Ultimate

ASUS DirectCU II Radeon R9 280 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280-DC2T-3GD5
ASUS DirectCU II Radeon R9 280 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280-DC2T-3GD5

Pros: It's quiet, awesome looking, stays cooler than my last graphic card, has plenty of stream processors, is awesome in general. Plays all the games I own on the highest resolution with no issues whatsoever. It's righteous.

Cons: cannot share carnal knowledge with this card

Overall Review: I bought this on a well-known internet shopping site used for $180 because this site was out of stock for a good long time. I would definitely buy it for the price listed, though.

Righteous Motherboard

ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

Pros: Plenty of slots to insert whatever I want to, asides from myself. This thing is so beautiful though, you might find yourself discovering this the hard way. Large enough MB to make installing parts simple, has a more detailed BIOS than my previous FM2 socket ASUS motherboard. Color matches my case's stock LED color. Is very nice.

Cons: Spurns advances

Overall Review: I bought this open-box, and it is functioning perfectly. It's awesome. Do buy.

Righteous processor

AMD FX-4350 Vishera Quad-Core 4.2 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD4350FRW4KHK Never Used

Pros: Functions Doesn't overheat/run hot, and I'm using a stock fan from an A10 processor on it w/o new thermal paste (for now)

Cons: Didn't come with fan or heatsink (not sure if CPUs usually do, this is my first complete build|

Overall Review: Mine had no thermal paste residue, but some others said they had some on theirs. Residue is great, but I'll survive for a few days while my new heatsink/fan and paste arrive.

Fantastic Case

Thermaltake Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) Black SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans - 1 x 200mm Colorshift side fan, 1 x 200mm top fan, 1 x 200mm front fan and 1 x 140mm rear fan

Pros: This case has an absurd amount of space. It's well-built. It's extraordinarily easy to open up and check out. It has a large amount of cable management arrangements. This is my first build, although I've helped friends build theirs, and had a friend help me build this one, so we could LAN sooner. This case has so much space that installing/removing parts is no problem, and that you could install whatever you want to. The hot-swap bays are awesome, the locking mechanisms for the top 4 bays make installation/removal a breeze. The buttons all respond fantastically, and the LED selections are a nice bonus. The fans on this case make this awesome, I can feel a breeze cool my feet from the air being drawn into the side-panel of this case.

Cons: I honestly have no complaints about my case. It is marvelous.

Overall Review: Do not fornicate with case.
