4.0 out of 5 stars Decent AM3 Motherboard, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had very few issues and had more than enough space for my components in my case

the only issue was a slight problem with surge protection. though this may be due to the power supply than the motherboard itself

Still a good OS for gaming

though if you want to upgrade your rig it may not be the best of ideas as it is tyed into one M-Board

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Price- Performance CPU, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as this was my first build i went with AMD due to them being a bit less sensative to damage than an intel one.

that said installation was easy enough, and i havnt had many problems with the CPU

only the most demanding games ever have any problems (Planetside) but thats pretty much any CPU theese days

5.0 out of 5 stars Great RAM for the price, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
8GB for the price i paid (33) was an amazing deal

even for the current price the ram is brilliant, have had no problems with running out of memory

note however your motherboard may restrict the speed of the RAM to 1333 MHz

the DPI settings are very easy to configure

would recommend a good mouse mat to go with it (same with any decent mouse as well

The sound quality is fairly reasonable with a fairly good quality microphone and for the price it is great

the folding earpieces are a handy storage feature

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent power supply for the price, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have occasionally had issues with this PSU.
But that may be to do with the dodgy electrics in the place i was staying
fortunately the motherboard stopped it damaging anything or it may just be the motherboard being over sensitive

would personally recommend buying a better one if you have the money
