MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This is a great motherboard. Handles everything I needed, ram, cpu, etc. I really like MSI's new bios. It is very tidy, and easy to use. Very easy to choose between legacy and UEFI setups. Support for all the modern stuff, big HDD, usb3, etc..

Cons: I did not like the layout of this board as much as its predecessor, the 890fx-gd70. I upgraded directly from one to the other, and was disappointed that I had to change some of my layout.

Other Thoughts: I was terribly disappointed that they changed the layout of the PCI-E slots. You technically still can use this board for four video cards, but you must get risers and move them off the motherboard. I know this is good practice anyhow when you have the big fat gaming cards, but I am usually using FirePro single slot cards, all separate, not in crossfire. Technically, there is still room for them, but i liked how much room they had to breathe on the old board. Still, all in all a very very solid motherboard. Overall I am very happy with it.

CORSAIR RM Series RM1000 1000W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Just pulling it from the box, I could feel the quality of the unit. I read some other reviews complaining about the cables, but this is one of my favorite aspects of this PS. The cables are a bit stiff, but that just means that once you shape them where you want them, THEY STAY. I had no trouble getting these to where I needed them to go. I love the look of them coming up out of the cable management, they are very tech/industrial looking. And once you fold these babies into a tiny cable management cavity, you will never want to deal with tubes/sleeves ever again. With a Sabertooth and Crossfired 280x's, it is an awesome look. I loved that they were flat, and I didn't mind the daisy chained PCI-E connections, I think they are cleaner looking. Even when the fan is running, this thing is dead silent. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this for the price. Corsair brand, 1000 watts, 200 bucks? I love it.

Cons: None
