Nearly perfect

Acer XG270HU omidpx 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms 144Hz AMD FreeSync Technology Edge-to-Edge Frameless Design DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers LED Backlit LCD Gaming Monitor
Acer XG270HU omidpx 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms 144Hz AMD FreeSync Technology Edge-to-Edge Frameless Design DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers LED Backlit LCD Gaming Monitor

Pros: Good price and specs. I love playing games on it; Free Sync is amazing.

Cons: The stand could be a bit better. I have 1 stuck pixel in the lower left corner. I rarely notice it though, so it isn't that big of a deal to me.

Excellent Card

Pros: Good build quality, looks awesome, and runs cool. I've had zero issues with it, and it runs games great.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I'm thinking I'll add a second card in X-Fire when I get a third monitor for Eyefinity. Right now I'm only gaming on one of my two screens, because Eyefinity isn't that great with just two monitors.

No Complaints

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

Pros: Installed with i3-4130 on BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z87W. Zero stability issues. Selected XMP profile in motherboard BIOS and haven't looked back.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Will be buying again when it is time to upgrade to 16GB. I like the look of the blue heat spreaders.

Capable little processor

Cons: None

Solid Motherboard

Pros: Installation and setup was a breeze. Zero issues with it so far.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Purchased to use as the base of a system with room to grow. I need a new computer but didn't have the funds at the time to build the gaming rig I wanted. Currently running a i3-4130 with 8GB of G.SKILL Ripjaw X DDR3-1600 with other components I had at home. Planning to upgrade to an i7 and dedicated graphics in the near future.

Very impressed for the price

Acer H6 Series H226HQLbid Black 21.5" HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor, IPS Panel 250 cd/m2 ACM 100,000,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Just received the monitor today, and I was blown away by it. The only adjustment I had to make was dropping the brightness. Colors look accurate; no actual measurements, but I have a pretty good eye.

Cons: Menu buttons are a bit of a pain to use, but it isn't like you need to spend much time adjusting anything.
