More games need TrackIR!
Pros: If you've never used TrackIR you are missing out on a great gaming experience. I purchased this to use with Arma 3, and it has really improved the experience. Being able to look around in a FPS completely changes the experience. The first time I stuck my head out the window of a helicopter and looked down as I landed was so cool. The second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. all still cool.
Cons: More games need to be compatible with TrackIR. Seriously, I need more reasons to use it. Right now you're mainly limited to simulators.
Great for this gaming novice
Pros: -Great picture. -Not listed, but my card does indicate that freesync is available. (MSI RX480 8GB) -1 ms Response.
Cons: -The image seems distorted when set to 1080. However, I purchased a 2k monitor and not a 1080. -The speaker is terrible. I'll never understand why monitors continue to be made with built in speakers.
Overall Review: -Great for an intro into 2k gaming.
Best keyboard I've ever owned.
Pros: -Fast response time. -Great sound without being annoying. I enjoy the clack of a key being pressed. -Beautiful lighting and cool lighting options. I enjoy Red LED since it is low wattage. -Multimedia keys! -Great brushed aluminum housing. -Designed to be easy to clean. -USB Pass through. -Attachable wrist rest for those who need it.
Cons: -Corsair's software is lacking. However, it works and you won't find yourself using it frequently.
Overall Review: -A number of people have had issues with Multimedia Keys not working. Two things: 1. Access your Windows Services and make sure Human interface Device Service is running. I have mine set to automatic. 2. There's a BIOS switch on the back of the keyboard, make sure it isn't currently set to BIOS. I have mine set at 1 (1ms or 1000hz) for a fast response.
Great budget GPU!
Pros: -Quiet. Nothing more to say. I often wonder if the fans ever even turn on. -Runs cool. Temperature is always stable. -Easily handles any game on Ultra settings at 1440 (Ghost Recon Wildlands runs so good). The only time I've experienced issues was running MKX, but plenty of people have issues with that game.
Cons: -I'm including this just to have a con listed. I dislike the MSI logo on the side. Petty, I know.
Overall Review: -I've been out of the PC gaming world for a few years, and this was the GPU I chose for my re-entry 6 months ago. Enough time has passed for me to tell you that I'd make the same purchase if given the opportunity to do it all over.
