Pros: Plug and play, straight forward with no fancy stuff added (like macros and oddly shaped keys), aesthetically pleasing, GAMING-GRADE and possibly more responsive than my second generation Logitech G15, best keyboard to type on, built like a tank, smoothing the keys out doesn't ruin their appearance
Cons: Has Windows keys on it (use a credit card or ID to pop them off)
Other Thoughts: This was the first decent keyboard I owned before I said farewell to my 101 keyed board with sweat and blood stains (don't ask how that happened) all over it that. I would recommend this ANYONE whether your an "average" user, gamer, or whatever. It's an all-around good keyboard that works as well as it looks pretty. It's a shame Saitek's current Eclipse 2 and 3 don't look as pretty as this 1st generation one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They work as well as they look cool and move faster than most of my system. Heatsinks work well and are still low-profile enough to fit under a Cooler Master GeminII heatsink.
Other Thoughts: These RAM sticks along with my CPU and Motherboard are bottle-necked by my Seagate Barracuda hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A mean freakin' card at a mainstream price. You should be able max most of everything with this.
Cons: HUGE, uses two six pin connectors, Linux driver is a pain to install on Ubuntu (it's a freakin' run file that you have to stop your X Server and drop to root to install) maybe the heatsink
Other Thoughts: Being HUGE and using a lot of power comes with the high-end graphics territory. With the exception of stuff that has serious compatibility issues with WINE (I run Linux NOT Windows), I'm able to max out pretty much everything I throw at this. I also slapped on a Sparkle Calbre Heatsink since I didn't trust the stock one. DO NOT use the driver provided by Ubuntu, it does not work.
