Pros: This card has a solid design, it performs well in all the games I've tested including Tomb Raider (reboot), Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed 4, and Skyrim. The cooling system seems to function quite well, 40-45C consistently in AC4 and seems to make almost no noise. Also, it came with BF4 for free.. which is a 60$ game.
Cons: I have yet to find any issue with this card.
Other Thoughts: The only issue I had with this card was the length, I've had to deal with double-din's before but this one seems to be a bit longer than some. I believe this has to do with the cooling system but it just barely fit in my case, my 3 hard-drive's SATA cables are almost touching the end. I was going to mention this in the "Con" section but I don't really consider it one unless you have very limited space in your case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I love Asus motherboards, and this one is no exception. These support everything I could possibly want to do and even things I wouldn't. These suckers are not without options, 6 USB ports in the back and support for 4 more via internal connections. An array of video and audio options if you want to use the onboard stuff. 6 SATA connections! The bios comes with more options than you can shake a stick at and for the price. On top of all that, the board itself is quite stylish and since I have mine installed into an acrylic case, that matters to me. I am using an AMD Phenom II x2 550 Black Ed. 80w processor in both boards I've used this year, and they all work flawlessly.
Other Thoughts: I have no other thoughts, paired with the proper ram and processor these boards run like a dream.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love these processors, I've purchased 2 this past year, one for myself, and one for a friend. I installed both into "ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO" motherboards (Which I also recommend). If you are looking for fast dual-core processors and don't want to hand over your entire wallet, I highly recommend them.
Other Thoughts: Was hoping I could managed to unlock a core or 2 on these but couldn't manage to do so. :PREAD FULL REVIEW
