Shoe insert for your hand

Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse

Pros: The best thing about this mouse is that it feels like you're suppose to use it for a long time. It doesn't remind you that there's the outdoors and that you're suppose to exercise and get things done... it just calms you and lets you know that gaming is going to be OK. That no matter how horrible your KD is, your hand will never hurt as much as your pride. The tracking is outstanding. Smoother than butter. The grips on the scroll wheel and on he sides are perfect. Just another reminder that you are in control of your mouse, not the government...not even the Illuminati can take that from you. While showing off the barrel roll maneuver, everyone's eyes will be spared. Infrared FTW. In conclusion, you can't go wrong with this mouse for this kind of price. As the French say... C'est super bon!

Cons: Can't change the lighting... *sad face*

Overall Review: I like green, so the lighting isn't a problem, but sometimes I wish it could change... just sometimes. Then I remember my hand is covering it and it really doesn't matter what color they are.

The Mother of Boards

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: There are so many features on this board that it's almost a con. This thing detecting all my hardware automatically, set it all up, and let me know with simple yet so effective LEDs next to each piece of equipment. Housing: AMD FX8350 Black Edition 8-Core 3.5 Ghz (Easily overclocked with BIOS) AMD XFX Radeon 7870 16gb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Ram 4 Year old 500gb HDD LOVE the amount of USBS

Cons: Price Tag... it was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but it fit my needs and I'll forget about the price one day.

Mmmm

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card FX-787A-CDFC

Pros: I will preface this by saying this replaced my 4870. This thing can really kick out the jams if you know what I mean. It's handled just about everything I've thrown at it. Crysis 3 = Ultra Settings Battlefield 4 Beta = Ultra Settings Assassin's Creed 3 = Ultra Settings Tomb Raider = Ultra Settings Minesweeper = Ultra Settings Windows Desktop = Ultra Settings For the most part it's quiet and gets the job done. When it's loud, what it's displaying on my screen is too distracting to care about the fan noise. It does not talk back to me or tell me what to do.

Cons: The fans can get a bit loud and this thing can run hot if you crank up everything to the max in games like Crysis 3. I've actually had it overheat, but I probably just need better cooling in my case. I bought this about 3 weeks before the price dropped... but that's what I get for being impatient and wanting a new system after 4 years of the same thing.

Overall Review: Highly recommend this for gaming. I haven't tried animation yet, but I'll get around to that when I have time again. If I had money for another, I'd totally Crossfire them.. but alas, I don't.

..Action!

Vibe Premimum 6ft HDMI 24K Gold plate V1.3 Cable male to male Full HD 1080p
Vibe Premimum 6ft HDMI 24K Gold plate V1.3 Cable male to male Full HD 1080p

Pros: Just another testament why nobody should buy cables in a store. Works perfectly and have yet to be strangled with it.

Cons: Maybe if it were 2-3 feet longer... but that's just my bad for not buying the longer version...

Overall Review: No need to spend your savings on cables, these work perfectly.

A Surge of Quality

BELKIN BV108200-06 6 ft 8 Outlets 500 J Surge Suppressor
BELKIN BV108200-06 6 ft 8 Outlets 500 J Surge Suppressor

Pros: This is the first surge protector that fits all my various sized plugs without any hassle. It ended up being just the right amount of plugs, and even has two phone jacks that I can use if I ever decide to own a home phone! I have no complaints about it whatsoever.

Cons: It's not free.

Overall Review: Great item and totally worth every penny to protect your electronics.

Scared No More

HTC One X Screen Protector w/ Mirror Effect

Pros: Keeps smudges off the screen itself.

Cons: Is not a perfect fit to the HTC One X screen area.

Overall Review: I would have given it 5 stars, but there was trouble with the first order. Received great customer support and received a second that is now in use. Still not the size I was hoping, but I'm not worried about eating Cheetos anymore.
