Pros: Very good card. Expensive, but you get what you pay for. It is replacing a GTX 680 and I'm noticing about twice the frame rates as with the 680. It's a little bit quieter than my 680 as well.
Cons: Only one DVI. I had to buy two DisplayPort to DVI cables to do the quad monitor setup I was wanting to do.
Other Thoughts: If you are upgrading from and older video card and using the same video card you might have to upgrade the BIOS. I have a GA-Z77X-UD5H and I needed to upgrade the BIOS. When I originally put it in it wouldn't pass POST. So I called EVGA just to verify they didn't have any problems with any Gigabyte boards and he informed me I might have to upgrade my BIOS and if the problem was not resolved I'd have to RMA it. So I go to Gigabyte's website and download the BIOS update. FYI you can't use the flasher tool that downloads with it....it can only be ran on a 32 bit OS. You can go to Gigabyte's website and download @BIOS to flash it. Reinstalled the new card and the machine booted like a champ.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries H Circumaural Wireless Headset
Pros: The sound quality on these is amazing. These have the furthest range on a wireless headset I've ever had, and I've owned the Soundblaster World of Warcraft Wireless headset, Logitech G930, and Creative soundbaster EVO bluetooth. None of them compare with the Wireless H. Another bonus....BATTERY LIFE. These will last you 15+ hrs per battery and it has two. The transceiver also serves as the charger as well so you always have a fully charged battery. It does have an emergency power out if both batteries are dead too which is nice. Its simple to connect, you don't have to pair it with anything, it just works. Also like the LED indicator on the telescopic mic to indicate that the mic is muted.
Cons: Price. This will set you back $300 but its well worth it if you can afford it.
Other Thoughts: I haven't really messed with the sound mixing settings much but it's got a few presets that are pretty nice. I've just been using the stock setting and I was blown away by the sound quality. It multiple outputs, so you can hook it up to an XBox Playstation and or PC including optical if you want to hook it up to a stereo reciever. Over all a great headset and would recommend it to anyone will to spend the money on it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've got two of these bad boys hooked up to my rig. These are very high quality monitors. No issues so far and I've had the first one for almost a year now. Also they are very light weight and easy to carry around.
Cons: HDMI only. I had to buy HDMI to DVI for each monitor. Other than that no issues at all.
Other Thoughts: Rig specs: i7 920, EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366, 12GB RAM, EVGA GTX 570READ FULL REVIEW
