This review is from: Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset
Pros: Great sound. High dynamic range, crystal clear sound with heavy, thumping bass. The soundstage is pretty good as well. These are fantastic for watching movies, listening to many different kinds of music and especially gaming (more in notes). The build quality is quite solid, and they feel like they will last a long time. The cord is very long, this is either a pro or con depending on your PC setup. And above all, fantastic price for this great sound quality.
Cons: Build quality, while strong, is somewhat uncomfortable. I often readjust my headphones while gaming and take breaks altogether due to the fabric used in the earcups and cushion in the top. It is comparable to the fabric inside a swimsuit. For a 3-5 hour gaming session, though, you start to not notice it. Volume control on the cable is weirdly far along the cable from the headset, I just leave it sitting on my desk. The earcups rotate inwards, opposite to most headphones I have used which rotate out wards and it took some getting used to. You might want to mess with the EQ a bit. Also mine were shipped cracked.
Other Thoughts: Overall fantastic sound quality for the price. While fantastic for music listening, these headphones are by far intended for gaming and at their best when playing game audio. It's addicting to listen to songs with heavy bass, but that can often drain some of the fidelity of the music, so I would mess with your EQ first and also check out music with more dynamic range. BIGGEST CON: if you don't live alone, others will want to murder you for never, ever hearing when they call your name, even if the volume's low. Keep your phone in front of you when you game, screen up. Enjoy the headphones, I love them!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Blade ATX-298WW Black/White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is good for a first build. It's pretty, It has enough room for everything, a cool window so you can watch your internal components as they work, and great support for cooling. A nice silent fan is included in the back. Very durable and well built with very satisfying front panel buttons.
Cons: Could be much flashier. When all's said and done, there's not much room in here. Cable management will also be very hard and it's inevitable that you'll just leave a big bundle of cables sitting at the bottom. Only comes with enough drive bay clips to hold two of each kind.
Other Thoughts: Great case for a first build, working fine for mine. Make sure you have a big desk though.
Less than a millimeter's clearance for a tall fan like the Hyper 212. Be careful with the measurements.
Pros: Awesome card, can run all last-gen games at 60+ FPS, current-gen games It runs fine as well although the only one I have is AC4 and that particular game is a terribly optimized port. You can still run it fine though and most other games will probably run at 60 fps, at least for the first half of this generation. Two big beautiful, silent fans will never let this card overheat and it looks pretty sexy as well.
Other Thoughts: You might want to upgrade or get SLI about halfway through this generation.READ FULL REVIEW
