This review is from: ECS A960M-MV(1.0A) AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Shipped with the latest Bios from ECS and would be able to handle FX-8350 out of the box.
I was able to do some mild overclocking with this board.
Cons: none so far.
Other Thoughts: I teamed this with an FX-4130 also from Newegg for a cheap gaming rig and it has handled everything so far just perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: AMD FX-4130 Zambezi Quad-Core 3.8GHz Socket AM3+ Desktop Processor FD4130FRGUBOX
Pros: A Decent stock cooler for minor overclocking.
A cheap Quad-Core.
I purchase on sale for $89
Performance I believe is close to being on par for competing low end processors.
Feels smooth in windows and games.
Cons: Not as efficient as a Vishera-Core processor
Not as good power wise as competing Intel chips
Other Thoughts: I purchased the FX-4130 for a cheap gaming rig, paired with a used Geforce GTX 660 and I am not dissapointed. Sure this isn't the fastest processor out there but for $89 I am more then happy. I was able to overclock this stable to 4.3 ghz on the stock cooler, and that is paired with a cheap ECS motherboard. Performance is about what I expected and definitely beats my old Core 2 Duo rig.READ FULL REVIEW
