Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard– Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00381900-R3U1)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Gotta love the tactile! Blues are just right for me as I don't live with anyone and I can type as loud as I want. It might be a con for those with other people around. But this KB is all about not compromising. Who buys a mechanical and doesn't know it can be loud? Backlighting is bright, and adjustable to a muted glow that almost looks like green paint. Keys are easy to remove for cleaning. Excellent build quality. Pass throughs for Audio and USB are nice. I've spilled beer on mine TWICE and just unplugged it and let it dry both times and it still works perfectly! Braided cable is a huge plus. Come to mechanical country and forget your shameful rubber dome past!

Cons: I kind of wish they had used RGB LEDS, as not everyone has a green theme. No light on FN key, and no etching for dual purpose keys. And yeah, it's bit of an investment.

Other Thoughts: If you spend a good amount of time on your PC, a mechanical KB is really something you should look into. It's just so much more comfortable and satisfying in a way that kind of defies description. Maybe the sound and tactile response gives some sort of psychological weight to the action of typing? Regardless, you won't regret the change, and the BWU13 is a great KB to make that change with. At least it has been for me. You will pay 5 times what a rubber dome KB costs, but if you spend that much time dealing with a KB, why not make it as good an experience as possible? You sleep 8 hours a night so you want a good bed. You spend lots of time on your computer so you want enjoyable ways of interacting with it!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 100352-3L 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs like a champ and OC's easily if you need it. The included TriXX works great.
I got this card for $210 with shipping. It's now $449 and out of stock!

Cons: Some games don't like to deal with any OC, but that's the games fault, not the cards.

Other Thoughts: Sorry if you missed out friends! The Egg had these cards cheap for about a month, and then the miners showed up.
I'm running Crysis3, FarCry3, BF4, Bioshock Infinite, Saint's Row 4...all maxed with 8xMSAA. Best money I ever spent.

OCZ Vertex 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Insane speed. I boot from POST to W7 in 25 seconds, and as soon as I see the desktop ALL my background progs are ready.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Supposedly the new Sandforce 2000 series controller has problems that result in BSOD's.
Hasn't happened to me.
This is a BOOT drive, not a gaming drive. It's for getting your OS running fast.
