Pros: Generic as generic can be z75 board. Intel 82579V is bombproof, Intel USB3.0 controller, PS/2 for nkey rollover keyboards. This board has everything the serious gamer needs, and nothing more. Pair with a soundcard of your choice because onboard audio still sucks, but that should go without saying, really.
Cons: Out of stock. Shame Intel didn't commission more of these boards, they're the best thing I've ever had.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: You don't have to do anything to this card, just plug it in and it does everything fantastically, on Windows anyways.
Cons: When I tried to load this card on Linux the card would not get out of its reverse spin mode till the drivers were installed.
When I used a fan speed controller, just messing around with the card, I found that turning the fan speed up started to produce a discerning amount of vibration from the case. I've since just let the card do its thing and it preforms great.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT USE A FAN SPEED CONTROLLER. DO NOT USE TO INSTALL LINUX.READ FULL REVIEW
