ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

3 out of 5 eggs Great board, but doesn't work with approved Dual Graphics Combos 01/12/2013

This review is from: ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great board performance-wise, lots of ports and features for building a fairly high-end machine for an affordable price.

Cons: I bought this board, in part, to be able to use it for Dual Graphics with my A10-5800k trinity and Radeon HD 6670 graphics card, because AMD approves this combo for dual graphics. This board supports dual graphics, but for some reason (that I can't comprehend) does not support dual graphics between the A10 and the 6670, even though this is the ONLY combination that AMD strongly recommends for the A10.

Other Thoughts: While I'm satisfied with the board's versatility and with the fact that both of my graphics cards can render separate things on separate screens at the same time, I bought this board in combo with an A10 Trinity under the impression that the board would provide full support for Dual Graphics, especially for its highest end processor. It does not. For this reason, I think this board deserves 3 eggs. Otherwise, I'd give it a 5.

Pros: Great board for the price. Paired it with an A10 Trinity processor, an 8 gig stick of ddr3 1600 and a low profile Radeon 6670. Runs like clockwork in an HTPC case with a 450 watt power supply. Tons of connectors for everything you might want for such a small board. Great support website with all the latest drivers and BIOS updates. Using X mode overclocking with the board i took the processor from 3.8 to 4.2ghz air cooled without any trouble at all.

Cons: The only issue I've run into is trying to get the Dual Graphics feature to become an option in Windows. Even after a BIOS update and a number of tweaks I am unable to get Dual Graphics to work. However Surround View works fine; I can get both the APU and the GPU to output to monitors simultaneously. I just can't get them to work together as one. Not sure that this is the fault of the board, still trying to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: Great board, especially for the money and the form factor. I'm very satisfied with this product.

OCZ Vertex 3 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent price and performance 10/27/2012

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) VTX3-25SAT3-120G

Pros: Bought this baby to run the primary operating system in my desktop. Great life choice. Windows 8 and Linux Mint both fly on this thing. Just big enough that you can use it as a primary hard drive so long as you have an external or a second HDD for your music and movie collection.

Cons: Can't think of a single one.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a hard drive that will boost the speed of your computer without breaking the bank, go with this! Great if you want your computer to boot up quickly and you have a few hefty programs/apps that would benefit from a very fast hard drive.

Don't buy something like this if you're just looking for storage...a standard HDD will give you more bang for your buck if you're looking for something to store your music and movies.
