q connector wasnt included, but for this price I wasn't expecting it.
Other Thoughts: Great budget motherboard if you are willing to sacrafice a few features. ASUS really gives you good quality on all their products wether they are ROG, Sabertooth or budget mainstream. Impressive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For all those people who want a processor that can handle all the games at a good price, this one is for you. The 4430 is $60 cheaper than its 4670k counterpart and suffers only about a 10% decrease in most applications. Better Bang for your buck. Runs cool and impressed me so much. Great for anybody who doesn't want to go "all in" for the top of the line i5 (4670k) and is willing to shell out a bit more cash over the i3.
Cons: The only compromise is no over clocking. To some this may be a huge downfall, but for me its not that big of a deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great quality, arrived at my doorstep quickly, delivers great power to all my components, and great value,
Cons: Slight whining sound when at load but I play with headphones and its impossible to hear unless I'm focusing really hard to hear it.
Other Thoughts: Had to upgrade from my 520w seasonic because I got the Gtx 770 which requires 600w minimum.READ FULL REVIEW
