Amazing

EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti FTW ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 08G-P5-3667-KL, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, LHR
EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti FTW ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 08G-P5-3667-KL, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, LHR

Pros: High, stable clock speeds stays cool RGB (minimal, but its still there if thats what youre into)

Cons: RGB (granted you can turn it off, I prefer a blacked out system.

Overall Review: I won this in a newegg shuffle, and was hesitant to pull the trigger because it wasnt much of an improvement over my RTX 2070 on paper. I soon learned that in game it was much different. Suddenly games that my 2070 couldnt push 144hz on were hitting and sitting at 144hz. Even stays as cool as my 2070 with almost 300mhz more on the clock speeds. This card at factory settings hits almost 2000Mhz. Very impressive piece of work. This is my first EVGA gpu, and im convinced they are the best out of the brands ive bought in the past.

Lightning didnt strike twice

Seasonic S12III 500 SSR-500GB3 500W 80+ Bronze Power Supply, ATX12V & EPS12V, Direct Output, Smart & Silent Fan Control, 5 yr Warranty

Pros: Great budget cpu no ketchup and mustard cables

Cons: Lousy warranty system, get extended warranty Inconsistent quality Slight whine

Overall Review: I've bought two of these PSU's. One for my personal build, and then after using mine for a while with no issues outside of a slightly audible whine, another for my sons personal build. My psu is still up and running with no issues, powering a i9-9900k build(with no gpu). My sons build, not so lucky. After less than 6 months of use, his build started having random but consistent shut offs/restarts. Swapped out seasonic psu with a spare i had, problem went away. Put seasonic back in, problems returned. To RMA the PSU, i was going to have to pay almost the cost of the PSU to ship it to seasonic. So beware, if you purchase this cheap PSU, spend the few extra bucks to get the extended warranty that you will be able to use after a year of owning the PSU.

Better than Gigabyte

Pros: -Hasnt blown up yet under extensive heavy load

Cons: Non yet

Overall Review: Bought one of these about a year ago when i got a RTX 2070 gpu. Never had any issues. Bought another one when i got a RTX 3060TI from newegg shuffle. Still no issues. Go Team EVGA for making quality PSU's that dont blow up like Gigabytes do.

Fast and pretty

G.SKILL Trident Z Neo (For AMD Ryzen) Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin RGB DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-16GTZNC

Pros: Works great with AMD Controllable RGB

Cons: Pricey

Overall Review: What can i say about this ram that you probably havent seen in a jayztwocents, LTT, or bitwit video? Thats where i found out about them, a buddy uses them in his AMD rig, and now i use them in mine. Buy 32GB's worth of these and set your XMP profile in bios if it doesnt already detect it, and youre off to the races. Set colors as desired. Note: if you are going for an all white LED build, these are more of a dirty yellow white, not a clean blue white.

Great cheap case

DIYPC Alnitak-BK Black USB 3.0 ATX and Micro-ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with 3 x 120mm Blue Fans (Pre-installed)
DIYPC Alnitak-BK Black USB 3.0 ATX and Micro-ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with 3 x 120mm Blue Fans (Pre-installed)

Pros: sturdy case 3 fans

Cons: collects dust easily 3 fan gpu has tight fit cable management could be better

Overall Review: ive been using this case for a good 6+ months, and have no major complaints. everything works good. i had no complaints until i stuck a 3 fan gpu inside. very tight fit because of the bracket at the front of the case. power cords for gpu had to be plugged in prior to installing card.
