This review is from: Dell P2314H Black 23" 8ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 250 cd/m2 1,000:1
Pros: Good all-around monitor. Decent factory calibration, even brightness, no noticeable backlight bleeding...
Also comes with a good stand and is somewhat stylish! Plus it's cheap and has an IPS panel.
Cons: Could be brighter.
My other monitor makes this one look a little washed out (my other monitor is much more expensive though!)
Other Thoughts: Satisfied with my purchase! Would recommend!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor BX80605I5750
Pros: Wow, after I built my computer I decided to O/C this cpu to see how much I could push it, and it sailed right past my expectations. Currently, I am running at 3.7ghz at stock voltage, and with Intel's Turbo Boost, it can hit 4.4ghz on a single core, completely stable! This is by far the best bang for your buck currently offered, at least in my eyes.
Cons: None really, but for whatever reason the base clock can't reach higher than 185 without major instability. Even higher voltages wont help. I think this may have to do with the integrated memory controller, but I am no expert on overclocking. Regardless, because the Turbo Boost affects only the multiplier, it can reach higher.
Other Thoughts: Mobo - Asus P7P55D PRO
CPU - core i5 750 @ 3.7ghz
RAM - Mushkin 1333mhz @ 1850mhz 7-9-9-25
GPU - ATI Radeon 5850 @ 825mhz core, 1125mhz mem
Pros: -Very fast, read and write speeds are about as advertised
-Awesome seek time, no more waiting for folders and files to appear
-bragging rights haha
-not a much room
Other Thoughts: I've always wanted a SSD ever since I heard about them and started doing some research on them, and finally decided to get one now that these drives have the indilinx controllers and cache. Very satisfied with my purchase, only docked one egg because of the price / GB ratio. crazy!READ FULL REVIEW
