This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: Its not windows 8 or 8.1. You need to have an OS that is mouse and keyboard friendly when building a gaming rig. Easy to navigate. Building a system for my sister for her B-day, she is used to Vista. She will be happy with 7. Also Very Stable for over clockers.
Cons: None, I have built lots of rigs with windows 7 and only 1 with windows 8.
Windows 8 is not desktop friendly, and 7 Rocks!!!
Other Thoughts: Microsoft needs to think a little more of us personal computer builders and less of the large PC moguls. There is a Whole do-it-yourself computer industry out there building parts for a gaming friendly OS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Upgraded from a Phenom II 1075 T and have it clocked to 4 ghz to start. Very fast with everything I throw at it. you just can't beat it for the price. No stops, shunts, hick-ups or shutters. Rock solid chip.
Cons: None. Just reallocate the cooler to your Mom's Sargas chip and you will be happy.
Other Thoughts: I recommend a good quality aftermarket cooler as with any enthusiast chip. Mine is water cooled also be sure your mother board can handle the extra power consumption, I here all kinds of complaints from people using these monsters on an inferior, insufficient board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased this for a build with an intel Q6600 way back in 2006 or 07 and It has been and still serves me well. This has been a very stable PSU and it has outlasted the processor and mother board that I purchased it with. I am now on my 2nd build with this PSU and plan to use it on the 3rd. At first I was impressed with the ability to change the colors and the built in fan attenuator but now I'm impressed that it is still running just as it did when I purchased it from Newegg.
Cons: None what so ever.
Other Thoughts: If you happen to run across one of these new or used you had better latch on to it because it's a keeper.READ FULL REVIEW
