Great buy

EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Not a bad price, easy, fast. Personally love EVGA for graphic cards, never had any issues. nothing is worse than poor driver support or hardware and 0 support. Grabbed 2, have them in sli running 2 monitors. I can play BF3 on ultra, and stream, trade stocks, music, ect off the same computer and that on windows 7ult(64bit).

Cons: none

Overall Review: I did have one problem, be aware that these cards only will run up to 2 monitors even in sli. i was hoping to run 3 24in monitors, but thats my own fault not evga. still an excellent card and especially for the price.

Pros: its sharp looking

Cons: Lost the 1st RMA, BSOD randomly right out of the box on day one. Purchased gx600r on 2/19/2011 5/27/2011=(NR11018097) 7/20/2011=(NRE11024455) 8/17/2011=(NRW11028229) (all RMA's for the same BSOD issue, as i paid shipping to MSI 4x fed ex($$). Everytime i got it back, it was more worn, scratched up.) Tried Investing $ for a reliable computer for trading stocks daily on(work). Ended up not having a computer, paying more money, no work...

Overall Review: honestly I always liked MSI, was all about them for years.

its all in the pruduct title

PC Power and Cooling Turbo Cool 1200W Server-grade High Performance SLI CrossFire ready Power Supply Intel 4th Gen CPU Haswell Compatibility

Pros: Its a beast, no problems at all. its 2x the size of my older box. when I buy i want the best, try to aim top quality. last think i wanna be thinking and doing, is the math for expensive hardware that i need for my work.

Cons: none, only that there's a lot of wires which anyone with a computer knows. just took a good couple hours to neatly tuck and clean everything up for good flow and visual.

Overall Review: personally i believe you get what you pay for, unless your getting the cutting edge experimental hardware. I personally feel that i got my moneys worth with this product, plenty of room to expand, and hope i dont have to replace it for a long time.

Great Chip

Intel Core i5-2500K - Core i5 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I52500K

Pros: fast, easy, and not to pricy. Gives great OC specs and is more than enough for what more than 70% of everyone does or needs.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Personally was between this and the AMD FX-8150. honestly wish i did go with the 8 core just for the multitasking, and 8 cores for 250 bucks....

life buyer

ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Excellent board, no problems at all. I personally will look at Asrock as my top pick for mother boards. The quality and options made the 290 price tag disappear.

Cons: none

Overall Review: have had countless problems with motherboards and other hardware, then came the even more crappier support. Boards still brand new, but seeing the time, quality and tools they give you personally says it all. they just got a life time buyer, till they give me a reason not to be.

Great buy
