It is a great keyboard!

Logitech Media Elite 967559-0403 Black 102 Normal Keys 18 Function Keys USB or PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard

Pros: The keyboard is a full size one, with a correctly-sized "backspace" button. Get it just for that. But it also has the following buttons: calculator (which is quite useful), volume control, mute, media (to open whatever player you use), play/pause, stop, forward, reverse, e-mail, messenger, home, and favorites. These are all quite useful. The round "esc" and "f" buttons are actually nice, because the are in groups, allowing you to not have to look at the keyboard when using them. The legs put it on a nice tilt. The keys have a slight dip, which is great. Its use in gaming is unsurpassed.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: I looked at many keyboards before deciding on this. I almost bought a few dollar keyboard, but this is definitely where your money should go. I am very happy with this. It is the best keyboard I have ever used.

It works with everything

Pros: I like Windows, and it plays all my games. Plus, this OEM is very cheap. I would recommend this version to anyone building a rig. Extremely easy to install, use, activate, and register.

Cons: None.

Best drive out there.

Pros: This drive works well, and I have burned CD-Rs on it with no problems. It is very fast.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: This drive is cheap and works extremely well. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a drive that does everything but burn DVDs.

Get it now!

Pros: It boots Windows in seconds, not a minute or two. Lots of space for cheap money. It is SATA.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Overall Review: Maybe get two, since it is so cheap, and so good.

This is what you want

CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWINX2048-3200
CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWINX2048-3200

Pros: It has an easy install (obviously, just pop them in), and the sticks run great. One gig of RAM seems so slow after owning two gigs for the last few weeks.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Maybe I will get another pair. Four gigs would be nice.

Get this for gaming

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ - Athlon 64 San Diego Single-Core 2.2 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADA3700BNBOX

Pros: It helps to run games wonderfully. It is way faster than the 3400 I had on my laptop. Everything runs fast, programs like LimeWire and media players open nearly instantaneously. Oh, and it is at 30 degrees C idling, and goes to 35 C when in gaming with all settings maxed.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Overall Review: Only two games have the ability to use dual-core, Call of Duty 2 and Quake 4. CoD 2 runs with literally a few more fps, and Q4 runs with fewer fps. And if you will be playing anything else, you are going to have to turn off a core. It is a waste of time and money, so just get this amazing CPU instead of the more expensive ones that are not compatible with anything.
