AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor - HDZ965FBGMBOX

Pros: - Cheap for the performance - 7.4 in experience index - Much better than the opposing intel brand, i put it up against an i7 and destroyed the i7. - got it with a combo - easy install

Cons: -the heatsink/cpufan did give me some troubles but nothing to major or worth and egg off.

Overall Review: My Build: CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE MB - MSI 770-G45 AMD Motherboard RAM - OZC Signature 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 PSU - OZC Modstream Pro 500 W HDD - Seagate Barracuda 500GB GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 OS - Windows 7 64-Bit Case - XION Predator Gaming Series

Pros: - Cheap - Got it with a combo - It Works - Enough space to last me for a little until i get ssd

Cons: - It makes a lot of noise in my build which is a little irritating. - kind of hard to install, which may have just been a result of the case i choose. - Go for more storage for just a little more money.

Pretty Decent

Pros: - Very easy Layout - Clearly labeled sections in both the manual and directly on the board - Bios was very simple - Cheap

Cons: - The layout of the board was pretty tricky once it was inside the case, so i suggest doing most of your work out side of the case before installing. - Power slots were spread apart, which made organizing cables harder. (This isn't really a con, it just annoyed me a lot)

Overall Review: *Update your Bios* My Build: CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE MB - MSI 770-G45 AMD Motherboard RAM - OZC Signature 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 PSU - OZC Modstream Pro 500 W HDD - Seagate Barracuda 500GB GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 OS - Windows 7 64-Bit Case - XION Predator Gaming Series

Pros: Great connection, i recently put together a new build and decided to install a wireless card inside. Was i glad that i did. There is no hassle to get connection, as soon as i turned on the computer i could go online to update the rest of my gear.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Make sure you update the drivers for it.
