This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: everything needed in a single board. plenty of usb ports, good price
Cons: had the board for 6 months and it completely died. seems to always happen to me with AMD hardware.
Other Thoughts: for a solid reliable board ill continue to support intel and purchase higher price parts to have that cozy feeling "inside".READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought 3 of these for a tri screen setup with a gtx680 most games look great! could never go back to just one screen again. the monitors have great color, they look great with the nicely designed colored bases. brightness is great did not get any dead pixels. all 3 monitors were in great shape from shipping "3 days on ups including through snow storms" one box had a rip but no damage to the screen or styrofoam inside. nicely packaged. monitors have all accessories. dual link dvi, hdmi, sound cable, power cable, vga. setup is a breeze! great monitors, great prices!! also bought with an extended warranty so 4 year warranties are well worth the price.
Cons: when setting up for the first time two of my monitors were great, same color same brightness. the third monitor was setup completely opposite way too bright and the RGB was set more towards red. when doing a tri setup there was a ton of ghosting!! fixed through the hidden menu by turning off the monitor and holding the far left button then turning the monitor back on while holding the far left button then hitting the third button in from the left. i then turned off OD on all three monitors and changed it to cool. this helped with ghosting trumendously! also the menu's are pretty hard to navigate took me a while to figure out the button configurations but worth the time to get them perfectly setup.
Other Thoughts: for the price i paid for all three with extended warranties abourt $850 these are some of the best monitors i have ever used. a big plus with 3d surround. they make me feel like i have a huge command center. they are much bigger than i expected. i went from one 27" 60hz to 3 of these. big improvement!!READ FULL REVIEW
