Best bang for the buck

D-Link DKT-408 Wireless N300 Router + Wireless N300 Adapter Combo (DIR-615+DWA-130)
D-Link DKT-408 Wireless N300 Router + Wireless N300 Adapter Combo (DIR-615+DWA-130)

Pros: Works great, using the default drivers and software. Using it with xp pro sp3. I can now stream video with no lag. The combo deal is great if you have an older pcmcia slot. The price for an N router and card was untouchable anywhere else.

Cons: I did have to manually set the channel to 2 due to interference from surrounding wifi systems. Not a big deal.

Overall Review: You only get N speed using wpa or better security. I just think it is a great deal for a home router. If you can't use the card sell it. I did not update the drivers for the card or the firmware for the router. I also have a Vista machine connected to the router and it works fine. Vista installed a driver and connected no problems. Vista version is Ultimate.

Pros: none

Cons: bubbles bubbles and more bubbles, nuff said

Junk

Rosewill - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - CHALLENGER-U3

Pros: It's black, has a USB front slots is you have a connector on your board.

Cons: The left panel is a bit twisted but that is probably my fault for opening it. The case fans that come with it are noisey. They have better cases so get anyone but this one.

Overall Review: Think you are getting a deal well you not. It does fuction as a case if that is all you are looking for. This is a 30 dollar case.

Good Board

GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The board came with the F11 bios which worked fine with my i5 2500k. Loaded windows 7 x64 and it booted right up. I upgraded to the f12 bios which didn't change things all that much. I think for right now it is a good board. I hope it continues to run well.

Cons: When I updated the bios, I booted with the default setting, oops. Got the boot loop due to no resetting the hard drive to AHCI. After doing the reset it booted right up. Doesn't have a USB 3 front connector on the board only on the back.

Overall Review: The board I am using is revision 1.3 so it could make a difference from the earilier versions. Also using 1866 memory and a water cooled cpu system. Overclocked it to 4 gigs for a test and it ran fine for a few hours. I have set it back now. Using a 460 gtx and it plays all the games with great frame rates.

Good Webcam

Logitech C270 USB 2.0 HD WebCam w/ Behind-the-Head Headset

Pros: It works just fine, I bought this for a friend and the price was right for recertified. No Scratches and it looks brand new. Had it up and running in about 5 minutes. Works with windows 7 64bit. I downloaded the drivers from Logitech and they work fine. You also get the make a video and photo software so you can send it to youtube or facebook or whatever floats your boat.

Cons: For what I paid for this item, no cons. Had to pay for shipping, LOL.

Overall Review: May buy another one. I really like the quality and as long as the lens is not scratched it is a real bargin. If you get one that is to beat up, you have 30 days for an exchange. I also recommend the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 if your looking for a better experience. Expect to pay a bit more but the picture quaility is really good.

Pros: setup is very easy and it works with windows 7 64 bit. I am using Windows 7 Enterprise. The picture compared to my laptop webcam is much better.

Cons: After installing the drivers, I still needed a software upgrade from Logitech, there was nothing to it. It will sit on the desktop but it is a little unstable, needs something to hold it down like scotch tape on the foot. Works better on top of the monitor.

Overall Review: All you need to do for setup is, create a name which could be anything, email account and set a password. To connect, you and your friends need the same software which comes with the camera. Anyone can download the software from Logitech for free and it works with any camera. You can also use IM Live, Aim, Skype and a few more. The connection is made by using a freinds email.
