MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Small, cheap, effective 12/05/2013

This review is from: MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: - Price: I paid $28 after rebate, before tax, have seen it that low several times since I bought it.
- Size: very compact, about 60-75% the size of my Z87 mATX board
- Performance: This board was able to run my gaming rig at with great performance and settings (GTX 770, i5 processor)

Cons: - Not many PCI slots: especially with a dual-slot PCI-E GPU, you'll run out of space quickly. It's a compact board.
- Not many SATA ports: only 2x SATA IIIs, 2x SATA IIs. I only needed 4, and put my 2 SSDs on the III ports.
- No front panel USB 3.0 connection? My case had a USB 3.0 port on the front, and I couldn't find where that plugs into the mobo on this one; I don't think it had it. There are 3.0 ports on the back, however.

Other Thoughts: All in all, for the price, I think this motherboard is great for a low-budget build (a la HTPC, there is HDMI on the board) or a decent mid tier gaming build (like mine). I bought this board before my processor and ended up finding an i5 4670K on sale so eventually got a Z87 board to replace this one, but I'm definitely gonna keep it and probably make an HTPC with it.

I think for anyone not planning on a large rig and not planning on overclocking, this board is a fantastic value, and I would highly recommend it when it's on sale.

Fractal Design Arc Mini Black High Performance PC Computer Case w/ USB 3.0 and 3 Fractal Design Silent Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of ventilation
2 solid 140mm fans included
Dust filter on bottom (for PSU)
Great for cable management (both side panels easy to remove)
6 easy-to-remove Drive slots in 2 bays
Case fan dial controller for up to 3 fans
USB 3.0

Cons: None that I saw

Other Thoughts: I used this case to build my first ever computer. All the extra features and gadgets of the case made set up not only easy and efficient but FUN. I had so much flexibility with this case, particularly with cable management and drive location.

Love this case, will be buying Fractal for my next one as well.

MSI Gaming N770 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card has been awesome. It's the centerpiece to my gaming PC built to avoid next-gen consoles. It runs the 3 free games it came with (AC4, Batman: Arkham Origins, Splinter Cell Blacklist) like a dream, and along with Battlefield 4 I experience 1080p on ultra settings with 60fps.

How could you ask for more?

I haven't messed around with tweaking any settings on the card yet. NVIDIA's Geforce Experience software is pretty cool, automatically "optimizing" games for you, which usually means maxing out all the settings.

Cons: None that I've experienced.

Other Thoughts: I'm running this with an i5 4670K (not OC'd yet) + 16GB 1600mhz RAM.

All in all I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase.
