5 out of 5 eggs The best 1tb internal hard drive you can buy for a good price. 08/09/2016

This review is from: WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: Reliable like a Toyota Camry

Cons: Packaging could be a little better, but for 50 bucks, what you gonna do?

Other Thoughts: I've bought this hard drive four times for four different builds, and they are still going strong. For the price, you can't go wrong. This is definitely a staple for any build not including a SSD.

READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Small, case, can fit in any case
Cheap (didn't get it on Newegg, but I want everyone to know it's good)
6-Pin Adapter, which should allow a 500w power supply to do okay for it
Plays Crysis at ultra pretty dang good
Very Silent, even at high load

Cons: Looks can be deceiving, because this card is small. Made me think it wouldn't hack it against my roommate's 1070, but it won't beat that.
Doesn't light up

Other Thoughts: This is the best 1060 you can buy. Why is that?, because most Zotacs have 4 or more stars behind them. This is the first graphics card I've bought. I wanted the 1070 but couldn't afford it, very happy on this purchase. Plays Crysis very well with skips or lag. It doesn't take a lot of power to run this card, which is good for those wanting to keep it under a grand.

4 out of 5 eggs First Case for a Novice Builder 08/09/2016

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V31 CA-1C8-00M1WN-00 Black ATX Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of space for water cooling, fans, and giant graphics cards. Giant Window, nice magnetic dust filters on front, top, and bottom. Removable HDD cages and versatile options

Cons: It's 60 bucks, what do you expect. It does the job, but would like it to be a full tower for that price.

Other Thoughts: This is first build, and after researching cases for about two months, this was the right move.
Build:
Intel Core I5-6600K
Corsair H55 Water Cooler
Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4 2133
Western Digital WD10EZEX
Zotac AMP! GTX 1060
EVGA 750W B1 (oh wait that broke, using a Kingwin 1200w PSU, that is seven years old
(4) Corsair AF140 White LED Fans
Asus Z-170A MOBO
Asus VP228H 21.5" 1080p Monitor
