Pros: This is a good PSU, I don't know why the posters above say that it only can power 3 cards. I run 4x R9 290 GPUs with this and I have all 4 of the cards overclocked to 1000/1500 when mining. I have 1 GPU on the MB and 3x GPUs on PCI Riser cables with Molex connectors to give it extra power.
Cons: The fan makes a clicking noise when starting up. It isn't fully modular.
Overall Review: MSI 990FXA-GD80 Motherboard 2x Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 RAM AMD FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz CPU 120 GB Samsung SSD
Pros: Fast, efficient, more than you need for the average person. If you play even high intensity games, this is more than enough. This cpu will be good 2 years from now and still running anything you throw at it without a hiccup.
Cons: First one was DOA and I had to contact Intel for replacement. They took longer than anticipated to get all the info for me to ship back the faulty cpu. First time I ran into a problem where it was a DOA product from Intel. This is my third Intel processor and I am still using a i5-2500K on another system which still runs great. Intel was pretty good about the replacement policy, only downside was I had to pay for shipping which was $12 to ship back the defective cpu.
Overall Review: I use AMD and Intel, I have over 5 computers and I would suggest that this CPU only if you do more than just intense gaming. I am a fan of both the cpu manufacturers but the best bang for your buck is with AMD.
