GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Soundblaster Sound Core 3D provides really good sound with many options for adjustment to suit tastes.
Very clean design made it easy to build up.
Way more expansion capability than I need.
It does what Gigabyte says it can do.

Cons: Blue Ambient LED seems a bit weak.
Upgradeable opamp seems a bit frivolous.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this mobo. I've owned it four months and absolutely no performance issues. I love it when I buy something I don't have to fiddle with. The weak blue LED could be a defect, but my case has red LEDs so its not worth my effort to investigate fixing it.

PowerColor Radeon HD 4850 DirectX 10.1 AX4850 512MD3-PPH 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems very fast and video quality is quite good.

Cons: First card only lasted about a minute and a half. RMA has been running fine for about 7 weeks. Noticing some blue pixellation artifacts in America's Army game. Cannot get theater mode to display video full screen on secondary monitor with cloned displays.

Other Thoughts: Cons are comparing new card in new Vista 64 computer with an older Intel P4 XP computer with ATI X1650 card and Catalyst drivers. I can't understand why features I used in older card and drivers don't work in newer system. I'm using latest 64 bit Catalyst 9.1.

4 out of 5 eggs Good Case-A few niggling shortcomings 01/07/2009

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Huge fans=great airflow, low noise. Nice area for routing cables for improved air flow and neat looking installation.

Cons: What's the point of filter in front bezel if the side fan vent has no filter? No system speaker. Had to find my own when I had problems and needed to hear beep codes from mobo.

Other Thoughts: Fabricated my own filter for side fan opening. With the bottom mounted power supply found a neater installation by rotating top fan 90 degrees clockwise and tie wrapping wires along back of case.
