HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H787Q2G2M
HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H787Q2G2M

Pros: Good price, per performance. This card performs close to GTX660Ti, while costing about $80 less. Performs better than GTX660Ti in most games with higher res and AA on. Also, very energy efficient design. (was a factor for me)

Cons: Nothing as of now, will update if changes.

Overall Review: Rather large cooling solution. I have plenty of room in my case, could have one other in Crossfire, if I wanted. However if you don't have a big case you might want to consider getting a different card.

Great CPU

AMD Ryzen 7 3rd Gen - RYZEN 7 3800X Matisse (Zen 2) 8-Core 3.9 GHz (4.5 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W 100-100000025BOX Desktop Processor

Pros: I think for the price it is excellent value. 3700X is probably even better value, however I really can't complain for what I use it for. Which is a m mixed workload of transcoding and some gaming.

Cons: Nothing I can think of.

Overall Review: Excellent CPU for the price!

240GB SSD

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7
Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 240GB SATA III 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR240GB-7

Pros: Good speed on my system, actually improved the Win Exp index going from a 180GB SSD. Nice read and write speeds more than adequate for my needs. Like the size of the 240GB (about 223GB usable) definetely an upgrade from 180GB, for myself. The smaller disk went into a laptop where it is more than adequate.

Cons: None really, is performing as it should for me.

Overall Review: I would buy this again

Adapter

Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDBRKT2535 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter bracket
Mushkin Enhanced MKNSSDBRKT2535 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter bracket

Pros: It works, not too expensive.

Cons: Doesn't lock on both locking points of the 3.5" system. Not really an issue.

No issues

OCZ Agility 3 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AGT3-25SAT3-180G
OCZ Agility 3 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AGT3-25SAT3-180G

Pros: Good speed, good capacity. Good price, I got it for about $130.

Cons: Nothing to do with the quality of the drive, but could be bigger :) It would be better if it came with a 3.5" adapter.

Great value

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Pros: My motherboard recognized the Speed and timing once set to automatic. The build quality and the quality of the paint on the heat sinks is good. Its fast and its a sufficient amount. Also, loved the price of just $29!!!

Cons: Not a big fan of BIG RED (or any other color except black) heat sinks.

Overall Review: I would definitely get some of this memory. Scores 7.4 in the windows experience index.
