Intel Celeron G1610 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 2.6 GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637G1610 Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought it for a basement build for internet surfing / youtube streaming and 1080p XBMC use. Thought of going with i3 or at least G2020, but I'm glad I went with this. More than enough power, including 1080p decoding with H10 codec or whatnot. I've played around with all these gadgets and streaming stuff - nothing beats real pc for its functionality and usability.

Cons: Stock cooler, while nice - I am not too fond of the mounting mechanism. Somehow it doesn't give me any assurance...

4 out of 5 eggs Great HTPC keyboard 08/28/2013

This review is from: Logitech K400 2.4GHz Wireless Touch Keyboard

Pros: Great little keyboard for light HTPC use. Decent range, and good typability without being too large for a HTPC keyboard. Integrated multi-touch pad is nice. Solid performance considering its price - Have had several Logitech keyboards and this one is one of my favorite in terms of its value.

Cons: Keyboard layout is little funky on directional keys. Well, having full sized directional keys are nice, but not at the sacrifice of right side shift key - that I keep pressing "up" arrow when I intend to press right Shift.

Also the software doesn't allow to configure what "home" button do

ASUS P9X79 PRO LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very versatile mb. ASUS's pro line, always feel right for the money and feature wise - no nonsense features for everyday user like myself. Some high end boards only have 4 memory slots (probably due to high OC purpose) - and some have non PCI-E (not 3.0 - but old PCI-E 1.0) - but this boards have all the features I could ask for.

With Ivy Bridge E coming out, (and probably will be compatible with this board) - I'll be all set for next few years.

Cons: pro line packaging feels little cheaper than other premium X series boards.
