Pros: I've had zero problems even though it was a refurb. I've always heard good things about Newegg refurbs and had good experiences with them myself.
Easily plays everything I want it to.
Other Thoughts: It's capable of playing everything I play on the highest of settings and I believe that game-debate.com said it was capable of playing 100% of games currently on the market. Or was it 96%. One of my components was 96% at highest settings, the other was 100%. Either my CPU or GPU. Can't remember.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's big enough to fit my Windows 7 OS, with around 7-9GB to spare. I disabled a few minor features like hibernation to save a few GB here and there, but I don't think it was necessary to do so.
I managed to get this on sale as well, so it was an absolute steal. I have a very inexpensive motherboard and it used to spend around 30 seconds on the BIOS screen at startup. Now, it's around 3. I imagine once I switch motherboards, it will be even less.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS A960M-M3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It's inexpensive and was perfect for my budget build - since then, I've been slowly upgrading parts whenever I can.
Runs everything I need it to, games included. Civ 5, Dishonored, etc. Never had a problem.
Cons: None, all things considered. It's a basic, inexpensive board so I wasn't expecting any fancy features. I've never had a problem with it - it has always functioned well for me.
Actually, boot time on the BIOS seemed very slow. Not a problem, just a little annoying. Fixed that by moving the OS to a solid state drive. Now it only stays on the BIOS screen for a few seconds.
Other Thoughts: If you're on a very tight budget and don't need to overclock, go ahead. This board ran my FX-4300 just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
