...almost 2 yrs still a beast.

AMD FX-6300 - FX-6000 Series Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor - FD6300WMHKBOX
AMD FX-6300 - FX-6000 Series Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor - FD6300WMHKBOX

Pros: I will make short and sweet. I bought the FX 6300 about 2 years ago and have not even overclocked. Its still riding smooth no hiccups, games run nice, mid to high settings even on latest. I have an old after market cooler on it with some master cooler Ice paste on it. It idles at 80F and 115F under stress. So do yourself a favor save your cash and get this bad boy. Put that extra cash towards a nice GC or MB and your good to go. AMD is still the way to go for budget and performance.

Cons: ,,,,Its not Santa Clause

..dropping connections.

Rosewill RNX-N300RT, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Router, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates, 2x 5dBi Fixed Antennas, DD-WRT Open Source Support
Rosewill RNX-N300RT, Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Router, IEEE 802.11b/11g/11n, Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates, 2x 5dBi Fixed Antennas, DD-WRT Open Source Support

Pros: Wasnt arm and leg. It was ok while it lasted.

Cons: ..well, I've had it for about 1 yr and half. Now its dropping connections. I had a Netgear and Linksys and both those lasted a lot longer then Rosewill. So in ways I'm disappointed. Not to mention it has limited functions in the router settings. So wont buy Rosewell router products again. Go with stability and longevity, Netgear, Likysy and Dlink.

..Great budget card.

MSI Radeon RX 480 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card RX 480 GAMING X 4G
MSI Radeon RX 480 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card RX 480 GAMING X 4G

Pros: If your a casual gamer and still want to enjoy bell and whistles in your game. THis card does the job. I've had no problems running all games in mid-maxed out settings. With the MSI afterburner the card runs a cool 30C idle, with full load about 42C. You must have Afterburner installed or 480 wont make proper use of the fans. They will turn off after start and stay like that until the card gets extremely hot. Its Frekin wierd. Afterburner also offers so much tweaks you can apply to get the most out of it, even OC if thats your deal. I got it sale and free game, so that was nice.

Cons: ...Forget the Rebate..! thats a bait scam. I never got mine. I sent everything they needed, even emailed them. NO response, no rebate. Kinda sucks.. Thats not the cards fault. So I didnt minus eggs for that.

..>Dang..!! fantastic cooling.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm (CW-9060010-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm (CW-9060010-WW)

Pros: I have this running for about a week. Im still in the middle of overclocking FX-6300. Im at 3.9 MHZ, Idle at 22C, Stress w/Prime 95 nothing over 37C. Thermal Margin is around 46F - 50F. THis is an outrageous cooler. Planning to go about 4.2 or 4.3 MHZ. Dont see why not. Before I had stock cooler. Running at 3.6 MHZ, Idle @ 46C, Load @ 60C. ....you can see huge difference. Best bet is OC with Liquid, far better results. ..UPDATE..! Still going strong almost 10 months. FX 6300 OC to 4.2. Runs at cool 80F idle. Gaming climbs to about 110F. Its still rocking. This morning it was a bit cooler, it had the CPU at 70F. So its still working great.

Cons: not any right now.

Overall Review: For the price, this is a awesome CPU cooler. I wont be using air again.

Good phones for price.

Arctic Cooling P253BT Bluetooth Headphones with Mic

Pros: I bought these just to have on a whim. I wanted something to put right on and play. These have good sound, they fit pretty good. Kinda cumbersome if you wear glasses or need reading glasses. But then again..it probably would be. ..:) They connect fairly easy, my blutooth device finds them easy. I got them for 14.00 bucks.

Cons: ..if there is a con, its the signal that sometimes comes in scratchy or glitchy. I just turn them off and turn back on and the problem does goes away.

Overall Review: Overall for the price and ease of use, this is a deal. If you want to spend more on better quality, you can do that too.

Good soldier....die hard.....

PC Power & Cooling Fatal1ty Gaming Series 550 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ550FTY)
PC Power & Cooling Fatal1ty Gaming Series 550 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ550FTY)

Pros: I bought this back in late 2011....it finally gave up the ghost. It lasted through my upgrades and overclocking. Good heavy strong.. PSU. Im a heavy user on the PC. We are talking almost 24/7 with a few hibernates in between. I basically never turn it off. THis guy put in a marathon with me for 4+yrs....:) For the price..it still rocks. If your doing a basic build or going for Everest. This guy packs a good solid.....reliable punch. You also get extras cables with a pouch caddy for storage...pretty nice.

Cons: It contains lots of wires/connectors, so just make sure you tag em away properly. ..not really a con.. just a pain..:)

Overall Review: OCZ...is a solid buy.... lasted me 4+yrs... Im talking Marathon running PC......1000's..+ hrs....
