PSU for first computer build
Pros: Has more than enough power for most gaming systems. Fair price. Looks pretty good. Really quiet. LOTS of connectors. Mesh sleeves on cables help keep them neat and protected.
Cons: The cables are all too long and are a little tough to manipulate into position.
Overall Review: Having a full tower would be better for this PSU because of the length and size of the cables, but this is an all around GREAT buy for just about any system!
Wolf King Warrior
Pros: Looks good. It makes it easier to get to most keys.
Cons: It has a red LED in the top right to show that it's on. It's WAY too bright and the only way to make it go off is to unplug it. There should be an on/off button. Almost ALL of the keys are portioned poorly. The keys aren't sensitive enough. It's missing the "Enter" key.
Overall Review: This isn't a bad game pad, but it's nothing special. It would take me a long time to get used to the key placement and I'm already quite efficient with normal keyboards. It is a little bigger than it seems in the pictures but I wouldn't care how big it is if it improved my game play.
Good imitation, but not the real thing.
Pros: The cooling system works great, I thought it would be cheap and ineffective, but it works great. It fits my hand fairly well. The joysticks feel solid and aren't too sensitive which is a big deal for me. Price is reasonable.
Cons: Not that this has anything to do with my rating because I don't know who to blame, but the front of it has a bunch of scratches! It's too small and light for me. I like big, solid controllers.
Overall Review: There wasn't really anything wrong with this product(aside from the scratches), it just doesn't fit my taste the way I had hoped. It is smaller than it looks in the picture.
Video Card for first computer build
Pros: It's not a bad card, pretty fast for being a 7 series card. It was a decent price. It came with plenty of software including a game I haven't tried yet.
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: I think it over heated yesterday, but I was running it pretty hard for a almost a few hours straight. I think getting a new heatsink and fan for any video card would be a good idea, but I can't verify yet that it was this card that was overheating. It may have been the RAM or CPU. Also, it seemed a bit big, but this is my first time buying and building a computer, so I don't know how big these things usually are.
RAM for first computer build
Pros: Decent price. Works fine. Has nice LEDs on the top that shows how hard it's working.
Overall Review: There's not really anything wrong with the stick I have, but 512MB just isn't enough these days to play any good games. I'm upgrading to 1GB, but I'm sticking with Corsair XMS because they seem to be the best.
CD Burner for first computer build
Pros: It looks good being black, sitting in my Cooler Master Mystique. Decent price.
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: It's still too early to tell whether or not this is a great product because it could fail me in the future. It seems to be fine, but if it acts up any time soon, I will repost my rating.
