Most Favorable Review

Awesome Board, lots of features!

MSI 785GT-E63 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The on board HDMI and optical actually sound great, and look awesome, can watch HD movies FLAWLESSLY, and play most games on the onboard video/sound, its pretty nice. TONS of OC options, and really, just a nice board overall, if you are looking for a cheaper system to do MILD gaming with, and something that will make a good cheap media center, this is the board for you.

Cons: Only 1 PCIE 2.0, but Not really a "con" since i knew it when I ordered it...

Most Critical Review

Worked great for awhile.

KINGWIN Mach 1 ABT-1000MA1S 1000 W ATX / BTX SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
KINGWIN Mach 1 ABT-1000MA1S 1000 W ATX / BTX SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I built my PC at the end of 2010. This PSU worked great powering an I7-930 OC'd to 4ghz, and dual GTX 480's OC'd for 2 years.

Cons: Installed Far Cry 3, played for about 30 minutes, apparently Far Cry 3 blew this PSU's face off. This PSU blew sparks out of the back of my case.

Overall Review: I ordered another PSU ( Mine also didn't come with the warranty sticker, so I can't return it, such terrible business practice ) Hopefully my other parts are still good....

Pros: I have built tons of systems with this dvd drive, some of them from a year ago, and none of them have had any issues.. WONDERFUL dvd burner

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Great price, great burner!

Pros: Very nice pad, very smooth, very responsive, looks good.

Cons: Price, I NEVER thought I would pay that for a mouse pad... but I did not want cloth..

Decent card for the price

Pros: My friend was wanting a card that was cheap, I ordered this for him and he gave me the cash.... but he likes it so far. Not as good as my gtx 480 of course, but still, a great card for the price.

Cons: It's not a gtx 480.

Great NIC

Pros: Well, all I can really say is this. Yes, I do see a difference. A big difference. BUT, is it worth 129.99? To me, yes, for a "casual gamer"? Not even close. If you are just a casual gamer who plays once in awhile, do not even think about getting this, it isn't worth it. BUT, If you play WoW, or any FPS online, this is a MUST HAVE to boost your game up. My latency went from 300+ to ~75-100.... I have Cox cable, 25MB+ down, 3MB+ up. I do not have a bad connection, but the latency is a bit higher than I want, but this did help that quite a bit.. Very nice software to let you change all the difference settings and priorities to programs.

Cons: It can't fix my connection.

Overall Review: This can only make it where your COMPUTER Is not the issue, if you still have a bad connection, you will still lag. But this can definitely help.
