Pros: Super fast! Good for gaming and video editing!

Cons: None!

Overall Review: Had to change my BIOS settings to recognize 1600 instead of 1333.

Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1600ELK

Pros: Increased the WEI "memory" number rom 7.6 to 7.8. I had 8GB, now I have 16GB in my PC. Video editing will be a breeze.

Cons: None

Great USB stick

Pros: Sturdy build. Nice and fast transfer speeds.

Cons: Rubber construction attracts some lint.

Overall Review: Corsair is a reliable brand!

Love this monitor!

Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1
Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1

Pros: Great picture, beautiful colors, nice options for changing to various modes (i.e. "Scenery," "Game,"Theater," etc.), and nice speakers. Don't listen to the picky critics who say bad things about the speakers. The speakers are great. It's not your home theater system, so it's not going to crank out the sweetest sounds at the highest pitches and lowest tones. I play FIFA 2011 on my PC, and I have to turn the volume down sometimes because it gets a little loud. FIFA 11 looks better on my new monitor than it does on the xBox 360. That may be partly because of my new video card and PC specs. Can't wait for FIFA 12! All the extra inputs make this monitor so versatile. I can use the HDMI input for my desktop, VGA for a separate desktop, and I still have room for another computer (via DVI).

Cons: The stand is a little wobbly. If I type hard on my keyboard, the screen wobbles slightly, but I imagine there is something I could do to prevent that.

Overall Review: Granted there are better monitors out there, but not for the low price. Way to go ASUS!

Awesome case! I love it!

Pros: Where do I begin? The people who knock off an egg or two are far too picky! This is a great case! Tons of room for peripherals and HDs, great for cable management. The little rubber grommets are such a cool feature. The tool-less installation of peripherals and HDs is awesome. COOL - looks cool and runs very cool. Comes with 5 fans. Three of them are blue LED. They look awesome behind the black grills. I love how the case is sleek and black. My wife didn't like that the case was a little big, but at least it doesn't look like something from outer space. With my PSU blue LED fan and two more fans I purchased, I now have 7 fans (not including the CPU fan). There is still room for one more slim fan on the backside of the CPU (behind MOBO). Man this case is sweet!

Cons: None!

Love it! Looks really cool!

ASUS P8P67 LE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It's the nicest motherboard I've ever had! The blue colors are so cool. Took me some time to get the stupid flimsy metal piece to cover all the I/O stuff. Runs cool, and works great! I love the BIOS features. Far more options than I've ever seen!

Cons: Wish that it had SLI and more capability with 2 GPUs, but it's a great price. Have to spend more to get more. The 2nd PCIe slot runs at x4 with a second GPU - Crossfire only.

Overall Review: I didn't buy the MOBO for gaming, so I have no complaints. I primarily bought it for video editing. Combined with my other items, my new build cuts through video like a hot knife through butter!
