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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
