Pros: Very affordable
1080p gaming is quite fun on this card, and it handles just about everything. I haven't tried to throw Crysis 3 at it, and I probably won't because I don't play that game.
Cons: Isn't a 770?
Other Thoughts: It was a great buy, especially considering that I upgraded from a gtx 435M.
Battlefield 4 runs like butter with everything maxed out. ARMA III runs well, you may need to turn down some of the crazy post processing it has, but it still looks fantastic.
Great price, great buy, no complaints.
Very slim design, which I'm quite happy with.
Cons: No speakers? Who uses the built in speakers anyway?
Other Thoughts: Why are the ratings so low for this monitor? Sounds like some people don't understand what they are buying before they buy it. I got this monitor for about 110 bucks, and I saw the same monitor in Best Buy for about 129. If you want a monitor that can do a backflip and then connect you to the internet whilst cooking you breakfast, go spend more money elsewhere.
This monitor has been fantastic for me. The colors are great, I'm 1080p gaming like a pro, and I wouldn't be able to complain about it if I tried. Great buy, check it out in persona t best buy.
This review is from: ECS A990FXM-A AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works out of the box with FX 8320 and I'm guessing 8350's
Bios is easy to navigate
What feels like a thousand USB 2's, and they throw in USB 3 just to be kind to you.
Comes with a built in speaker so you can hear any post beeps.
Has most of the bells and whistles the more expensive 990 boards have, but is actually affordable
Cons: No USB 3 front header, but I knew that before I bought it so whatever.
Other Thoughts: Used this is my first build, and so far it has performed admirably.
Make sure you install the front header lights and buttons BEFORE YOU PUT THE MB IN THE CASE, or you will hop on that struggle bus and ride it for at least 40 minutes.
Other than that, great buy and I am fully satisfied. ECS seems to be a much less talk about brand, but to get a good 990FX board for this price is quite fantastic.
