Genius GX-Gaming Gila Black 12 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired 8200 dpi MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like the mouse layout and design. And it feels solid.

Cons: The M1 button is faulty on my mouse. That is on the very top left of the face of the mouse. It will work, sometimes, if I mash the hell out of it.

I never got the software to work well. It never seems to save profiles to onboard memory.

Also, everything is macros when programming keys. I had a logitech G-310 (I think) that let you map buttons to keystrokes.

Other Thoughts: I still use it. I just dont map anything to that key. I have worked around the macro issue. But I am in the market for a new mouse, probably a logitech.

Logitech G300 Black/Gray 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Just the right amount of extra buttons for mmo play. The spacing of the buttons around the mouse and their feel make it easy to know which one I am hitting, and I can do it quickly.

All the buttons are programmable to keystroke (not macro), including the one that defaults to dpi switching.

I am happy they didn't use thumb buttons. Those always messed me up before, forcing me to squeeze the mouse sideways. I like being able to push down on every button.

I like the rubber texture on the sides and the matte texture for the fingers. It has a concave feel on top, so each finger fits into a groove. Real comfortable for me.

Cons: On the light side, compared to weighted or battery operated mice, but it feels fine to me. Easier to pick up and relocate on the fly.

No disk in the box, so you have to download the programming software. So sucks for the .0001% of the population who doesn't use the internet. But then again, they wouldn't be reading this either!

Other Thoughts: I have big hands (for real like size 13+ ring finger) and I guess I like claw grip. I don't think I have seen a mouse I could palm without my fingertips completely covering the mouse and touching the desk on the front side.

I got it for SWTOR (nickname is my toon) and is helping me out in warfronts greatly. (Left hand spamming damage attacks, right hand for stuns, guards, cc breakers, etc.

Oh and the strips of color are cool. There are 7 to choose from, or just off. If you are feeling really nerdy, you can change it to match your lightsaber color. (Not that I would ever do that, but green looks pretty good.)

XFX Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 HD-687A-ZNFC 1GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plays everything really well so far (Shogun 2, and all the other Steam freebies like Champions Online and Team Fortress 2). I also ran the Unigene Heaven benchmark and it looked great.

Not really loud at all, I can't hear it over my fish tank and refrigerator.

Runs on my Antec NeoEco 400 watt psu, despite the box's recommendation of 500 watt. I read so many reviews and PSU calculators and determined that I had more than enough juice in my system to run it.

Cons: Big and thick. If I ever want to install a second one I am going to have to evaluate if it will fit. (at that point I will need a bigger PSU, I know)

I had to buy a molex to pci express adapter because it requires 2 pci-e power lines. The adapter was low quality (bought at newegg for 4.49) and really didn't want to fit. The antec native pci-e line slid in easily.

NO sexy lady graphic on the card. I thought all the best cards came with a sexy lady holding a sword or machine gun or both.

Other Thoughts: This was the final piece for my first build:

Intel I-5 2400 processor (bought from Fry's)
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 mobo (newegg)
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (newegg)
Antec NEO ECO 400W 80+ (newegg)
Hitachi 1TB 7200rpm hard drive (fry's)
HP DVD writer (best buy)
My old off brand 24" monitor
Some Old mid tower I got from a friend
