Powerful Card

EVGA GeForce GTX 275 1792MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 017-P3-1175-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 275 1792MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 017-P3-1175-AR

Pros: EVGA Precision overclock is easy to use and works great. I haven't run into a game that this card couldn't handle. I would definitely recommend this card for the price. Comes with Arkham Asylum. Never had a problem with EVGA

Cons: Runs a bit hot. Gets up to about 67c and I have seen it hit 70 without overclocking it, but you can speed up the fan and it does help a bit.

Overall Review: Very large card, make sure you have room and a case with plenty of air flow.

Most Critical Review

Great Brand, Bad Flash Drive

OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G
OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G

Pros: Fast and reliable while it lasted.

Cons: Only lasted me 34 days. It died only 4 days after the return policy was up. I would not recommend this flash drive. OCZ makes great products but this was not one of them. It bends very easily and repeated pulling and pushing into USB ports caused the drive to die.

Overall Review: OCZ makes great SSDs but not flash drives. If you want a durable rubber flash drive, go with the Corsair Flash Voyager.

Ehh

SABRENT EC-ESTK Aluminum 3.5" SATA or SATA II eSATA External Enclosure
SABRENT EC-ESTK Aluminum 3.5" SATA or SATA II eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Speed is great and it seems to be functioning well.

Cons: The hard drive will not fit in all the way without crushing the power and SATA cable. Luckily I don't plan to move it around.

Overall Review: Could use a USB port. And remember....you get what you pay for.

Great case

AZZA Fantom 900 Black Japanese SECC Steel/Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
AZZA Fantom 900 Black Japanese SECC Steel/Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Plenty of air flow, solid build, plenty of room

Cons: Put the hard drives in before you put in the motherboard or you cant take out the HDD chasis to screw them in.

Overall Review: Was definately worth it for the money. Opening the front to get to your DVD-ROM can be annoying but it looks cool.

Excellent CPU

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 140W Processor - HDZ965FBGIBOX
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 140W Processor - HDZ965FBGIBOX

Pros: I have it clocked at 3.8ghz and im sure i could move it up to 4 no problem. runs at 1.425v at 3.8 and i dont see temps over 50c while playing crysis, with the stock cooler.

Cons: none I have come across yet.

Overall Review: Don't waste your money on an i7 if your a gamer. This CPU is more than enough.

Great AM3 motherboard

ASUS Crosshair III Formula AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS Crosshair III Formula AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: BIOS is great, makes OCing easy and has every option you could ask for. Surprisingly the sound card works great and has some decent features for coming packaged with a motherboard.

Cons: Chipsets do run a little hot but I have yet to have a problem with them. If you have a Large video card which im sure you will or do it will cover your PCI or PCIe slot which does suck but I havent seen any motherboards that dont have that problem.

Overall Review: the best motherboard I have seen for AM3 processors.
