GIGABYTE GA-F2A78M-HD2 (rev. 3.0) FM2+ AMD A78 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - So far, it seems to be the usual Gigabyte quality
- Slightly smaller dimensions for a micro-ATX board, at least compared to the Zotac micro-ATX board it replaced. Not at all a problem for fitting into my nMEDIAPC 1000B HTPC case -- even better actually to have some room freed up.

Cons: - None so far.

Other Thoughts: - Note that this is a fairly minimalist mobo as far as micro-ATX boards go. For example, only two memory slots.
Using with:
- AMD A6 6400K CPU.
- Noctua NH-L9a CPU cooler.
- nMEDIA PC 1000B HTPC case.
- HyperX 8GB KHX1600C9D3LK2/8GX memory

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: -Gigabyte quality.
-Gigabyte reliability.
-Plenty of features and expandability.

Cons: -SATA ports face horizontally. This isn't a significant con though, as it really just forces you to get a bit more creative with your cable management.

Other Thoughts: May not have all the latest fads packed in, but has a lot of great up-to-date features with typical Gigabyte reliability and quality.

GIGABYTE GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) DirectX 11 GV-N430OC-1GL 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is a great little card and with the rebate it's an even greater deal. Have a secondary PC made up of older parts (although not too shabby) and don't want to put a lot of money into it. Just plan to surf the web, play some non-resource intensive games, and watch Netflix/Youtube. Before this card, both YouTube and Netflix video was choppy. After this card, they both run as smooth as the net connection will allow. The card comes nicely protected with plastic caps over all the i/o parts.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Always been a big fan of Gigabyte motherboards and now will always consider their video cards.
