For The Win wins

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Right out of the box at stock everything got 1201mhz on the boost clock. Works better than advertised, that's pretty rare. Evga is also great, Precision X makes it easy to overclock, and the Evga people and forums are very helpful.

Cons: None yet

Overall Review: Just buy it, it's worth the extra money over the regular 670's and it pretty much equals the stock 680s. If anything goes wrong E.V.G.A is a great and helpful company and the card comes with a 3 year warranty.

Most Critical Review

You can do better

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard CherryMX Red Switch USB
Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard CherryMX Red Switch USB

Pros: It is a solid mechanical keyboard that is decently priced for a full sized layout. A great price if you get it on sale for 60$. It has rubberized feet on the back which was a nice touch and the cord is of very high quality.

Cons: The partial back lighting's looks nice but in in practice doesn't cover enough keys to help you play at night. The price is good but you can find better deals on higher quality keyboards if you look around. It is manufactured by iONE, which is far from a beacon of quality in the keyboard world, and that lack of quality is noticeable.

Overall Review: While this is not a bad keyboard, I would recommend to anyone reading this to check out other deals and to read reviews and forums before making this purchase

Buy it

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Compatible with ATX (not included) Power Supply

Pros: Just installed everything with no hassle. The case also feels very cool even when I am a couple feet away. This was my first build and cable management, organization, and set-up was a breeze. The case also looks sexy as hell, especially at night with the white leds. You can tell a lot of effort was put into the case, everything has a polished feel to it.

Cons: Could have added some instructions. It's not that big of a deal though because most everything is self-explanatory (even for a first time builder) and the motherboard includes most of the instructions anyhow.

Overall Review: Just buy it. The 400r is pretty nice too, but the extra features on the 500r make it well worth the extra price.

Great mouse

Pros: just put a battery in, plug in the USB and your good for the next few years very precise, feels solid and ergonomic, the buttons click well and the mouse scrolls well too the battery life is awesome, one AA powers it for about 6 months if you use it about 4 hours every day don't need to turn it off, it automatically goes to sleep when you don't use it

Cons: none

Overall Review: some buttons on the side would be nice for gaming, but it's not that big of a deal even though it is a smaller mouse, it still feels very comfortable on larger hands
