Pros: I've been fiddling around with a ton of different things that would've taken me forever on my old Intel based computer. I'm just blown away by this upgrade. I'm not knocking Intel, I know they make great chips but for the price, they cannot touch this chip.
Cons: The HSF that comes with the chip is really annoying on load. SpeedFan is great for combating this. I don't like my CPU getting above 45c. Right now I'm idling at 32c. :]READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I have not had a problem at all with this motherboard. It runs my 3.4 ghz phenom II x4 BE superbly. Can't go wrong with ASUS in my experience.
Other Thoughts: I wish the Sata ports were located in a different spot. If I was running 2 GPU's it'd be rather annoying cable management wise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've not been much of a gamer for the last couple years as work has pretty much consumed my life. After I threw this new computer together I had to test out this card. I played Dirt 2 for around 3 hours straight. Then I installed Red Alert 3, RA2, Generals, Generals ZH, Yuri's, etc. and it runs all of it at the highest resolution with highest settings. I'm blown away with this card.
Cons: The size of the card but you can't really control that when you get to the level this graphic card can handle. :p
Other Thoughts: Before this new build I was running an 8800 GTS and that thing was flaming hot constantly. But that could have been my small case. I cannot believe how cool this 5870 runs even when on load. Tremendous job done by ATI/AMD and ASUS.READ FULL REVIEW
