AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Great CPU for the money. I use it for a living room Gaming/ Media/ Streaming PC and it works fine. I have not had an issue yet with the stock cooler, so I can't ding it there. For the money, you can't beat it's performance for a desktop PC. Unless you are worried about ultimate performance, then why spend more when this CPU is available?

Cons: None so far

EVGA GeForce GT 640 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 02G-P4-2643-KR 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Good card for the money, and I use it for games. I play Skyrim a lot, and this handles it well on medium to high settings. Ultra High settings can bog down the fps during big battles, but so far on medium it seems to perform well.

Cons: Only has a micro HDMI output. I had to buy another cord for it, although I could have gotten an adapter. I blame myself for not reading the specs carefully enough though.

Other Thoughts: I use this system for gaming and streaming on a 47" flat screen LED TV. I will probably upgrade this card in due course, but so far, for the price, I'm impressed with it's performance. Just be aware that the HDMI output is a micro-HDMI and you'll be fine. Other than that, I have no complaints about this card and would definitely recommend it for someone looking for a good card in the price range.

BIOSTAR TA970 Ver. 5.3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Solid board, seems to be working well. I bought it for it's "bang for the buck" factor, have been using the build for the past 3 months as a living room gaming/streaming system to a 47" flat screen tv ... no issues after 3 months and it is used almost daily for Skyrim, Netflix, Vudu, HBOGo, Tropico 4 etc ...

Cons: I read about this (and other boards) before buying. I realized it's limitations beforehand. There are things that could be better in terms of features, but that would bump up the price so I have no real cons for this board.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely use this board again if the need arose for a similar build. I have not had any negative experiences with it, but I have NOT attempted a RAID, and probably wouldn't for this board.
