This review is from: AMD FX-8300 Vishera 8-Core 3.3 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W FD8300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: Bought this 8-core to replace my 2009 Athlon II x4 620 2600Mhz 95 watt CPU. Now I have about the same power consumption but way better performance.
Cons: none to list
Other Thoughts: I also have the FX-8350 125 watt 4.0Ghz in another build, I bought this FX-8300 because price was right at $119.99 and 95 watt cpu so I can run this cpu for general computing as I am now + most games whereas the Athlon II x4 620 2600mhz was starting to lag a some, and when I really want maximum performance I can turn the 8350 on instead.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GT 730 2GB 80mm FAN
Pros: Card runs better than the Radeon HD5450 I had prior. Price was good for what i got.
Cons: No flaws to share. Video Card works as intended
Other Thoughts: For games I play, I should have spent my money on the GTX or Ti for better performance. The video card isnt a bad video card, but after its installation I fond out that it is somewhat lacking in GPU processing power, however it is better than the Radeon HD5450 I had prior.READ FULL REVIEW
