Pros: Probably the best budget CPU you can buy. Think of it, you can play a lot of games at decent frame rates at 1080p, without a video card.
Overclocks easily. Just make sure to pair it up with some nice fast RAM. 1866 or above.
I currently have it overclocked to 3.9 GHz on air with a Cooler Master Vortex Plus. Idles around 36 and under heavy load the max has been 52.
Cons: Stock heatsink/fan is good for stock speeds. Get yourself a cheap Cooler Master and you'll be able to overclock at least to 3.4-3.5 easily.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT GAMMA Classic Series GAMA-001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very nicely built. Pricier PCs don't come with a black exterior, which in this case is a HUGE plus for this case. A lot of room for fans and the metal is way more sturdy then everyone else makes it to be. I wouldn't move it too much (LAN parties) since it is a bit flimsy, but for a stationary PC like most people have, this is perfect.
Mesh in front is easy to remove and sand (to paint it).
The LED in front is blue, but it's just a standard LED that you can cut and resolder a new one if you want a different color, in my case white.
Cons: Quite honestly, I can't think of any. For this price you really can't complain.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice keyboard. I went from a Comfort Curve 2000 to this after many years of loyal service, and I'm impressed. I was first weary of the "hill", but it was an extremely quick adaptation. Also is extremely quiet.
Cons: Extremely glossy. I actually took it apart and sanded it with 2000 grit paper to get it to a nice smooth finish that wasn't glossy, since it looked pretty disgusting with all the fingerprints on it.READ FULL REVIEW
