Fast

Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD1
Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD1

Pros: Lightning quick. Stable. Tiny. Price

Cons: Every so often on a boot, it will not show up at post and will result in a bootmgr error, a restart or two will rectify this. I can't detract too much for this because I don't know exactly what the culprit is. It may be my 990-fxa gd80v2, the drive, or something completely different. (Bios and drivers are current)

Overall Review: Great drive, if anyone has any insight on my issue that I mentioned. That would be swell

Great board

MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Stable. Good layout. Pretty color scheme if you care. A lot of nice features. On board buttons and debug LEDs / temp readout is fantastic. Decent on board audio. Works great with 16gb 1866 Kingston ram, crucial m4 128gb, western digital 1.5tb black, fx-8150 and an old 8800 gts

Cons: It's thirty dollars cheaper now than when I bought it

Overall Review: Buy it. No issues like others have mentioned with on board audio

Pros: Fast. Fast. Fast. And price? Who needs intel.

Cons: Runs warm. Get something like the hyper 212 plus (if you have the room) and some arctic silver 5. It's ten dollars cheaper now than when I bought it

Overall Review: Buy this already

Great

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Silent, does its job very well, easy enough to install, sturdy even though it doesn't really look it. Cheap.

Cons: Huge, I have a full atx case and there is about 3/4" to spare between side door and top of unit. My case door has a fan mounted to it and that fan currently rests on the cooler.

Overall Review: If you have the room, don't waste any more time thinking about it.

Decent Camera

CASIO EXILIM EX-S5 Black 10.1 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
CASIO EXILIM EX-S5 Black 10.1 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: 10mp, sleek, feels nice in your hand, easy to operate, easy video, a hundred bucks

Cons: pictures are grainy, (even with manual white balance, iso turned down, etc).

Overall Review: doesn't take the best pictures but for the price you can't really go wrong, hence my four egg rating.
