Asus A68HM motherboard

ASUS AMD A68HM-K FM2+ AMD A68H FCH (Bolton D2H) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS AMD A68HM-K FM2+ AMD A68H FCH (Bolton D2H) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I bought this board for a cheap office upgrade build. The client wanted something in the $20-300 range with Windows 7. It has well so far.

Cons: None really! It's not being used as a reservations computer in a small office

Overall Review: I would recommend this for anyone who is looking to build a computer for a light user. It's not intended as a gaming computer.

Gigabyte RX 560 4GB video card

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 560 16CU DirectX 12 GV-RX560GAMING OC-4GD REV2.0 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 ATX Video Card
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 560 16CU DirectX 12 GV-RX560GAMING OC-4GD REV2.0 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 ATX Video Card

Pros: The card works well. I have a RX580 at work and there is no significant difference. If you're a miner you may want the 580 card.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I got the card before the big price hike so the price was good. Newegg has some of the best prices anywhere.

H&R Block Tax Software Deluxe

H&R BLOCK Tax Software Deluxe + State 2017
H&R BLOCK Tax Software Deluxe + State 2017

Pros: The software is easy to follow and install. You have the option of installing from the CD or you can download it.

Cons: The software wouldn't allow me to input negative numbers for a 1099R form. I know this is is revenue form but I lost money. I ended up taking the minor loss in my return.

Overall Review: Overall, it's no different than Turbo Tax or Tax Act. I went onto the Turbo Tax and checked my taxes there to make sure everything was the same. The differences between the 3 products is like asking someone which shade of brilliant white to you like best.

Pros: The laptop performs well and was a great buy for the price!

Cons: Slow drive. I replaced the existing drive with a solid state.

Overall Review: After replacing the existing drive with a solid state. I bought an external enclosure and used the 1 terabyte drive as a backup.

Asus F2A55-M LK Works as Advertised

ASUS F2A55-M LK PLUS FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS F2A55-M LK PLUS FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Works as advertised! I am rebuilding 5 workstations that were initially built with MSI Intel boards and the Asus board works beautifully. I bought this as part of a kit.

Cons: DHL shipping is terrible! Sometimes the parts are shipped by UPS and I can track with no issues. Whenever Newegg chooses DHL I have no idea where my package or when it will arrive. It is suppose to arrive in 4-7 days. If I am lucky it will arrive on the 7th day. A couple of times it has taken 9 business days. I'm working on a budget so I don't have a choice but it's not a good choice.

Overall Review: I've run Windows XP, 7 and 8 with no issues.
