Pros: Low Power consumption - Doesn't have to plug into your PSU, it gets its power from the Motherboard.
Quiet - Haven't noticed any sound coming from it, even under load. (When a cable droops onto the fan thats a different story but not the card's fault)
Can run most/all games at mid-high settings - GTA5, Watch_Dogs, Mass Effect 3 and a bunch of other games I've played manage high 40-50 fps running this card with two monitors. I'm sure with one monitor you could get 60fps in more games.
Cons: Not extremely powerful - This is pretty much an entry level card for gaming. Its not going to max our Crysis 3, or get anywhere close.
No SLI - Can't have two of these in SLI, although for an entry level gamer, SLI probably isn't in their scope
Pin holes to mount to case don't line up for me - Extremely minor thing, but the pin holes that are supposed to hold the card to the back of the case don't line up with the case I have. This occasionally causes my second monitor to lose signal, but a slight push fixes it.
Other Thoughts: Good entry level gaming cardREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries 64225 6Gv2 Keyboard
Pros: Durable - This thing is freaking solid. If you have a habit of punching your keyboard after your noob teammates lose the game for you, this one can take the hit.
Cherry MX Black Switches - These switches take marginally more force to press, reducing accidental presses and keeping fingers strong
Simple - No flashy lights or touch screens or any of that nonsense.
Cons: Simple - No flashy lights or touch screens or any of that nonsense. For the price tag, you'd at least expect macro keys
Size - Others have complained about the size, and it did take a while to get used to the keys being closer together. Constantly swapping between this keyboard and a laptop keyboard has me making typos fairly often.
Price - Pretty pricey for what it has. Durable is good, but for that king of price tag you'd at least expect a few macro keys or something.
Other Thoughts: If you are going to abuse the hell out of this keyboard, and don't really care about macro keys or backlights, wait for a sale and buy this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G27 (941-000045) Racing Wheel
Pros: High quality materials (Leather feels great, stainless steel nice and shiny.
Simple installation (Plugged it in, ran the logitech controller detection program and drivers were installed immediately)
Force Feedback is amazing
Pedals have a good weight to them, and the springs inside provide just enough counter-pressure when breaking/accelerating ingame
So many buttons!
Cons: The clamps that hold the wheel and shifter to your desk are not very good. The wheel and shifted slipped off the desk under moderate use. They are made of plastic, so more is left to be desired. (However there are screw holes for bracketing it into your desk/gaming seat).
Cables everywhere! There are four seperate cables coming out of the back of the wheel (2 to shifter/pedals, 1 to power and 1 to use). Be ready to break out the zip ties
Other Thoughts: One egg off for the clamps issue, but otherwise this is a great racing wheel controller and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to pick one up.
Also, as of the 14th of August, 2014, here are a few games I tested for compatability:
