Great Budget MB

BIOSTAR G41M7 LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
BIOSTAR G41M7 LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great little MB. Didn't have any problems setting it up and haven't had any issues so far

Cons: Not overclocking friendly. you can get a mild overclock out of it, but thats a bout it. Not what i got it for but just want to let others know.

Overall Review: intel celeron 2.6ghz 2gb ddr2 800 ram Win7

Most Critical Review

Great For The price, But...

Diablotek PHD Series PHD450 450 W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply
Diablotek PHD Series PHD450 450 W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply

Pros: Great little power supply, ran a gtx470 with it no problem.

Cons: No after 2 months its dead and i have to try and rma with the manufacture. no clue how long that is going to take, but only time will tell.

Overall Review: Currently was running an intel celreon dual core, one 500gb hard drive 2gb ram, and a gtx470

Great ram for the price

Patriot Signature Line 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PSD38G1600KH
Patriot Signature Line 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PSD38G1600KH

Pros: Runs great and has a low profile so I don't have to worry about my cpu cooler hitting them. Started up running at 1600 MHZ.

Cons: SPD came up 11-11-11-28 instead of the advertised 9-9-9-24

Overall Review: Would have been five eggs except the SPD didn't come up right. Haven't trid to see if it is stable at the advertised timings since it is a huge upgrade from my old ddr2 800

Decent Price. Poor Quality Control

Seagate BarraCuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great Price for the size, but not much else.

Cons: Ordered 2 of these and one wouldn't even be recognized and the other dismounted itself after trying to format and had multiple bad sectors right out of the box. Seagates own software would not even run a basic diagnostic on it.

Overall Review: If you get on that works great, but the quality control has really gone downhill for Seagate.

Awesome little worker

Intel Celeron E3400 - Celeron Dual-Core Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - BX80571E3400
Intel Celeron E3400 - Celeron Dual-Core Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor - BX80571E3400

Pros: Great performer for a low powered system. easy to keep cool. I havwe yet to see it hit 60C on air overclocking it to 3.2ghz

Cons: Only and 800 Mhz fsb, but despite that it does really well

Great Mobo

EVGA 122-YW-E173-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA 122-YW-E173-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is a great motherboard for the price. I have had almost no problems with it since i got it. i did have a doa board when i first got it, but newegg was awesome and had great turnaround

Cons: The sata connectors are a little bit fragile so be careful when plugging them in i have broken one but the rest of the motherboard still works so i am happy. Also you need to have a fairly high understanding of how to flash the bios and all the other technical stuff that goes with it.

Overall Review: Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Ghz OC'ED to 3.6Ghz and this is a 45nm cpu and it posted fine when i first got it. 6GB 800MHZ RAM XfX Force 9800GT Windows 7
