GIGABYTE GV-N630-1GI GeForce GT 630 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I am not using this for games, but for movies and internet surfing on a 37" LED (LG) television using the HDMI connection. Have not had any problems viewing movies or lag times. Had to use the Nvidia menu to get the size right for the screen which was very easy...just drag the size into place using the mouse.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At around $60 you cannot go wrong.

APEVIA X-QPACK-BL/420 Black/Blue Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Computer Case 420W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice looking case. Good fit and finish. Case and power supply fans run quiet. All standard size computer components fit.

Cons: I don't remember if the instructions for the case indicate that there is a switch on the temperature display to toggle between °C and °F. Default is °C. I sent an email to the factory and received a prompt reply about the switch. When I upgrade the DVD player I will make the switch.

The front panel wires are a little short and the motherboard must be at least half way in before they can be connected. Tight fit but I managed even with my big paws.

Other Thoughts: I put this together with an FX-4100 Zambezi cpu on a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P with 8gb of G.Skill, and a GIGABYTE GV-N630-1GI GeForce GT 630 video card and Windows 8. I am using a wireless keyboard, mouse, and wi-fi strictly for television entertainment (37" LED). The video card had to be set to custom specs but it works flawlessly.

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ555WFGMBOX Desktop Processor - C3 Revision
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price vs. performance. Stock fan is doing its job.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Got lucky and unlocked the other two cores using a Biostar TA785GE 128M.
