MSI B85-G41 PC Mate LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX High Performance CF Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Has everything (except 7.1 surround sound for those who want it) you need for a great board for future upgrades!

Cons: have two of these and have had no issues what so ever!

Other Thoughts: Buy it without even thinking about it, its the most amazing board i have ever had!

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 02G-P4-2651-KR 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: a VERY good card for how small it is and how cheap it is....this card packs a HUGE punch for gamers with a low budget.

Cons: this card can run pretty hot unfortunatley...but if you have any tech knowledge simply disassemble the card and apply after market thermal past...this alone dropped me from around 60c under max about 52c max load...another thing about this card that i dont like is that for some reason this card will NEVER reach 100% fan speed...maxes out at 70% fan speed...i have contacted EVGA but they have not gotten back to me in the past 2 months...note worthy also that this card cannot OC ver easily...i max out at 150+mhz on the core clock...any higher and my card will crash and if im in the middle of a game my FPS tanks...but i guess thats more over the fact that if you want a higher clock then you should buy the OC version

Other Thoughts: may have done alot of complaining but this card is GREAT playes BF3 great and MW3 great and crysis at around 30-40 fps (if you use a program to change a few settings)

Pros: GREAT RAM!! i got it when it was $29.99 over Christmas... has a Windows Index of 7.5! the heat spreaders do a GREAT job...evenly distributes the small amount of heat that they do make

Cons: nothing!

Other Thoughts: i was a little worried that they would block the 212 heat-sink that i just ordered...but another review said that they work just fine with it!
