Entry level Gamer win

ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything is where it needs to be, it's got potential for expanding with pcie 16x, 8x if you ever want to expand.

Cons: Ram slots are close to your CPU, if you have an aftermarket CPU heatsink it might get into the way of your ram slots (especially if you have a heat spreader on your ram). Also, the screw positions aren't standard atx, they removed all of the screw points on the right of the board and added 2 to the middle and left. This makes the right side of the board feel a bit flimsy when putting in cables. But it doesn't hinder anything if you're careful.

Overall Review: I'm an entry level gamer and this my first build. For the price and the quality (so far, 1 month) its great. :)

Perfect

Pros: It's a PC P&C, I've never had one of their products ever fail on me and this one is doing just as well. Replaced my 750W with this and had the other one for years.

Cons: It's white and my case is black?

Great Case and Price

Pros: Lot's of room, great airflow. I'm an entry level gamer and first build and this fit the bill perfectly!

Cons: The only con I have (and I knew this from looking at the pictures carefully) is that if you have a aftermarket heat sink the window side fan will have to come off. I got the Hyper 212 Evo and it just fits inside. I just moved the fan to the bottom so no problem!

Overall Review: Great Case for the price and the airflow, cool glow. Simple looking. A little interesting routing cables in the back but... when isn't it? You've only got about 1/2 inch or so and plenty of tie down spots!
