AeroCool Turbine Power 550 W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply
AeroCool Turbine Power 550 W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply

Pros: -Very Sexy looking Power Supply -Tons of power -Very Very Very Quiet. Very Quiet. -See above. -The guys who are posting saying its not quiet have to have a bad one. Mine practically silent. -Cool Blue UV Light -Cable Management system with TONS of cables to use. Cables are not as stiff as other posts claim. I found beinding them and manuvering them to be simple.

Cons: -Does not seem to pull much air. This may because my box is in my basement and is fairly cool so the psu does not need to work to hard, but I could be wrong. If you use your powersupply as your only exit fan this may not be the best psu for you.

Overall Review: Its great. Really cleaned up my case. More than enough conectors that are easily bendable and menuverable. Overall an excellent power supply. I would definitely buy again. The cables are really long and will reach whereever you want them to go.

Pretty good...

EVGA 122-CK-NF66-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA 122-CK-NF66-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Cheap, one of the few nvidia boards without SLI and 3 pci slots. Great evga tech support.

Cons: Pretty crudy layout. The one IDE is facing sideways and can be very annoying. If you use a large graphics card, like my 7800GTX, anything you put in the top pci slot will touch the graphics card and if its a large pci card, it probably wont fit. As it is now, my creative x-fi card would half cover the air intake on the card and the x-fi itself would have to bend in its slot a bit to fit. Just awful. basiclly has only two pci slots. The layout on other stuff is awful to. The usb connectors are pretty much directly beneath the last pci slot so if you have a large card, like my creative that i moved down there, hope that those usb cables dont have to travel far. No post beeps (WHAT THE HECK!?!?) Quick start guide instead of a manual, is basically useless except for case pwr and led pin layout. Manual is on cd. The board I got died after a day. I fully believe that it was because my powersupply fried it (this was a replacement board) but I'm including this note anyways

Overall Review: Tech support was good. =) Aparently the SLI version has an LED that lets you know what is wrong with the board. Since the last pci slot is obsctructed anyways... unless the SLI version is much more expensive you should probably go for that one.

Ugh

psyko PC51V1 Circumaural 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System
psyko PC51V1 Circumaural 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System

Pros: They actually hook up to your soundcard, not a usb connection. The control box is pretty sweet and lets you know which speakers are active. The mic works very well.

Cons: Ugly Heavy Unconfortable after moderate gaming sessions. You have to really fiddle with EQ to get them to sound good, though once you do they sound great, until... My rear right speaker is MUCH louder than the others. My center speaker is dead. This is a 200 dollar headset. They shouldnt break that easily. Absolutely not worth the money and I certainly wont be buying Psyko again.

Overall Review: Yea don't buy anything from this company, they suck.

Good, but some design mistakes.

TRITTON AX51 Pro 5.1 True Surround Sound Headset WITH 8 PRECISION SPEAKERS, DESIGNED for PC – 3.5mm Analog Input
TRITTON AX51 Pro 5.1 True Surround Sound Headset WITH 8 PRECISION SPEAKERS, DESIGNED for PC – 3.5mm Analog Input

Pros: - Excellent surround sound quality. - Excellent mic sound qaulity. - Not USB, it actually plugs into Creative sound cards.

Cons: Has a serious design flaw. There is no way to turn off the headphones without either unplugging the power cord (hard to reach in my case) or separating the headphones from the long cord that connects them to the PC. This connection has a whole bunch of thin prongs that fit into tiny holes on the female side without being painfully obvious how they fit together. So what happened? My female (wife) was trying to hook the headphones back up (because who wants to leave them running all the time? I unplugged them when not in use) and bent several of the prongs severely out of shape. The result is an unworking pair of headphones.

Overall Review: Everything is good but after skimming new egg it looks like there are other decent choices in a similar price range.

Good stuff!

MSI PC60G Turbo G Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g 32bit PCI2.2 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Works and is cheap. Does what it says it does. Has no trouble getting signals. Very small card.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Great buy!

Great processor!

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 105W Processor - BX80562Q6600
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 775 105W Processor - BX80562Q6600

Pros: Very fast, 4 cores means you multitask like crazy.

Cons: None really with the processor itself. The heatsink it comes with is kind of dinky... and if you dont do much high end multitastking or your stuff is threaded for multiple cores then this baby is overkill. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with the processor.

Overall Review: Great price too!
