This review is from: PC CHIPS A15G (V1.0) AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I used this board to rebuild a customer's business PC. Solid board, booted up right out of the box with an Athlon 64 X2 5800 and 2 GB of Kingston DDR800 RAM. Probably not what you'd want to use for an serious gaming, but it's a good solution for a workstation/student PC build.
Other Thoughts: 5 eggs - it does what it was expected to do as a standalone workstation/business PC at budget price. No fuss, no glitches or weird workarounds. Just out of the box, attach peripherals and load the OS. I was pleasantly surprised as I never thought about using PC Chips mobos (ASUS and Gigabyte fan myself) until a friend told me he used this before on his wife's machine with great results.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy installation and setup, great graphics processing, 2 of these in SLI mode run Warhammer Online flawlessly at maxed settings. No more 3-minute wait when alt-tabbing to look at something.
Great card for the money, and two in SLI mode are a great budget gaming solution for those who just can't swing the extra cash to get the high-dollar cards, but want a solid SLI graphics setup.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a single EVGA 7600GT to two of these....the difference was far more than I expected it to be.
XFX's warranty is great, and product registration takes about 5 minutes to do...
As always, Newegg was fast with the shipping...hands-down the best vendor to use for PC components.
System specs: Vista Ultimate 64-bit, Athlon 64 x2 5200 (2.71 GHz), ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe, 8GB A-Data DDR2 800MHz RAM, 250 GB SATA HDD, Raidmax 700W PSU
