Description

Here is a small Intel Pentium G3220 3.0 GHz HTPC computer build I created to stream video. I also use this small form fact PC to educate our children as they are home schooled. It run Windows 7 Home 64-bit because it is more compatible with old educational software.

Part Reviews

CPU

This is a pretty fast budget dual-core CPU that is highly overclock-able even with the stock cooler.

Memory

As always G.Skill make awesome memory. It is stable and work very well.

Case

A great Micro-ATX tower for the price. I has a great look and looks quite stylish. The only issue I have is there is very little room for cable management. It also feels a little then but well seems quite sturdy. I would still recommend this as a good case to do a budget build.

Does this motherboard's BIOS have UEFI? (or a graphical BIOS in layman's terms)

I had the CPU and power supply already. So basically this is a system build from parts I had other than the CPU and motherboard which I got on a sweet bundle deal.

LOL!! yeah I will no longer purchase Corsair power supply as this is my 2nd replacement. AMD APU's I used in the past and are excellent but this came as a bundle and had the GPU already.
