Pros: -battery life -size, shape, and weight -sturdiness -build quality -button placement
Cons: -software needed for maximum customization -glider pad edges attract dust -medium dpi range (max 2500) -button placement
Overall Review: The dpi is completely acceptable for single monitor setups, but dual monitor users might find the need to pick up and readjust the mouse. The middle lower and back lower thumb keys are extremely easy to use for my hand size, while the others are a bit less convenient in comparison. They are still very easy to use and offer nice feedback. Overall wonderful mouse for gaming and working.
VisionTek Radeon HD7750
Pros: *Reasons to Buy small form factor low power consumption good reliability no external power needed
Cons: *Reasons to Pass limited memory
Overall Review: If you're building an entry level mini-itx, this is it. The card is ridiculously small and doesn't require a connector from your power supply. The thing is, it doesn't require power because it doesn't have that much power. With 1 gigabyte of GDDR5 ram it can run most F2P's on high, but triple-A titles take a hit when trying to go over 1080p at medium. The card has 1 HDMI and 1 DVI, but if you plan on gaming, you'll only be using one of them. It's an entry level card for the casual user who needs more than integrated graphics.
CMStorm Quickfire Rapid - Brown
Pros: *Reasons to Buy mechanical quiet actuation durable cherry MX switches
Cons: *Reasons to Pass newer version available for only slightly more
Overall Review: It's a great keyboard for those transitioning from membrane or chiclet keyboards. The cherry mx brown's have a good balance between feedback and quietness, with it only making sound when you bottom out. This keyboard is really good! But the successor to this keyboard is probably even better, with only a marginally higher cost. If you really need a keyboard, this'll do great, but if you have a tiny bit more cash laying around, go for an upgrade.
