MSI  R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX 256-Bit  GDDR5  PCI Express 3.0 x16  HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Powerful card, runs most games on max/ultra settings no problem... no excess heat, no fan screaming or whining. This thing is perfect for my mini itx build. It fits inside my small case, and has no downsides. Really solid build quality also; I had a 260X before this that was loud, not very playable on high resolution or settings. It was no-good compared to this thing. This card weighs almost twice as much as the last one, and that's because of the thick metal heatsink, backplate, and superior fan. Great job MSI.

Cons: It has a dragon, that you might not like... Also, as another reviewer said, its not blue (?)... Who cares this thing is solid.

Other Thoughts: Recommend, two thumbs up

MSI A88XI AC FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This board was a nice upgrade from my previous Mini-ITX for my Athlon 760k. I have found it incredibly easy to overclock and I am totally satisfied with this board. Hesitant at first, because I have never owned an MSI board before, but this thing is a great success. Quality part.

Cons: All the software suites these things come with are very hit or (in most cases) miss.

Other Thoughts: They should make a cheaper version with no built-in WiFi module. In fact... Not enough vareity of good Mini-ITX boards out there period. I had the choice between this and an ASRock one, and maybe a couple others I don't remember.
Tangent: I went with the ASRock first. Nothing wrong with it, took a little extra to set up and then figure out, and then when I broke the PCI-E slot trying to replace the GPU (complete user idiocy on my end, the old board is still good if I want to use an APU) I decided to try this one out. A bit of a gamble at that point, but I'm really satisfied with the outcome.

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-8GAB

Pros: This was the only RAM that would fit in my mini-ITX case with any capable CPU heatsink. No giant fins on top, and heat is no where near an issue at with these... There is no sacrifice in choosing these and I wish every stick of RAM would have low heatsinks and good specs like these.

Cons: RAM is more expensive than when it was really cheap. This is no exception.

Other Thoughts: They're blue obviously. If you're building a color coded build this would be a thing.
