Emergerd! What a beast.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card FX-785A-CDFC

Pros: -Whisper quiet (I also have some sound dampening foam in my case..so I can't hear it at all) -It's stunning, sleek, beautiful. -It's really, really cool (Dat cold temperature) -buttersmooths in max settings in all of my games (Metro, Crysis,Skyrim etc) -Free Far Cry 3, wut!? -Free shipping (sorry not anymore) -Crazyface warranty, but register in 30 days YO!

Cons: -Should have bought a 7970? (Dat poverty)

Overall Review: I sold me GTX 670 FTW to buy this and provide for half the funds for a Dyson vacuum. Anyway, I can't tell the difference in-game. I've maxed out all of em' and can't tell...yet. My GTX 670 sounded and looked like a jetplane. I was afraid the 'downgrade' would be significant, but I can barely tell!

actually works well!

SilverStone Silent Foam SF01, Sound Dampening Acoustic EP0M Foam Material, Black, 21"x15", 4mm thick, 2 pcs

Pros: Reduced vibration and whoosh noise from my already silent noctua case fans. Actually used an acoustic measuring device, reduced sound from 4-5 decibels.

Cons: Sticky as heck! Be patient when installing. Get a razor or exact-o knife. Need to get two kits for a full ATX tower, but that does not concern me, just a heads up for the big towers!

Overall Review: My aluminum Lian li a05fna case makes a sudden 'thud' noise instead of a 'pang' and is noticeably quieter.

FAST

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: Runs cool under any load (I have a small form factor noctua CPU cooler installed) gaming temps max I've reached is 39 degrees. Oh, and this is the best ivy bridge i5..haven't oc'd it..I really don't need to..it's fast enough!

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Haven't tried it with the stock cooler..but what serious gamer uses a stock cooler anyway?

excellent board

ASUS P8Z77-M PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Has everything I need and a great bios and many fan hookups. Two sata 6 gb/s ports. USB 3.0. Virtu MVP compatible.

Cons: As mentioned below, poor sata port placement, especially in my case, where the PSU goes in the front of the case(Lian li a05fna)

Overall Review: Awesome board, especially for a m-ATX.

It's just beautiful.

LIAN LI PC-A05FNA Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
LIAN LI PC-A05FNA Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I wanted to hide a motherbeast of a gaming machine in a sleek, professional, and minimalist enclosure. It's lightweight yet strong like bull. The shape is very unique as well, it's short, long, and a little wide. It's essentially the corgi of computer cases.

Cons: Logo at the front, but taggers gonna tag.

Overall Review: This is not your regular piece of horker meat, this is the real deal.

You can just feel the quality

Case Fans
Case Fans

Pros: Silent as heck. The bearings are amazing. I like the way they look. I actually do. I took the stock fans off my Lian Li A05fna case because I didn't like the way they felt and looked, and I wanted to make a silent PC build. You can tell straight away just by spinning the blades with your fingers that these are way better quality. Replaced my two Lian Li stock fans with two of these, because I want silence and quality

Cons: Price, but you really get what you pay for in this case, and I have absolutely no regrets.

Overall Review: If you have money to throw around and want silence and quality, get then these are for you. I wish they had brown LED's to go with these..(joking)
