GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive, lots of features, worked great first time started, no hassles.

Cons: I wish the thing had more USB connectors and an IDE port. Can't really complain since it is clearly mentioned on the specs though. Also the metal plate where the mobo connectors stick out on the back of the PC looks kind of cheap. I'm really reaching to find cons if you haven't noticed.

Other Thoughts: I have never been disappointed by Gigabyte brand motherboards. They are always excellent quality and full of features without breaking the bank.

Galaxy 56NGH6HS4IVZ GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB  Battlefield 3 Edition 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Not only one of the most inexpensive choices but it also comes with a redeemable code for Battlefield 3. Great value!

Cons: The card looks pretty cool in the description but in person the plastic cover around the heatsink feels really cheap and flimsy. Either put a decent cover on it or don't put one on at all IMHO. This cover also got in the way of my plastic case clamps that assist in holding the card in place. Not a huge issue and you should always screw it in as well anyways but it was kind of annoying. Also the fans on this card are mounted very close to said flimsy plastic cover and I am kind of worried that if the plastic warps or something it could stop them from spinning.

Other Thoughts: First time going with a Galaxy brand card for a build and I'm sure the card is great but the flimsy plastic cover was definitely a turn-off. If you are in the market for a 560ti card and don't want/need a copy of BF3 I'd recommend going with a different brand that protects their cards with a better cover.

GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Has a lot of features and was a good price as well. Has plenty of USB and SATA ports and the board is somewhat aesthetically pleasing. Booted up flawlessly the first time.

Cons: No IDE! Ended up having to take a trip to the local big box store to get a new SATA optical drive. 5 stores later I finally found one... I cant believe hardly anyone carries internal optical drives anymore. Sign of the times I guess....

Won't take an egg away from the rating though since it was an oversight on my part.

Also make sure you setup the bios properly... mine was initially set to onboard graphics which negated my 570 until I found the proper options in BIOS to set it straight.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has so far never let me down with their motherboards. If you want loads of features without a hefty price tag look to Gigabyte to fulfill your needs.
