ASUS VW224T Black 22
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Big
- Price
- Crystal Clear

Cons: - Big

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these for my setup and let me tell you, it was almost a mistake. These monitors are big you never realize how big 2x 22" monitors are until you put them together. the picture is wonderful, tons of real estate, no dead pixels, no issues with color. The on board speakers are really horrid. But you shouldn't need them. I also purchased a VW226T same size just different aspect ratio & power consumption. Its $10 cheaper but, all three monitors are excellent.

ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - USB 3.0
- SATA 6.0 Gb/S
- Price
- UEFI Bios
- Runs Cool (26 C Currently)

Cons: - One minor hiccup, plugged my monitor into my Mobo instead of my graphics card to test the on board capabilities, had a horrible time trying to get the mobo to go back to the graphics card, ended up pulling the card and putting it back to reset the issue. Not enough to warrant an egg.

Other Thoughts: For the price, and features, you cannot beat the board. I am a heavy Asus fan but, my client said they wanted something with the following features, USB 3.0, SATA 6.0 Gb/S, and HDMI would be nice but not needed. So I found this beast. It runs great and stays cool. would like to see 4 Dimm slots instead of 2 but, it is a mAtx board so no complaints.

Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 3.1 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623I32100 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Prefers well for a dual core
- 7.1 on WEI
- Handles everything that has been thrown at it

Cons: - There is a very slight speed decrease when running multiple applications at once see other thoughts
- Not a K series

Other Thoughts: I purchased this processor for my girlfriend, she wanted to do some gaming, and basic tasks. I am a mechanical engineer, decided to test Solidworks, and CAD on it. While running SolidWorks and doing some other tasks, iTunes, Firefox etc. You can notice a slight decrease in performance. Granted this is not enough to warrant a -1 Egg because it is just a dual core processor. For the price, and what it can do its great. She loves it and couldn't be happier which is all that matters. I still don't think the i5/i7 K series are really warrant the extra $100+ but, that is just me. For a budget build spending a grand total of $350 on the entire setup I couldn't ask for a better machine.

- i3 2100
- ASRock H61/U3S3

- Samsung DVD+R
- WD 320 Caviar Blue Drive
- Sunbeam Transformer Case
- Rosewill 550W PSU
- MSI 9800 GT (It was laying around might as well put it to use?)
