MSI R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5 Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Best card I've ever owned. OCs like a beast, handles everything, this card is 2.5 years old and will last me at least another year easily. Can still hang with the latest R9 cards from AMD. Looks good in any case. Beta drivers from AMD are always stable.

Cons: Check out the temps in a demanding game. If they seem high, take the card back out and change the thermal paste. I replaced it with Arctic Silver 5 and now it runs quietly at 70C in most games. Just be sure to have some of your favorite non-conductive thermal paste on hand in case you need it. You never know how good these companies are when it comes to applying it. You're best off doing it yourself.

Other Thoughts: Other than the little snafu with the cooler, I couldn't be happier. I recommend installing MSI Afterburner, as well as programs like HWMonitor and GPU-Z. Given the age of the card, you might want to step up to the R9 series at this point. But this card is legendary for sure.

Logitech G400s 910-003589 8 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great successor to legendary MX518 05/17/2014

This review is from: Logitech G400s 910-003589 8 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: The ergonomics are identical to the MX518 and G400. In fact I think the shells can even be swapped. The scroll wheel is the same or improved, not sure. The best improvement is the new plastic. It just feels nicer on my skin and is supposedly hydrophobic. The mouse movement feels just right - very smooth and accurate. And I'm not sure, but I think the G400s might be lighter, which is absolutely a good thing for gaming.

Cons: While the scroll wheel does feel okay, it is cheap. I wish Logitech had redesigned it to make it flat and textured like the G700's. It's pretty bad that 3 versions of this mouse all have the same cheap scroll wheel.

Other Thoughts: Best gaming mouse I've ever used. If you loved the MX518, you'll love this one too.

CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue Switches
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: + Tenkeyless with standard layout
+ Comes with red WASD keys + key remover
+ Cherry MX switches

Cons: - Lacks USB hub
- Blue switches are loud
- No wrist rest (nor is one available from CM)

Other Thoughts: Excellent keyboard but a USB hub would have been nice.
