144hz will blow you away!

ASUS VG248QE 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (GTG) 144Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED NVIDIA 3D Gaming Monitor

Pros: If you on the edge of buying this monitor because you're not sure you'll see a difference between 60hz and 144hz, let me tell you there's a difference. Not a small one either. It's nice seeing your mouse move buttery smooth over the desktop, but once you take this monitor into a game, woo-wee does it shine! It's difficult to explain the experience, but it's amazing

Cons: Colors are a bit washed out, but once you get this monitor I recommend you check out this post on PCMR to make the monitor look great! http://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/1wxse9/just_bought_a_glorious_asus_vg248qe_gaming/

Overall Review: Make sure to use a connection that supports 144hz. I would use the Dual Link DVI cable that comes in the box.

Great case

Pros: This case is great! I bought this about a year ago and have had no major issues. I got this case for around $60 USD on sale. Would I have bought it if it was at the retail price of $109.99? Probably not. Not because it's not worth the asking price, but I just feel you shouldn't be spending all the much on a chassis.

Cons: I got the windowed side panel version and have had few issues with micro-scratches. If you get the windowed version, while cleaning try to stay away from paper towels and stick to microfiber cloths.

Works and haven't had any issues.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9W

Pros: I've had this RAM since 2012 and I haven't had any issues. The low profile really does help with large CPU coolers. My RAM was running a bit hot, so make sure you have adequate airflow in your system. It's been running well for the past 2+ years, hopefully it will keep on running well for much longer.

Cons: It seems that it's become a bit pricy, but most RAM has. I believe I got mine for around $70.0 USD around 2 years ago.

Overall Review: After installing check your BIOS and make sure it is running at 1600MHz. Mine was running at 1333MHz, but that's easy to change in the BIOS.

Great set of tools!

Pros: Came with everything I needed to bring my components from one case to the other. The 15pc comes with a really nice leather-like carrying case.

Cons: None yet. :^)
