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

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-AM1M-S2H AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Low cost namebrand motherboard that worked on install. Only 4 of 5 stars because of minor issues as noted in cons.
Cons: Driver Disc was acting strange when trying to load drivers. I ended up placing this DVD into another computer, writing those files to hard drive, and then burning a different DVD-R with the data off the hard drive that came off the original disc to get the driver disc to work correctly in new build.
Time Delay at POST is very short, you have to be very quick to get into BIOS. Took me 3 tries but got in.
Tried to use HDMI at get go as display without OS installed and ran into some video problems. HDMI video didnt work correctly until after OS was installed with video driver. Good thing TV had a VGA port to use for initial build.
Other Thoughts: Default BIOS config is UEFI for Windows 8. I had to go into BIOS and switch all settings to Legacy for Windows 7 64-bit build. Boot order also had to be selected with Legacy boot order vs UEFI default.READ FULL REVIEW
