1st Time Overclocker

Intel Core i5-3570K - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop Processor - BX80637I53570K
Intel Core i5-3570K - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop Processor - BX80637I53570K

Pros: Stable and is Overclocking how I want it to. This is in my first pc I built in 10+ years. I had no issues with the CPU as of yet and I put it under a Prime95 24 hour stress test to make sure my OC was stable. No sweat!!

Cons: None

Overall Review: People need to stop justifying their recent i5-2500k purchases with the ignorant excuse that the 3570k doesn't overclock as high... Do More Research! The numbers might go higher with the 2500k but clock for clock it can't touch the 3570k.

Most Critical Review

Typical MMO /w Unique Combat

Tera Online PC Game
Tera Online PC Game

Pros: The Graphics are decent. oh and the customer service for when I canceled my sub was amazing... 2 stars because this in total isn't enough to make this game worth the time to play it past a free trial.

Cons: Quest system seems to be an after thought, and horribly done. Combat system while unique and easy to get use makes ranged combat feel choppy and clunky and this combat system is the only thing this game has going for it PERIOD... with GW2 coming out, and TSW already released do not bother with this garbage...

Overall Review: They added the prologue during the beta and it starts out with mindless quest grabbing text blah blah blah with at the very end of it level 20 combat for a very small portion of the prologue... The idea is good the execution is horrible. This game is a BOX price + MONTHLY with Korean grind = not worth the time.

Best 670 on the market!

EVGA 02G-P4-3677-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW Signature2 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA 02G-P4-3677-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW Signature2 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: What's Up Yall!!? Got my hands on this EVGA card and figured it is good enough to write a review here where I purchased it! Pros: * High quality build * Adapters are even sleeved * Extremely High performance Boost Clock 1333Mhz * EVGA has the best customer service in the industry! I have been testing many different GTX 670s and after getting a refund from the manufacturer of the last 670 I tested I decided I'd give EVGA a try. So far it has been the most powerful out of the box boosting up to 1215Mhz without any overclock. This thing also overclocked higher than most 670s / 680s I've tested pushing 1333Mhz on boost.. EVGA has put a contender out on the market and it is begging to be noticed. Great Product EVGA - I can't wait to see your 700 series version of this card ;) ~ Now That's What's Up!!! ~ IamApropos

Cons: No cons

Overall Review: I'm a computer parts and build consultant and I've had the ability to test quite a few different 670s on the market. I have and will be recommending this card to anyone in the market for a 670. Not just because this card is one of the best performing 670s I've ever seen but because its coupled with a company that provides the best customer service in the industry. Great job EVGA and thank you!

Missing Boarderlands 2

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 670 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-N670OC-2GD

Pros: The Card is Great!! - Don't get me wrong the card is amazing.

Cons: When I ordered this card, I purchased 2 of them and it showed that I was going to recieve 1 voucher for Boarderlands 2. It did not come with a voucher at all and now that I look back at the order history it doesn't show it either... Totally unaccepltable.

Overall Review: I had 2 full computer builds sent on the same day so as I was excited going thru the packaging I overlooked the fact that the game voucher did not get sent... Now that my systems are up and running, I'm looking for this game I was promised and its not here!!!

Gaming Monitor

ASUS VS Series VS238H-P Black 23" HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 50,000,000:1
ASUS VS Series VS238H-P Black 23" HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 50,000,000:1

Pros: I'm using this as a gaming monitor, though it isn't 120Hz. I have another monitor that runs 60hz and is the same size as this. This monitor makes my old monitor look just horrible. Stable Frame and does not wabble on my desk like some others have complained. 50m:1 with a 2ms makes a HUGE difference!!! I mean absolutely HUGE!

Cons: none

Overall Review: I suppose if I put this awesome monitor on a garbage desk it would have an issue of wabbling... Its a great monitor and I plan on buying another.

Speed!!!

SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC128B/WW

Pros: I expected fast but WOW!! I use this as my boot drive and to store Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 3, Mechwarrior online, and another soon to release Robot Mech FPS game that I currently can't name. Loading screens take seconds instead of nearly minutes with my old mechanical HDD.

Cons: none

Overall Review: My first SSD experience and it blew my expectations out of the water!!!
