ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -It was really fine during the time it ran
-looks cool
-good instructions
-lot of bios settings. easy to use options on there too

Cons: It died after only 6 months of usage. talk about disappointment. It was running fine until I started playing battlefield 4, at which point it just started freezing and shutting off. After it happened for the 1st time, it would randomly shut off, whether it was idle or being used intensively. Come on its, $90 should have lasted a least a year. I've gamed harder on cheaper motherboards. I was trying to use the warranty, but knowing I was going to get a "remanufactured" (customer service will never stray from this term), that had supposedly been rigorously tested, I was turned off. Plus, they have some really bad reviews so didn't want to waste time

Other Thoughts: It deserved 2/5 because it was fine during the time it ran, and has some good options. Given the limited options as far as motherboards for AMD, i will have to stick with asus and get the sabertooth - should have some better luck there

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3850 DirectX 10.1 100226L 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: i can play Call of Duty 4, Oblivion on 1400x900 and max settings without any problem. the card is not that big that you need to get a new case. it should fit in the average case without trouble, as it did in mine

Cons: just like a previous reviewer, I did have some problems fixing the non-working sound(it took me quite some surfing on the internet to figure it out), but after re-enabling my onboard sound using the bios, it was fine
