CORSAIR CSM Series CS450M 450W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC 80 Plus Gold RoHS WEEE Modular ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: • 80 PLUS Gold
• Modular
• One of the quietest PSUs I have ever owned.

Cons: • Only one PCIe connector.
• Smells heavily of that smell associated with brand new PCBs. The PSU fan will blow this around for a little while.

ASRock H97M Anniversary LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: • Intel 9 series chipset. Most LGA 1150 boards have the Intel 8 series chipset.
• One touch Pentium G3258 overclocking. Plenty of settings available for manual overclocking. Cheaper than a Z87.
• Nicely placed SATA connector locations make wire management look cleaner.
• In BIOS internet BIOS update utility.

Cons: • Only two USB 3.0 ports on the back, a lot of H97 boards have four.

Other Thoughts: I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. There was an optional "Update for Windows 7" that caused my system to automatically restart a few seconds into loading Windows, even when trying to boot into safe mode. I had to use system restore. I am not sure if every Windows 7 user who uses this board will experience this, but if you have the same issue do not install the optional Windows updates.

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this card for almost 5 years now. It still holds up pretty strong and is comparable in performance to a GTX 750 today. The 1 GB of VRAM has not set me back too much as long as I keep the resolution down.

Cons: The stock fan is fairly loud. In hindsight I wish I got one with an aftermarket cooler. The card is also not that great with power efficiency, especially at idle. I kind of wonder if getting a Radeon HD 6850 would have been better the choice back in 2010.

Other Thoughts: If you need a cheap card, you have a decent enough power supply, and you don't mind how power inefficient or hot Fermi gets, this may work for you.
