MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) AM3+ AMD 760G 2 SATA 6Gb/s (7~8) ports by ASMEDIA 1061 Supports storage and data transfers at up to 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent feature set for a cheap board: USB 3.0 with a front panel heade and a pair of SATA 3.0 ports (though no RAID for them) being what really drew my attention.

Cons: Biggest con on mine is a defective memory slot. No POST if only slot 2 is occupied. When both slots are filled, BIOS shows "Physical memory" as only one slot worth but will show timings on second slot.

Other Thoughts: Tried memory kits from other machines, tried different CPUs to see if it was a memory controller problem, just a bad board. Everything else on it functions, but still a major malfunction.

Seagate Seven mm 500GB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STDZ500400
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: What a beauty! The packaging, design, finish...this is such a nice looking drive. If you have a sleek ultrabook/macbook and want a drive that matches the look of your machine, this is it. It is unbelievably thin and the anodized aluminum finish is nice to look at though a bit hard to keep from getting covered with fingerprints.

The USB 3.0 is nice and fast with a good, sturdy connection and its package offers great protection and is nice enough to not just toss out.

Cons: The biggest con is price/GB.

Other Thoughts: I've never been one to use the included utilities on drives. My first step is to just format them for a blank drive. For this, I decided to try it out just to see. It is a very simple, intuitive interface perfect for full computer backups that will actually monitor file changes and keep your backup current. There are other mobile/cloud options as well so the software side is very well rounded.

As I stated in the Pros though, the main reason to get this drive over other externals is its design.

Zotac ZT-71107-10L GeForce GT 730 Graphic Card - 902 MHz Core - 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM - PCI Express 2.0 x1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: As the title says, this is the most powerful PCIe x1 card I've seen. It's really quite a capable little card . It packs a nice little Kepler based GPU with 384 shaders, the memory bus is only 64bit to DDR3 chips but with only a single PCIe lane, it's fairly well matched up. I've found the card to be quite overclockable, though. I've had no problem upping the memory to 1100MHz and the GPU to 1000MHz. With a passive cooler it is obviously silent and at only 23w it keeps cool and doesn't require a power supply upgrade. While not really a gaming card, I have found it to be capable of playing quite a few games very well. Portal 2 is no problem on medium settings, my beloved old Fallout 3 and New Vegas games can be run well on a blend of medium-high settings, Civ V runs great as do many older games. Of course the hardware acceleration for HD video and 3d makes it a perfect card for HTPCs.

Cons: None so long as you understand you're not going to be playing Battlefield 4 on high settings at high resolutions.

Other Thoughts: I had a GT520 (610...same card) in this machine and saw this and bought it as a "why not?" upgrade. While still no replacement for my primary gaming console, it was a considerable upgrade for the games I do play. The 520 is in another HTPC that doesn't play any games so it's still around. I wasn't expecting much from the card, but have been pleasantly surprised. If you do want to play games, I would advise that you overclock the memory. 3dmark scores jumped considerably from 900mhz to 1000.
