Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan

Pros: pumps a lot of air! and they are quite if you turn down the speed!

Cons: when on full blast my case flies around the room like an airplane, cause i have 2 of these things, so be careful ;)

Overall Review: GREAT GREAT GREAT! buy them!

Great case for the money

Diablotek REACTION CPA-8817D3 Black INSIDE BLACK Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case USB 3.0 max VGA LONG CARD
Diablotek REACTION CPA-8817D3 Black INSIDE BLACK Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case USB 3.0 max VGA LONG CARD

Pros: Great packaging. Looks nice. Lights aren't annoying. Fit a Scythe heat sink in it... the thing is MASSIVE. Room for cable management. Mobo tray has an open back so you can take the heatsink off without removing the mobo. Paint isn't to bad either. CHEAAAAPP!

Cons: Very flimsy front panel (the metal behind the plastic). I was worried I would break it when installing fan controllers. However, this makes it light and it's fine once the plastic is back on. Also my board did have a USB3 connector, so I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with that connector. Can't use the toolfree drive installation with the removable panel. All in all I was very impressed, just a few minor issues. I would buy again.

Overall Review: Great case for a budget gaming rig. Diablotek case helped me beat Diablo! :P

Awesome just what I wanted

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card  ( 11201-00-20G)
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card ( 11201-00-20G)

Pros: Cheap, and can play diablo 3 on highest settings without an issue. Stays really cool. 35C idle and up to 49C after 8 hours of gaming. This, While being overclocked!

Cons: none.

Overall Review: This card should allow you to play anything you want on high settings without braking the bank.

Power effecient quiet.

Pros: No issues yet, super quiet, and powers everything well!

Cons: none

Overall Review: I was worried going for a 400watt supply but was pleased in the end. using a hd7700 with AMD 4100fx (overclocked em both) runs fine :D

Faster than i3 and cheaper

AMD FX-4100 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor - FD4100WMGUSBX
AMD FX-4100 - FX-Series Zambezi Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor - FD4100WMGUSBX

Pros: I went against most reviews and bought this chip. Apparently the intel i3 was supposed to be a better buy. Most games are bottlenecking on the GPU these days so I decided to go for an AMD setup which saved me a couple bucks. It was a great decision. Not only does my system bench higher than my friends i3 system (same gpu hd7700) it also runs games like D3 without lag... that's all I wanted.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Overclocks easily, stays cool no issue.

Overclocks well

AMD Performance Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model AP38G1338U2K
AMD Performance Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model AP38G1338U2K

Pros: Decent timings, overclocks to the next spec without an issue. Actually scores faster than my friends ram on the same system, perhaps there is some credibility behind being "made for amd".

Cons: None, rock solid.

Overall Review: 970 board, 4100fx works well with this ram.
