This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Price was great for the features and quality of the board. For mid range to high level gaming, this board is everything you should need.
Cons: Could maybe have a better audio controller, The audio is just fine, but it is not HD.
Other Thoughts: Supports 2 way SLI/Crossfire, ASUS is just quality around the board from what I have experienced and this is no different with a lower priced/performance board. Easy to work with, though the manual had some missprints in it. No issues though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This cpu runs very cool on the stock cooler that came with it. Super easy to install. When I say cool, I mean that under full gaming load it runs max 54C with the stock air cooler. My case is the nzxt phantom with no additional fans than what came with it. I did use a nice Antec silver paste, but all things aside it is very impressive at those temps. The performance per dollar is amazing and it runs very quiet while maintaining those temps.
Cons: About the only thing would be the inability to overclock or not having an integrated GPU. No eggs removed
Other Thoughts: For me, I knew I didn't need to overclock so I went with the best standard CPU for the price, and it delivers. I anticipated perhaps having to get a closed liquid loop for the CPU, but the temps blew me away. Like I said 54C max under gaming load. I play DayZ a lot and that is CPU intensive. The components and stock air cooler are great. Also, anyone who is putting this in a desktop most certainly has GPU for gaming so the fact that this has no GPU integrated just means you got better performance for the price. I will definitely recommend this to others.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is fast and powerful. The ease of setup was superb. I have been able to max out far cry 3, metro last light. At 1080p gaming this card is probably best bang for the buck. Great quality
Cons: The only thing I can think of would be the game coupon as it has already been redeemed it says. Other than that I would say not having two.
Other Thoughts: Great card for the money, Any desktop build would blow me away after upgrading from my laptop but this really went above what I expected.READ FULL REVIEW
