ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 AMD 890GX Socket AM3 Motherboard Review

If you didn’t know, AMD and partners market and sell the “GX” and “G” series motherboards as economy boards.  They differ from the FX in that they have integrated graphics, but they are fully capable of running discrete video cards.  Though their graphics capabilities are more for HTPC and “surf the net and read email” people, the onboard VGA is getting better and will actually play a number of games at lower settings. Today I will be looking at one of ASUS’ new 890 GX motherboards, the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3.  This board is just bursting with new features, some we haven’t seen before, others we’ve seen on Asus’ Intel boards but not their AMD boards.  The chipset not only natively supports SATA 6Gb/s, it also has brand new integrated graphics, the Radeon HD 4290, which ATI says far surpasses the earlier HD 4200.  Will the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 pass the test?  Read on to see!

ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AMD 785G Motherboard Review

Some weeks back I looked at an mATX AMD 785G economy motherboard, supporting AM3 processors with DDR3 memory. It was a very impressive board with a very impressive price. Performance and stability easily met my expectations, and it will be the standard for any other 785G board that I get my grubby little hands on. Today I will be looking at a full ATX 785G motherboard by Asus, the M4A785TD-V EVO. It is definitely nicer than the mATX board I just mentioned, with much nicer cooling and CrossfireX support. It supports DDR3-1800 memory (requiring CPU overclocking). All this at a surprisingly economical price. Read on to check out the Asus M4A785TD-V EVO!

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition Socket AM3 Triple Core Processor Review

Today I will be looking at my first triple core processor, the AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition. It has been around about six months now, and the price has dropped a fair amount, making this CPU a definite consideration for an economy rig. With some careful shopping, using this processor and the motherboard I will be using for this review, you could easily build a rig less peripherals and operating system for under $600.
