PowerColor Radeon R9 Fury X 4GB HBM PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AX R9 FURY X 4GBHBM-DH

Pros: Alright, so earlier this year I went from a HD 7870 to a R380. This was 3 months ago. For some reason I didn't feel satisfied. I was able to run all my games in ultra before, but I wasn't satisfied. So I bought this during black friday, and let me tell you it's a beast. I went from 45ish fps on fallout 4 and crysis 3. Now I'm pushing beyond that(, I play ff14 as well, I get about 130fps before 67ish. Everything I throw at it, it takes it. I've got a quiet one I guess, but I usually have a headset on, so I don't really pay attention. Temperature? The hottest I've seen it get is 51 degrees. It drops to 37 within 12 seconds. I am beyond satisfied with this. I can finally say, I don't need to upgrade anything on my pc for a long time, till zen ;)

Cons: Make sure you have a case that the fan can fit, I bought one ahead of it, because I knew it would be an issue with my mid case.

HUGE

Pros: Compared to the Gaming edge wifi, which kept giving me issues. This is night and day, im biased towards MSI mobo's and this did not let me down.

Cons: Smalls RGB, but i dont even look at my tower its on the ground lol.

Overall Review: Recommend it anyone

Pros: Quiet! Cool! and performance. Coming from a fury x, huge difference. Just a beast. I dont have g-sync I have a freesync 1440p 144hz. dont even miss the freesync advantages, this gpu just pushes it so you dont notice it

Cons: other than a fedex error. no cons

Overall Review: Not much to say, corsair and msi. My two favorite brands for pc parts. 3 year warranty

It does the job

AOC G2460PF 24" Gaming Monitor, FreeSync, FHD (1920x1080), TN Panel, 144Hz, 1ms, Height Adjustable, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB
AOC G2460PF 24" Gaming Monitor, FreeSync, FHD (1920x1080), TN Panel, 144Hz, 1ms, Height Adjustable, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB

Pros: -144hz -freesync

Cons: -colors Yeah it takes you a while to change the settings, you will have to google on some color profiles. It took me 2 days get a good profile and even then I had to tune it to my settings. -Overdrive I dont have the overdrive enabled on mine, Talked to CS. I have an old firmware, the only way I can get enabled is to RMA it to them. (crazy huh)

Overall Review: I still am happy with the overall product. I cant go back to 60hz. Night and day.

Great prodcut

Saitek X52 Flight Control System
Saitek X52 Flight Control System

Pros: -sturdy -good grip -led lights -aesthetics

Cons: -gotta put it away once i'm done lol

Overall Review: So I play Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen(Alpha). Those games I would use my xbox one controller, for some reason I still found it hard to fly and dogfight with the controller, keyboard and mouse is literally impossible for me. Using this Saitek, Man alive! Besides I get an instant immersion feeling, I can actually fly the crafts, it only took a few seconds to adjust to it, but once I did. Like night and day.
