(I know the PSU+Case is usually not the best idea but for the budget and good reviews on it I will give it a shot.)

Question though, what do all the LE, LX Plus, CSM letters stand for or mean? Did a lot of forum searching and googling and came up with nothing. Side by side specs are very minimal difference. The one I choose though had crossfire support. Just wondering if there is a specific way to tell the difference?

  1. Your list is empty - but the motherboard letters are just Asus specifications - one has a different set of features than the other one does.
  2. Ah okay, thanks for the clarification.

    Fixed the link..
  3. A Llano certainly isn't a bad CPU but don't expect it to be able to handle a lot of high CPU loads - if you can maybe up that to a A8-3870K that would be ideal but for $400 that isn't a bad build at all.
