Best price-performance cpu

Intel Pentium E2200 - Pentium Allendale Dual-Core 2.2 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E2200
Intel Pentium E2200 - Pentium Allendale Dual-Core 2.2 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E2200

Pros: EASY to OC on a P35 chipset. I got mine at 2.5ghz on stock and 3.1ghz with a Freezer 7 Pro with AC MX-2.

Cons: It gets hot at 2.5ghz on the stock cooler

Overall Review: After owning this for 4 days it utterly destroys my AMD X2 4200+

They're ok..

Creative FATAL1TY 3.5mm gold-plated Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Creative FATAL1TY 3.5mm gold-plated Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: The headset is ok. It's got ok sound quality, ok build, and it's not that ergonomic.

Cons: It's got lesser sound quality than my now dead Razer Piranha's.

Overall Review: Meh.

Great ram

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ

Pros: This ram is pretty fast! Works OK with my ECS 790GX board, too bad it's a piece of junk. The ram itself is awesome, runs at 1333 9-9-9-24 1.5v and feels a bit faster than my DDR2-1066 ram.

Cons: My ECS 790GX board is a piece of junk. When ever I set my RAM to 800(1600 DDR), it just clocks it down to 400(800 DDR).. Not the rams fault, I had the same problem with a 2x2gb Elpida kit.

Overall Review: Paired with an AMD Phenom II 720 Black Edition and a 4870 1gb, awesome gaming machine!

Had to buy more

XIGMATEK PTI-G3606 thermal grease
XIGMATEK PTI-G3606 thermal grease

Pros: Bought some more as I ran out. Now using on a Phenom II 720BE clocked at 3.6ghz, doesn't break 52c with a Xigmatek S1284.

Cons: None

Great little card!

ASUS Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M
ASUS Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M

Pros: This thing is fast! Plays all my games at 1920x1080 with the settings all on the highest. I'm very happy with it!

Cons: Runs pretty hot, but well within the safe limit

Overall Review: Comes clocked out of the box at 680mhz, that's a large jump from stock. Got this with an AMD Phenom II 720BE and it just destroys everything at 1920x1080..

It's a DVI cable

Link Depot DVI-6-DD Black DVI 24-Pin (Others Also Call 25-Pin or 24+1-Pin) DVI-D Male to DVI-D Male Dual Link Cable
Link Depot DVI-6-DD Black DVI 24-Pin (Others Also Call 25-Pin or 24+1-Pin) DVI-D Male to DVI-D Male Dual Link Cable

Pros: Well it's a DVI cable. Not sure what else to say about it.

Cons: It's pretty thick and hard to bend/move.
