This review is from: MSI H55M-ED55 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Ridiculously easy to set up. Solid performance. Good reviews online. I've mostly built with ASUS or Gigabyte and I'm sure they have a good H55 product as well but for the price I highly recommend the MSI.
Cons: None really. No RAID and few slots but that's known going in.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So so much faster than my old Socket A. Wow. The onboard graphics is perfectly adequate running Windows 7 and AutoCAD/Photoshop. I haven't tried gaming yet but it's good to have the option to upgrade to a PCIExpress video card down the road and have a solid system for an excellent price right now.
Cons: None for me. I've read the i3 is tough to overclock but not an issue as I'm not intending to OC.
Other Thoughts: Running on an MSI H55 board and 4Gb of Gskill DDR3. So quiet and solid performance.READ FULL REVIEW
