This review is from: ASUS Z97-A/USB 3.1 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This Motherboard was recommended by a trusted friend, so I went with it. The first one failed, but Newegg promptly sent a replacement, which is working as it should. By the way, this is a screaming fast (using i5/3.5) and very versatile board.
Other Thoughts: I like it so much, I am ordering another (for my wife's PC).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The price is certainly reasonable, and this is not a "cheapie" case. They included all the necessary hardware (and then some) to make the job easy.
Cons: It is wider than most tower cases, but it still fits in well.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to use as a "backup" dual boot box (probably for Linux most of the time)., and it works well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Pros: Quick and easy installation (remember to disable on board sound first) into my 3-1/2 year old home built PC; driver installed from Windows Update. Additional programs on the CD work OK, too.
Cons: None yet. This is an inexpensive sound card... not expecting miracles (although Smokey Robinson sounds good through it ;) ).
Other Thoughts: Had I not experienced a problem with choppy audio from the ASUS mobo audio system, I would not have even upgraded to this. I use the PC for radio communications (Flex 6700, SmartSDR, and Digital Audio Exchange... a form of "virtual" audio line via the Ethernet cable connecting the PC and the radio), and the audio through DAX was horrible. With this sound card, it sounds great.READ FULL REVIEW
