ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good balance of features and MIR
Asus did send out a replacement board

Cons: Had to RMA to Asus due to video card issue with MB. The built in chip graphics would not work and several PCI-E video cards would not boot in the proper slot x16. Work around was to mount in the x8 slot instead. First time I ever had a MB fail. Had to pay shipping to get replacement. Took a couple of weeks due to xmas/NY holidays. Without extra parts to diagnose, would have been ugly (because even the CPU video option failed)

XFX GS250XYDFC GeForce GTS 250 512MB Core Edition 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It worked! In a Dell Vostros420 with E7400 which only has 350W PSU. Nvidia says 450W and XFX says 630W but it worked fine. Main issue is to check your 12V rail. Mine had 25A (300W) and Nvidia spec is 24A min. Rail2 only uses 5A for CPU so there is lots. I also ran a web applet to calc wattage but make sure you check the 12V rail as this is what is important

Cons: Big card but not problems other than losing a PCIe and PCI slot.

Other Thoughts: 127.00 is great price. Lots of people say the 9800GTX+ is the same card but is not! This only requires one 12V plug which matters (since my PSU only has one and you need to keep them indpendent for the 2). Also, I think it is smaller too.
