Toshiba Q Series Pro 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, 128 is better than 120 even if you sacrifice a little speed.
128gb feels downright spacious after using a tablet with 64gb for a year.

Cons: could come with accessories but at this price point I'll let it pass.

Other Thoughts: Build quality is fine.
Speed is excellent.

Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model BLS8G3D1339DS1S00
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Overclocks to 1600 no problem so don't let the 1333 speed scare you.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Could still be cheaper but that will come with time.

ASUS H81M-A LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Chose this motherboard looking for something barebones. Has everything I need for a cheap gaming build and nothing else.

Audio drivers allow you to use the line in and microphone port for out puts to a 5.1 audio system.

Cons: First one came DOA
Asus support was terrible. an hour on the phone sitting on hold before I gave up and used their live chat. Were they only troubleshooting advice I got was make sure everything is plugged in before they ended the session and left me to fill out a survey. I filled out the survey marking that my problem was not resolved and that I was dissatisfied with the support provided put in my email expecting a response which they couldn't be bothered to send. So I had to RMA it through Newegg.
Pcie is 1.1
Bad Support experience means I don't recommend this to anyone.

Other Thoughts: Build
Core i5-4570
GeForce GTX 660
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 1333 oc to 1600
Toshiba Q Series 128gb ssd
IN WIN Dragon Slayer case

The pcie slot is version 1.1 which has excellent comparability with pcie 2.0 and pcie 3.0. the benchmarks put my scores in the same level as those using motherboards with pcie 3.0 the pcie1.1 is not a bottleneck for any video card that would commonly be paired with this motherboard. People don't pair barebones mother boards with video cards that cost over five hundred dollars.
