Pros: Excellent RAM, but why did it go from being one of the cheapest to one of the most expensive? $29 to $49. I mean, it's decent RAM, but now there's no reason to pick it over the more heard-of brands hovering around $36 that are now cheaper.
Cons: Used to be least expensive, now most expensive.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend to a friend if the price dropped again. So far mine have been really reliable, and they fit snugly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Pros: I love this OS so much. As a kid I was a 98 user. Grew up with XP, and for a couple years I had a computer that used Vista, which was awful. Windows 7 is so amazing. Get this one, don't get the Home version.
OEM means it'll only install on one machine ever, but that's all I needed. I would highly recommend getting this OEM version if you only need it for one machine, because it's so much cheaper.
Don't bother with 8. It's just Windows 7 with a few added issues and a "user-friendly" (see: dumbed-down) interface. I started building my new computer when Windows 8 was coming out. When a friend asked, "Are you going to wait until 8 comes out so you can get that OS with your new machine?" my only response was, "Why?"
No, get me 7. Only the best for my new baby. It is a worthy successor to XP.
Cons: Some games from the old days have compatibility issues, but you can usually find work-arounds for those. And it's to be expected anyway. Not everything new can work with everything old. If you think you'll be able to play your old games on XP Mode, think again. XP Mode is kinda pointless, since it's only really good for running old software of a non-game nature. So don't get your hopes up about it.
User Account Control is still there, like in Vista. But you can turn that off.
This review is from: Pixxo MO-R135U Wired 2000 dpi Thunderman Series DPI Switchable Gaming Mouse
Pros: I've had this mouse for half a year now, and it's still going strong. I play Starcraft II with this thing, which as you know involves a lot of clicking. A lot. So far, no issues. The buttons still work great. I love the feel of the mouse. I love the look. I love the two buttons on the side.
Would highly recommend this mouse. For the price it's perfect.
Cons: My hand sometimes gets a bit sweaty on it, but this probably reflects more on me than it does the mouse.
This is a bit nitpicky, but the cord is really thin. Thin cords can sometimes mean a short lifespan if the wires inside snap at all, such is the case with headphones. But so far mine's still alive, so I'm not taking an egg off for it or anything.
