I purchased my Asus + AMD bundle a few months ago and absolutely love them! The Asus motherboard is a beacon of quality and arrived in unimaginable shape. Since it's the M4A88T-M I could use my M-technology efficient Studio Pro software for recording guitar tracks. The AMD Phenom II is an amazing processor. Even with 6 cores it runs much cooler than other CPU's and provides me with the raw power I need for anything! Gaming, browsing, video rendering, anything! This bundle can handle it.
