Awesome Card!!

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card GV-R577UD-1GD

Pros: I heard the few horror stories about the 5000 Series cards, but it seems like I got the luck of the draw. It runs excellent, played Mass Effect 2 and Fallout 3 at 1920x1080 with Max Settings and it didn't miss a beat. The fan on it isn't that loud either, but it is inside my Antec 1200 case so its kinda hard to tell.

Cons: None so far.

Awesome Memory

Pros: Updated my bios on my X570 AORUS Master to the lasted version and picked the XMP Profile. Ran at full speed with no issues. RGB is really nice as well.

Cons: Not a one.

Overall Review: Will definitely recommend these to a friend.

Great Monitor

Samsung CRG9 Series LC49RG90SSNXZA 49" Dual Quad HD 5120 x 1440 Resolution 120Hz HDMI, 2x DisplayPort AMD FreeSync 2 Flicker Free HDR1000 QLED Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: Awesome viewing space. Can have one side dedicated to my work laptop and the other for gaming using PBP. Everything is rather smooth at a 120 Hz and I'm using two 1080 TIs in SLI with Free-Sync off.

Cons: HDR is way too dark to enjoy so I keep it off. Mine came with one dead pixel. It is at the far right corner of the screen so it isn't super noticeable. Wish better QA was conducted none the less.

Overall Review: It is a great monitor but if you get one with more than one dead pixel you should definitely send it back for a replacement.

Excellent!

Enermax ETS-T40-BK Black 120mm Twister CPU Cooler with TB Apollish Blue LED PWM Fan

Pros: Very quiet and keeps my CPU under 41 C at full load! Was able to install another fan (120) on the heatsink for a push-pull configuration.

Cons: If you own the Antec 1200 case you will not be able to install a side fan. This thing is huge!

Overall Review: Money well spent!

Pros: Lots of ports, Awesome overclocking potential, USB 3.0 and SATA III.

Cons: Wish all the ports was SATA III and USB 3.0.... guess I'm being greedy though.
