AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive, lower wattage, easily overclocked, durable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Might be nice to build around an i5 but it would cost easily twice as much to get this performance.
A great choice for everyone except hardcore gamers

GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive and straightforward to setup. Built an inexpensive desktop with a Vishera 6300. Worked right out of the box. Able to incorporate some old IDE drives as secondary HDD. Built a split install Win 7 build with a SDD for Windows and a HDD for Users and it went flawlessly.

Cons: The subtitle referencing the Radeon 3000 graphics onboard should actually be a warning. This board would be the number one go-to board for an inexpensive AMD board if it had a more modern GPU set on board. Would be nice to have SATA 3 and a couple more fan headers but this isn't a must have as much as a modern GPU. I worry that Windows 10 will require a graphics card because of the driver limits of the Radeon3000 after Win 7

Other Thoughts: This board is used by more professional builders than a lot of other boards because of the feature set, reliability and price. Most techs with higher skill sets get put off by 1) the old onboard graphics set, 2) the SATA2 instead of SATA3, the old BIOS and 4) the single fan header. The IDE connector is a nice plus for flexibility replacing older builds

5 out of 5 eggs Simple Download but No ISO 07/03/2015

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 for PC and Mac - 3 PC - Download

Pros: Easy to download and setup. Got backups going on a spare 1TB easily

Cons: No ISO file provides so can't easily create a CD bootable or not.
I'm concerned that if it all goes South I would need to rebuild a PC just to re-download the software to restore the machine. It would be much easier to boot from a CD with the application and restore from there. Maybe there's a way to do this I haven't found yet.

Other Thoughts: Nice software with great reviews. I need to figure out how to do bare metal restorals and it wasn't clear from what I've seen so far but don't want to take off an egg for that.
