This review is from: SteelSeries 61050 7H Headset
Pros: Great Sound (Great highs and mids). Bass isn't impressive but not bad. Comfortable with the cloth ear pads. Retractable mic design works well.
Cons: The build design on these phones is really bad. I've owned these phones for 2 years and I've had them fail twice (this last time was after the 1 year warranty and happened a few weeks ago). Both times the headphones failed at the connection between the left earcup and the middle bridge. The three part teardown idea was interesting but also makes these phones very error prone. I take very good care of my electronics and would imagine a person with a large skull would break these just by wearing them.
Another problem with the phones is that your gonna want to use the cloth material they come with rather then the leather. The reason for this is because the leather earcups get really hot, really quickly and you'll want to take them off within an hour or so.
The last gripe I have is that the mic is too quiet and I have to use a 10 db boost with it to be heard clearly in skype and vent. As you might expect this means I have a bit of static when I speak, which annoys some people.
Other Thoughts: You can do much better than these gaming headset wise in the same price range. As i said they lasted me for two years and they have been great as far as sound quality goes but they are very error prone.
Steel series did replace them for free and quickly the first time they died. Just don't let them convince you that the problem is the cord and not the headset.
Pros: 3 PCI 2.0 ports. Fairly cheap and does what it should. I used one of these to build a gaming computer with a FX 6350 processor and a 7870 XFX video card. 8 months later and I've had no problems.
Cons: None so far. This board doesn't SLI/Crossfire the newer cards but that's not an issue for me.
Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend this for budget gamers. You might get a DOA but that's a risk you take with about any motherboard that is under $120 it seems (mine was fine and has been used heavily). Contact ASRock and I'm sure they'll replace it if there's an issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD FX-6350 Vishera 6-Core 3.9 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD6350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: This thing handles anything I throw at it very well. Extremely well priced. Plays Planetside 2 and Battlefield 4 no problem. If you looking for a budget gaming processor this is what you want. Overclocked to 4.2 GHz no problem.
Cons: Stock heatsink works but doesn't cool the processor as much as I would like. The heatsink is also very loud (sounds like a 747 when intense gaming). Ordered this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 to fix the problem.READ FULL REVIEW
