Whoa! Fast!

AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 - Athlon 64 FX San Diego Single-Core 2.6 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADAFX55BNBOX
AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 - Athlon 64 FX San Diego Single-Core 2.6 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADAFX55BNBOX

Pros: Very Fast CPU. I've heard these CPUs run hot, but that's simply not true, mine idles around 30C.

Cons: Expensive. :P

Awesome case!!!

Pros: Sturdy case. Love the front panel. The material looks like some sort of machined metal, but i'm pretty darn sure it's really plastic. Nice lighting without any addon cold cathode tubes. Good Airflow.

Cons: Screwless installation seemed to be more of a hassle that installing everything with screws.

Overall Review: Don't know if the PSU was any good yet, i'm using an SLI certified Antec PSU. I would have bought the version of this case without a PSU, but they were sold out, and i wasn't going to wait. Such an awesome case. It looks like it could fly. ;)

Fast and stable

Pros: Running 2GB of this stuff in my new system. Never had this thing freeze. This stuff is really fast too.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: Heatspreaders are pretty nice too. This is the first time i've bot higher end RAM. Wanted to buy high end RAM for my high end system.

Overall Review: didn't you read the pros? Why haven't you bought this yet???

Very Good Monitor. Especially for the money.

BenQ FP91G+ 19" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI LCD Monitor
BenQ FP91G+ 19" SXGA 1280 x 1024 D-Sub, DVI LCD Monitor

Pros: Very clear. Clearer than my high end CRT 19" monitor. Very high contrast. Very bright(even had to turn the brightness and contrast down!). Controls are easy to work with. NO DEAD PIXELS!

Cons: Noticeable difference from this monitor, and my old CRT. You can notice a bit of ghosting with this monitor. Not much, i can definately live with it, just thought it might be worth mentioning.

Overall Review: Even with that bit of ghosting, i would take this monitor over my old 19" CRT any day of the week.

Best mouse i've ever owned

Logitech G7 Black 6 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser 2000 dpi Mouse

Pros: After using this mouse, i can't even stand my old one anymore. No lag whatsoever. Plenty of buttons.

Cons: Very expensive for a mouse.

Overall Review: This thing slides so smooth on my desk. Best mouse i've ever used for gaming. Or any other purpose for that matter. It feels so refined.
