GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -inexpensive
- USB ports
-compatible with AMD FX processors
- USB ports

Cons: -first board I received was DOA.
-bios took some figuring out, but looks and functions nicely.

Other Thoughts: Overall, as long as it works, it's solid. It hasn't failed me since I got the RMA replacement. It's a good board.

AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 100W Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D AD660KWOHLBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -high speed
-quad core
-no need for GPU as long as you're not playing the latest games at the highest settings
-AWESOME for a business setup

Cons: -If you pair this with an MSI motherboard and want to run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, you WILL have to use a workaround in linux, it's something to do with ubuntu's graphics drivers. There's more information on the interweaving about it. It is a functional workaround that doesn't seem to affect performance on a business machine.
-Stock cooler sucks, but that's expected. If you plan on really pushing this APU, get an aftermarket air-cooler if you don't want to burn this thing up. It idles around 50C in a microatx with fans blowing directly onto it.

Other Thoughts: great low-cost high-performance APU solution for business or low-performance gaming situations. I doubt playing CoD on medium settings would run into any issues as long as you have an aftermarket heatsink/fan combo.

Acer S231HLBbid Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks nice, both screen and bezel
matte screen, less glare
decent stands for the price
Good gaming performance
got two at a killer price
generally well-functioning

Cons: colors don't match with identical DVI connections and settings. It's barely noticeable unless you have white pages on both screens, but then it's super obvious. this is the only reason I deducted an egg but at $129 each I am not going to act like I expected total perfection.

Other Thoughts: if you get these for less than 150, you're getting a good value. Wait till they're on sale.
