EVGA 01G-P3-1371-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) FPB EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

- Reliable

Cons: - Large-ish in size (relative to a small form factor setup)

Fractal Design Node 605 FD-CA-NODE-605-BL Black Aluminum/Steel ATX Media Center/HTPC case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Quiet (seemingly engineered for that purpose)
- Sleek exterior appearance
- Sturdy build and fairly well engineered
- Good directional air flow design
- One of few ATX HTPC case options

Cons: - Poor cable routing/management options, impedes airflow
- Drive mounting becomes tedious in cable management with all drive bays occupied

GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P (rev. 1.0) AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Great price versus performance
- A good upgrade board if you have built a system on a budget
- SATA and USB ports make it a worth while entry level home server
- Heat managed well (replaced northbridge heat sink with an all copper alternative)
- Raid tools are simple to set use

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This board is being used in an overkill HTPC setup (front and back end)/NAS/game server and has run flawlessly for nearly a year straight. After about 8 months of reliable usage, a duplicate board was used in a medium grade gaming computer to great success.
