This review is from: BIOSTAR A960G+ AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Cheap... maybe too cheap.
Cons: Looks like more of a board than it is. When I was shopping for my next mother board I had a few things I was looking for. I wanted on-board video as well as the 9-series chip set. When I saw this board I thought I had found that. The fact that it says 960 in the name of the board. It was also the right price. I did look at what chips it could use and the FX series was there as well.
After I got the board though I found out that it may not work with the new FX series chips because they actually require a 9 series chip set. The board worked with all the FX chips that existed when it came out but since then new FX chips have come out that it does not support.
It is hard to say that it is the boards fault or Biostar's fault but I am writing this so that they can see why people hate this board. I would be I am not the only one who purchased to quickly thinking that it would work with all the FX chips.
Other Thoughts: When I was doing my searches this was one of only two boards that came up. There don't seem to be any 9series boards with on board video.
I know that most gamers are the ones buying super fast chips and they like video cards but I want to put this in a small local server capacity and I just wanted a fast chip set and processor so that it doesn't get bogged down. Video quality is a secondary consideration and I wish there was something out there like what I am looking for.
This review is from: Mini Military Apache RC Helicopter (Syma, S012 AH-64)
Pros: Good little toy for a reasonable price.
Cons: Not much there. It is a very simple toy. I know that real remote control choppers cost a lot more than this but it is only fun for about a day... then you realize you can't really control it that well.
Other Thoughts: Not bad for the price. We had fun but only really played with it once. I got it as a shell shocker for my bro but I wish I could afford something much nicer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb Quad-Core 3.0GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor HDX945FBGIBOX
Pros: Yeah, this chip is nice. I would say Commander Data is jealous but then someone would bust out the fake math used on the show to refute me...
Anyway I used this to build a PC for grandma and I am jealous.
Cons: I built this PC for someone else. :(
Other Thoughts: I can't really compare this too other tech in the same generation because this is the only quad I have used so far, but I love this one.
The whole platform is faster too so the MOBO and DDR3 RAM all work with the CPU to produce the fastest coolest PC I have ever built.
Grandma's PC is now faster than mine. :(
