Pros: - Available and in stock - Much faster than my old card. - Easy setup - Plug and play
Cons: - Not Nvidia 30 series - A tad pricy but not scalper prices
Overall Review: I really wanted an Nvidia 30 series card but I already gave away my first born for a used car. My new build just looked sad without a GPU. In a side-by-side comparison this card (AMD RX 6500 XT) doesn't win many awards. But when I compare it to what I already have (e.g. GTX 1050 ti) it is much faster. This card will at least get me by until that day in the distant future when Nvidia cards are actually on store shelves.
Good mid level CPU
Pros: - Fast enough for gaming - Good price point
Cons: - nothing negative yet.
Overall Review: I love this CPU (i5-11400F). I needed to upgrade from Haswell for Windows 11 compatibility and this seemed to be well reviewed. I did some render testing and this processor is at least 50% faster than my 4th gen i7.
Pros: Not the exact part I ordered but they substituted with a more expensive memory chip.
Overall Review: It took a little longer than expected for delivery but the part is excellent. With the supply chain difficulties I know that everyone is struggling to get parts shipped. Overall I'm happy with the purchase
