Pros: Rock-solid stability with a stable motherboard. I have never had less than the performance I needed. Was cheap three years ago when I bought it. Still a champ.

Cons: Not as fast as Intel offerings on paper (I've never found a reason to care, or to switch).

Other Thoughts: This still runs everything I need to run without me thinking "aww, my processor is slow." This has been the best perennial winner of a CPU I have ever had. I'd still recommend it as long as the price is right.

5 out of 5 eggs I love the UD series motherboards 01/30/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I don't want to go too much into all of the features of this motherboard because frankly I don't use most of them. I am a fan generally of the UD series of Gigabyte motherboards -- I have found them to be stable, long-lived and rich in the features I desire. I have built systems with three of these motherboards and have never had a problem.

Cons: I really can't think of any.

Pros: Processor is fast, hard drive is fast enough, system is stable, plenty of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, minimal crapware. Very adequate for a home or office desktop.

Cons: Small power supply will not support a decent add-in graphics card, integrated graphics are not adequate for any sort of gaming, 6GB of RAM is not adequate for Windows 8 (I constantly get low memory warnings while running Chrome and Microsoft Word/Excel), integrated graphics system DOES NOT support multiple monitors. Windows 8 is irritating to me. I've been using this for about 5 months now and it still takes me longer to do most things than Windows 7 did. The Metro apps are cute but slow to load. This is a problem with Windows 8 and I guess all new computers come with it these days. Not knocking off an egg for it, I'm just venting.

Other Thoughts: I use this desktop in a business setting. I need at least two monitors for my work and I could not get multiple monitors to work while one was plugged into the VGA port and the other plugged into HDMI. I am having to run a USB 3.0 display adapter and that has some problems associated with it. This is FINE for basic stuff and will be inadequate for anything graphics- or memory-intensive without upgrading GPU/RAM/power supply.
