This review is from: ASRock 960GC-GS FX AM3+/AM3/AM2+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I did not want to submit a review till I have use this motherboard for a month or two. Unit has been running non stop with no issues. A good way to use up old hardware on my bench. System will run normal office programs without a problem.
Cons: No USB 3.0
Other Thoughts: For $60.00 you can not go wrong with this motherboard. As long as you have old hardware not being used this is a cheap way to put a system together.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Fits a very wide range of older AMD cpus. One of the last boards available unless you want to hunt for old stock. On board video is acceptable for office work. System has been running for 6 weeks without a problem. Motherboard will run with a 20 pin power supply if you do not have a 24 pin unit in stock.
Cons: Has USB 2.0 instead of of USB 3.0. Price is a little high for this older technology. If the price drops 15 or 20 dollars I will get another one to use up the extra parts I tend to have on my work bench.
Other Thoughts: This is my fourth Asrock motherboard. I had no problems with any of them. They are good boards for basic computer needs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech 2 Port PCI Express SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Adapter Model PEXUSB3S2
Pros: Much faster than usb 2. I have a Asrock K10N78m mother board with 4 gigs of ram running Windows 7 32 bit. Big difference when sending files to a external hard drive. A backup takes much less time. Good card for the price.
Cons: The software did not work with my system. I went to StarTech's website and downloaded the latest version and my system would not recognize the card.Finally went to the chipset maker NEC and downloaded a older version and the card now works. Just a heads up if any one else has this problem with installation.READ FULL REVIEW
