5 out of 5 eggs Made a new build with this MB, AMD A6 5400K and Antec case. 08/13/2016

This review is from: MSI A88XI AC V2 FM2+ AMD A88X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I have used many MB over the years and MSI has never let me down. I took apart my rig and made this new one although it is not faster I wanted to try these new CPUs and a small case. Used my ram 8 gig 1600, WD hard drive with windows 7 already installed and a 500 watt ps. I bought the MSI A88XI V1, a new mitx Antec case and a AMD A 5400K cpu. These parts I bought over a year ago before putting it all together. It started up first time and every time. BEST NEWS: Windows 7 did not have to be reinstalled. The MSI disk installed all the software and drivers and MSI live update downloaded all the new stuff.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Plays older games fine even Civ 5 is OK. The 3d score from Pathmark was 647 and when I installed the GTX 650 it increased to 1853. For a 66 year old I thought I did a good job.

MSI GeForce GTX 650 DirectX 11 N650-MD1GD5/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Nice and compact will fit in any case. Has only one power plug. Inexpensive with rebate this is almost half the price I paid ($114 plus sales tax). NO PROBLEM CARD. Runs all the games I play CIV V, Borderlands 2, Call of Duty 2 and 3.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: motherboard Asus M5A97
CPU AMD X4 965
windows 7
500 watt power supply...Thermaltake

Pros: I applied this to a Anthlon II X2 250 on an Asrock motherboard. I haven't tired to overclock and I'm using the stock fan and heatsink. Temps are below 40 C.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: just buy it and use it. They have a client for life.
