Most Favorable Review

Booted right up

G.SKILL Phoenix III FM-25S3-120GBP3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal 7mm Solid State Drive (SSD)
G.SKILL Phoenix III FM-25S3-120GBP3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal 7mm Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast and sleek, came with the 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. can't go wrong with G.skill or Samsung SSD.

Cons: None

good case if you can catch it on sale

Pros: Roomy and light but don't feel cheap.

Cons: None

Best CPU for the buck

Intel Core i5-3570K - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop Processor - BX80637I53570K
Intel Core i5-3570K - Core i5 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Intel HD Graphics 4000 Desktop Processor - BX80637I53570K

Pros: bottom line is that it blows my FX-4100 out of the water.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Nothing wrong with my AMD system I have but at the time didn't have the cash to go Intel.

Best Board for the buck

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Booted right up with no issues. recognized ram as DDR3 1600 right off the bat. recognized the i5-3570k CPU. Everything you need and non of the junk.

Cons: none as of right now.

Overall Review: I have never been a real big Asus fan but they just got me as a long time buyer. This is only my second board from them and both boards are strong. First board was bought last year for a FX-4100.

Just as good as OtterBox, if not better.

Pros: Protects the phone well, rubber casing doesn't slide off like the commuter otterbox did on my iPhone 4. Plastic shield isn't flimsy.

Cons: not really a con but it fits so snug might take a couple of minutes to get the buttons lined up right, not really a con just a fact.

Overall Review: I found that leaving the rubber inside the black casing and sliding the phone up from the bottom worked the best to the case on the phone.

IMO best bank for your back...

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-3662-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-3662-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Performs excellent, maxed out most of the games I played. WoW avg is 90 with everything maxed with 8x multisampling and 16x texture filtering, drops down to around 55-65 in busy areas. Maxed out Diablo 3 with no hitches.

Cons: Only thing that really sucks about this card is the $300+ price tag, but it's well worth it.

Overall Review: I am running this card with a AMD FX-4100 so I might be getting bottlednecked just a bit cause of the CPU but I still can run any game out there with more than average framerates. Will do a follow up when I upgrade to a i5 ivy-bridge CPU next month.
