Great Budget MB
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
Great For The price, But...
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
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
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.
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
