Can handle anything

MSI N760-2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
MSI N760-2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I bought one of these cards to hold me over for 4k resolution until I made a decision on what to use for 3x SLI configuration. I am running this in a single card configuration with 4 screens attached, 2 in 4k and 2 in 1080p but playing Arma 3, BF4 in high resolution and detail is no problem with this card (1080p not in 4k due to 30Hz 4k TV limitation)

Cons: Looks, didn't do much shopping when I bought this one and could have some more appealing fan and cooling. (Works great, just the looks)

Most Critical Review

Not worth the money

Logitech G510s Illuminated USB Gaming Keyboard

Pros: the layout of this keyboard is nice and customization options are a plus.

Cons: The one I received the space bar was very sensitive and kept double and triple spacing, also the other letters seemed to respond indifferently that made it very hard to write on. The display was nice but very limited to only a few applets due to the type of display. I couldn't deal with it any longer and returned it for the G19s that I highly recommend spending the extra money on.

Nice keyboard if it would last

Logitech 920-004985 G19s Keyboard
Logitech 920-004985 G19s Keyboard

Pros: Key layout is very nice and buttons feel solid. Screen is a nice gadget and lot of plugins are available such as TS and others. Extra key programming is a plus for game options or for certain desktop functions.

Cons: This was a replacement for my previous G510 that had a couple of button issues. This keyboard worked solid for a while but now right side keys are sticking (no coke spills in my office) and I have to wait 2 seconds after pushing the left caps button so it releases caps. If it wasn't sitting on my nice glass desk I would beat the * of it and hate using it now.

Have fun troubleshooting OC RAM

ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS M5A97 EVO AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Like the UEFI BIOS, makes it very easy to overclock if you can get past the picky component list to support your settings

Cons: Spend $500+ on memory trying to get it to run beyond 1333MHz with 16GB but this board simply refuses it even with memory on the QVL. So don't believe the specs, I spent weeks with ASUS support trying to get it to work and even attempted a RMA but still no more than 4GB at speeds over standard which is the reason I bought this board. Also found it to be a little unstable at OC memory speed.

Overall Review: Nice layout of the board and if ran at standard specs appears to be the usual quality of ASUS. Just highly disapointed in the dreamy geek specs that don't work, therfore my first ASUS product only receiving 2 eggs instead of 5

Does the job

Leadtek HDTV200 H TV TUNER
Leadtek HDTV200 H TV TUNER

Pros: The card is very inexpensive and does a great job compared to other cards I've seen that are a driver nightmare. This card works great on XP, Vista, and even 7 without doing much work. Setup and channel search is very easy and only takes a couple of minutes.

Cons: I don't know who had the bright idea to have the TV software focus on the primary screen without a chance of moving it to a secondary, so if you watch TV you'll have to do your work on one of your other screens chasing your task bar and icons.

Overall Review: Functions take a minute to figure out but no biggie.
