Most Favorable Review

Phenomenal

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G
MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G

Pros: Upgraded from a Radeon 6850 - almost went with AMD again but I eventually wanted to run dual GPUs and with AMD that would require a new psu - This has lower power consumption -Better performance for everything other than 4k resolution compared to the AMD radeon 290x -Runs cooler and quieter than my last graphics card even on overclock mode -I can now run Far Cry 4 at Ultra and any other game in my library -No coil whine so far as some others indicated

Cons: the whole Nvidia 3.5/.05 gb Vram issue but it hasn't caused me any issues with it not being a 4gb

Most Critical Review

hit and miss

OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV4GK
OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV4GK

Pros: runs fast when it does run

Cons: Major issues with this RAM, unreliable, failed after 2 days of putting it in, getting blue screen memory dump errors every time I play games, use firefox, and install games. If you buy this you have a chance of it working great or running like a pile of s***, or even a DOA, be ready to return it, Unfortunately I did not install mine until about 29 days after I bought it (I ordered my gaming pc part by part, this was one of the first i ordered) and they won't refund/replace it on the 30th day

Overall Review: I wish i would have bought Kingston, going to contact OCZ and get a replacement hopefully

Extremely comfortable

COOLERMASTER MH-751 MH751 Gaming Hdst

Pros: This headset is probably the most comfortable I've ever tried and definitely the most comfortable I've owned. Sound quality is clear Everything is detachable Mic works well

Cons: Bass leaves something to be desired but not bad at all for something without its own power source. Mic leaves my friends deaf sometimes because its super sensitive

Overall Review: I would buy again and highly recommend for anybody looking for a no-frills option.

Good performance

ASUS RT-AC1200G AC1200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router with four 5dBi antennas and Parental Controls
ASUS RT-AC1200G AC1200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router with four 5dBi antennas and Parental Controls

Pros: Decent coverage and speeds. No issues with rebooting as stated with other people. Handles 900-1000 mbps upload and download on wired with no issues

Cons: 5ghz wifi maxes in the 500's for speeds - I'm not sure if it's an issue with the router or just needs an update or settings changed.

Overall Review: I would buy it again. But wouldn't pay more than $80 for this device. Next time I'll probably do a higher performance router or mesh wifi system

EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 220-G2-0750-XR 80+ GOLD 750W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: Very efficient and has enough power to support most applications. Reliable

Cons: the Sata power cable connectors break too easy - down to half of them working

Overall Review: Be careful with the Sata Power cables when you are cramped on space. the bottom portion can break off where it plugs into the hard drive

Plug in and play

ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX + AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard
ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX + AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard

Pros: Gotta say, never bought ASRock before but I am decently impressed, I took out my ASUS and connected this one and it started right up.

Cons: Cannot find a way to OC the GPU in the bios, have to use software.

Overall Review: UPDATE: Had this board for 1 1/2 years now and still running strong after going through surges and brown-outs. no issues.
