BIOSTAR TA970 Ver. 5.3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a good board for what it is. There is nothing really TOO special about it, but I can't really fault it. So for the price, it's a good deal.

Cons: The North bridge ran a little too warm for my liking. I took off the heat sink and cleaned it off really good and added new thermal paste to it. It still runs slightly warm, but not near as bad. It would have honestly probably been just fine, but I worry about that sort of stuff.

Other Thoughts: Other than the North Bridge running warm (which probably wasn't anything bad to begin with) I was overall satisfied with this motherboard. There are better ones out there, but we aren't all millionaires. I would recommend this for a mid range computer. I am running it currently with an FX 6300 CPU and a R9 270X GPU. So far, no problems. =D

Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single 12V Rail, SLI & Crossfire Ready, Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I got this power supply when it was one sale, and I gotta say it has not disappointed me yet. It's smooth and quiet. I really have no room to complain.

Cons: It's not practical for building a high end PC. If you were going mid-tier and not planning on doing SLI Crossfire, this power supply will do just fine.

Other Thoughts: If you ARE building a gaming rig, and you don't plan on doing crossfire and such; This power supply can handle at the most (comfortably) at R9 270 or 270X without it being a power struggle. That's what I am running currently, and it's working just fine.

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is an excellent CPU. It stays nice and cool and doesn't fault under a heavy load. I would say coupled with a good motherboard, it will hold up nicely for any gaming rig or general mass multi tasking.

Cons: None so far. If anything does come up, I will be sure to leave an update. Otherwise, for the price, you can't really go wrong. =D

Other Thoughts: I haven't over clocked it yet, mostly because I haven't felt like I needed to yet. But it can be easily done so that is also a plus!
