SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100245HDMI
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100245HDMI

Pros: I usually go with Nvidia video cards but at this price, the performance of this card cannot be beat. Huge improvement over my 8600 GTS that I had before this, can run all my games at high settings. It is also pretty quiet.

Cons: big?

Great PSU

EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 120-G1-0650-XR 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 120-G1-0650-XR 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: -80+ Gold, fully modular, looks great. -All-black sleeving for the cables. Hugely important for me, wanted that clean black look in my case not the rainbow of ugly colors that come at the end of many other cables.

Cons: -None. Don't know what the deal is with these other reviews on here. All of my cables fit perfectly and it doesn't make any noise. -I guess having 4 12V rails instead of 1, like the 750G2, could be considered a con, but meh. Who cares.

Overall Review: Just running one R9 270x, so plenty of power for me. Think I would be fine with this even if I decided to get another one. Great PSU, highly recommended.

MSI Z97S SLI Plus LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -LOOKS AMAZING! Best-looking mobo on Newegg in my opinion. -Has lots of SATA ports. It's the cheapest LGA 1150 mobo with 8+ sata ports. -Has everything I could need. Only built my computer yesterday so haven't fully explored the bios and other features, but seems good. -Seems to work perfectly with my R9 270X so far. Previous reviewer may have gotten unlucky with his 290, not sure, but the 270x works fine.

Cons: -I can see how the right angle USB 3 header would be a problem for some but luckily my case (Corsair 450D) had plenty of room to the right of the board to plug it in. -Header for the case LEDs and power button stuff were a bit far away, had to pull the cables in a straight line for them to reach, no cable routing possible. Could be the case's fault for the cables being too short, but it worked in the end. -Could indeed use more fan headers. My case has tons of spaces for fans but I can't utilize them :/

Overall Review: Awesome board, highly recommended. Go for it!

Great Caae

Western Digital WDBABJ0000NBK-NRSN Hard Carring Case for My Passport Portable Drives
Western Digital WDBABJ0000NBK-NRSN Hard Carring Case for My Passport Portable Drives

Pros: My Western Digital Elements SE 1TB portable hard drive fits perfectly in this case. When inside, there is no wiggle room at all when I shake the case (maybe not a good idea? lol). It's a very nice looking case (you can find pics elsewhere on the net as newegg doesn't have one yet), and it should do a great job protecting the hard drive from scratches and abuse when inside a backpack or other case.

Cons: Shipping cost, perhaps, is a lot for this cheap case.

Overall Review: Definitely recommended!

Fantastic Drive

Western Digital Elements SE 1TB USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive
Western Digital Elements SE 1TB USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive

Pros: This is my first external hard drive that I've ever purchased and I'm amazed by how small it is. The design is simple and very nice, matte finish on top and bottom so no fingerprints, but it is glossy on the sides, but that's no big deal. Size! 1TB is the largest 2.5" hard drive size and it's awesome for all my movies and tv shows and such that I can't fit onto the small SSD that I got with my laptop. As this is the portable version you don't need an external power source which is great

Cons: Speed is what you would expect from a usb 2.0 drive, eh.

Overall Review: I bought the Western Digital Hard Carrying case with it and it fits perfectly inside of it, snug with no moving around when I shake the case. Would definitely recommend this drive to everyone.

Good

Western Digital Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast, big, 5 year warranty!!

Cons: When accessing the drive, the drive makes loud i guess you could call them clicking noises for lack of a better description. This can get somewhat annoying. I don't know how normal this is, but it does not happen with my 500gb WD caviar black that I purchased earlier, that drive is pretty silent.
