CM Storm QuickFire XT - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Very high build quality
-Perfect key resistance (Cherry MX Brown)
-Just the right amount of 'click' sound
-Plenty long braided USB cable
-Useful Windows key lockout function

Cons: Wasn't available as a backlit variant?

Other Thoughts: This was my very first experience with a mechanical keyboard, as i've used standard ones my whole life. My friends finally convinced me to make the switch, so it was just down to doing some research and seeing what Cherry MX switch type I would prefer and whatnot. I'm glad I went with the Brown, this thing is WELL worth the ~$85 I spent back when it was on sale. I'm not all about the flashy full-fledged keyboards with all the MMO hotkey garbage. I just wanted a full-sized standard keyboard comparable to my previous wireless Logitech keyboard, and this thing perfectly fits the bill. This thing WILL NOT disappoint, I promise you.

XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Plays most my games at max or near max settings
-Runs cool: sits at right around 26C idle and the highest I seen while running games was around 58C
-Sexy looking card, to say the least
-Side-port PCI-E power plugs for easy connectivity; great for people like me with a mid-tower that the card BARELY fits in.

Cons: I'm not sure if it is defective or what, but I cannot do ANY sort of serious O.C. settings in the VISION control center with this. The slider allows me to go up to 1400MHz, but if i push it more than maybe 1200, my computer INSTA-restarts the moment I try to launch any game... It's obviously not an overheat issue, as I mentioned above this card runs extremely efficient. I also tried upping the Power slider to compensate for the extra GPU clock, but same result. This is rediculous as I bought this card based on the reviews of people saying "easy o/c 1400MHz no problem" and yet It struggles with 1200... not very happy at all about it

Other Thoughts: It's massive. I was almost histarical at how much bigger this 7870 was over my 6770s.

Rosewill RNX-N250PCe - Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, Up to 300 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Wonderful little adapter. Was literally plug-n-play; did not need the driver disc, Windows 7 detected and installed automatically upon post-install bootup. Bought this to compliment my Rosewill RNX-N4PS wireless-N router :) I didn't particularly NEED this, but after going to a LAN with some friends and being the only one tied down via ethernet, I figured i'd pick one up just incase. And I'm glad I did! Highly recommend this!!

Cons: None that I can come up with!

Other Thoughts: The external antennas are KIND of cumbersome for my particular case/mobo layout (I have to have them both parallel and tilted at a slight angle to offset some USB plugs that are in use), but that's something personal that not everyone is gonna experience, so I wasn't gonna dock an egg for that.
