Great Value....not its not walmart

ECS BLACK SERIES A790GXM-AD3 AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ECS BLACK SERIES A790GXM-AD3 AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: 1. 790GX chipset 2. 2x PCI-e 3. plenty of sata connections 4. colorful 5. supports up to 140w processors

Cons: 1. audio works but not amazing quality but if you want great audio get an audio card. nothing really... Does what it says it will do

Overall Review: the box says supports 140w processors but a sticker on the mobo says upto 160w. Doesn't really matter but makes me scratch my head

Interesting case!

Riotoro CR1080 Black SPCC (Cold Roll Steel) Metal ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Riotoro CR1080 Black SPCC (Cold Roll Steel) Metal ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: - compartmentalized PSU from rest of case. - plenty of room for cable management in the back - Inverted design reversed window side of PC if you want a door on the left side.

Cons: - Its clearly marked but need to be weary of what size PSU can fit. Will fit ATX but some of them can be snug. - GPUs are an issue. Easily fit a Sapphire Nitro+ OC RX480. Will not fit anything bigger. I tried putting in an ASUS Strix 1080 and it would not fit.

Overall Review: Interesting case if you want a full size ATX design in a tiny box.

Love it!

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 140W Processor - HDZ965FBGIBOX
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 140W Processor - HDZ965FBGIBOX

Pros: 1. Its a beast. 2. Price compared to the competition 3. 3.4 GHz. Seen some people OC it on Air over 4.0GHz :).

Cons: 1. Not tri channel support - everything that I've seen is that 99% of applications don't even notice the difference at this stage in the game. 2. 140w.... meh I don't mind it so much keeps my house warmer...just kidding

Overall Review: everyone who is remotely interested should look into the scandals that have come to light around Intel and the unfair business practices. Although I do have to admit their I7 is a beast of things.

XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case
XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1. 2 huge fans (250mm x 2) 2. Air flow is awesome. 3. layout works great. 4. The HD trays are nice but no other mounting offered 5. easy cd/dvd/blueray drive bay installation. 6. Fan speed controllers for the 2 fans. Also glow blue...but a con too

Cons: 1. Power button feels cheap. Doesn't mean its cheap. 2. Instruction book is a joke. Missing little accessories it says it has. 3. I'm afraid the little feet on the bottom might break from cheap plastic. Dont really need them though 4. Fans glow blow. Cant turn just the lights off.

Overall Review: All in all i think this case is a good case. I got it on sale so was a really good deal. The quality isn't superb but you pay for waht you get. I don't think i'll have anyproblems but dont mistake it for a $200 case.
