GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC 6G Graphics Card, 2 x WINDFORCE Fans, 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6, GV-N166TOC-6GD Video Card
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC 6G Graphics Card, 2 x WINDFORCE Fans, 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6, GV-N166TOC-6GD Video Card

Pros: - Great value for FPS, I was surprised how this goes up against a GTX 1070. - Keeps really cool, never goes above 60C under load. - Overclocks with ease.

Cons: - It's not cheaper. - the RTX 2060 is better value if you spend a few more bucks.

Overall Review: Upgraded from an AMD R9 380 so this was a great upgrade for the price - especially considering that card was more expensive at the time. Pairs well with my Ryzen 7 1700 3.6 OC

Everything I wanted in a keyboard

Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Low Profile Red
Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Low Profile Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED, Cherry MX Low Profile Red

Pros: -Stable keys, switches -Full RGB -Easy software -Metal casing, very sturdy -Media keys and a volume scroller

Cons: -The rubber feet to angle the keyboard aren't as grippy as I'd like but the keyboard is heavy enough to not slide during use -This keyboard has two USB inputs, one for the keyboard itself and one for the USB passthrough on the back of the keyboard. I don't use the passthrough so it's just dangling behind my computer because it's not removable

Overall Review: With this being the low profile version of the Mk. II, I was worried about how the keyboard would feel but it doesn't feel much different from my previous Corsair K63. The keys are the same shape, just slimmer and lower. Overall this keyboard is gonna come down to feel. If you don't mind the low profile and faster key actuations then I recommend it. Everything else is great.

Why?

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: - Product is great and works as needed.

Cons: - For some reason this did not ship with my other parts that I ordered. While they came from Ontario, this one tube of thermal paste was shipped from BC so it took a week longer to get here. - Purolator messed up the delivery so I had to wait longer to get it.

Overall Review: It just seems weird that the warehouse in Ontario doesn't have this when it's the best selling thermal paste on the website.

It's good?

Anne Pro 2 60% Mechanical Keyboard Wired/Wireless Dual Mode Full RGB Double Shot PBT - Blue Switch
Anne Pro 2 60% Mechanical Keyboard Wired/Wireless Dual Mode Full RGB Double Shot PBT - Blue Switch

Pros: - Blue switches are nice and clicky. - Spacebar stabilizer is really good - no play at all. - Compact and has pretty RGB lights. - Two layers of FN1 and FN2 that are easily programmable.

Cons: - Set up is a huge pain. Driver installations would crash multiple times and the keyboard would not be responding. Eventually I got it to work but the software isn't the best. - RGB lighting is limited. I was expecting brighter LEDs. Unfortunately the light effects are harder to see in the day time. The lighting effects in the software are also really limited. My Windows key does not show reds or purples with the LED for some reason. The software does not allow you to change speed or direction of certain lighting effects. - Rubber feet aren't that gripp

Overall Review: - I read that the first Anne Pro had brighter lights. I can't say for certain this is a con since I never used it, but maybe something to keep in mind. Despite it's difficulty in set-up and limited lighting capabilities, the keyboard is still good. However, if you're looking for your first mechanical keyboard, I'd look elsewhere.

Good Steam Library

SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2 2280 500GB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7S500B/AM

Pros: - Installed no problem. - Partitioned without issue. - Installs and loads games quickly.

Cons: - It's not cheaper

Overall Review: - Bought on sale. - I use this for games not to boot so my experience has probably been simpler than those looking for a boot drive. I don't see the point though considering regular SSDs are about one second slower to boot Windows.

It works

Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model TLGD416G3000HC16CDC01
Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model TLGD416G3000HC16CDC01

Pros: - Runs at advertised speed. - It was cheap.

Cons: - Not compatible with my MSI B450 motherboard on their website but I still got it to run at 3000Mhz with a manual overclock.

Overall Review: I recommend this but make sure it works with your motherboard.
