Pc chips motherboards suck

Post by rovingcowboy » Fri Jan 23, 2015 9:49 pm

I say that title with knowledge of it being bad. others had said that company was not good, but I did not find that out until after I bought the board, now that was 2 to 3 years ago, and I just replaced it too. umm come to think of it I had troubles a year ago?

the first thing was the onboard video it got hot and started with the wavy lines on the monitor screen, so I replaced it with an video card, then the sound was messing up last month so I put an old sound blaster card in it.
now the motherboard it's self finally gave up. so I had to stick an old gigabyte board in the system, and it is just as old as the pc chips board but it was a hard core gamers board so it is still working where the pc chips is toasted.

maybe I was spoiled by the old win98 isa board that lasted 10 years. but I think 2 to 3 years for a board to last is a rip off.

Unfortunately, you can't expect with such low prices you get same level of development quality testing.

You can buy whole working new PC for $200 where you know taht we would not being able to buy CD burner for the same price (have one taht is still kicking)

Yeah that's what I have found out. I got that win7 for 600 good stuff but not room for more drivesin it then 1 and limited board but it is an msi board .

now that gigabytes board can go to win7 if needed it's using serial hd's should be fine for a long time now.
It has good on board audio and video but I have the better asus video card and the sound blaster in .
