Great Little Keyboard - Everything I Needed

Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: -Compact, light and easy to transport -Quick, responsive keys -Noticed a difference over my old keyboard immediately. -No flashy lights... Thank goodness

Cons: -No 10 key, but that is a what a compact keyboard is!!! Can people not read?? This is not a con, this is the product... Jeez people.

Overall Review: Awesome little keyboard. I noticed a big difference in my gameplay almost immediately after switching out my old G15 (RIP buddy). This is a great buy, and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a compact mechanical keyboard. No stupid lights, or flashy design. Perfect for someone looking for actual performance and not a bunch of fluff....

Great SSD

SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD120BW
SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD120BW

Pros: I have had this SSD for quite some time now, and have formatted several times to re-install the OS, or for other reasons... This SSD has out-performed my expectations. Great choice.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Transfer rate is still pretty good in comparison to some of the newer SSD's.

Great PSU for the price

Rosewill Quark Series 650W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply with LED Indicator, 80 Plus Platinum, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready - Quark-650
Rosewill Quark Series 650W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply with LED Indicator, 80 Plus Platinum, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready - Quark-650

Pros: This PSU is a fantastic choice for a budget build. It's full modular which is great for cable management, and the energy consumption is very small. I would consider a 650W overkill for the build I used it in, but it was actually cheaper than the 450W I was looking at. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: It looks nice, and came with a great Velcro bag to hold all the extra cables.

Perfect Budget GPU

EVGA GeForce GT 740 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card 01G-P4-3742-KR

Pros: Great stand alone card. For the price you pay, you get a lot. In comparison to other similarly priced cards, it out performs almost everything. Great choice for a budget build.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

Overall Review: Keep it well ventilated, and have a good airflow plan, and you will get a lot of play time out of this card.

Solid CPU

Intel Core i3-3220T - Core i3 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1155 35W Intel HD Graphics 2500 Desktop Processor                                                                                   - BX80637i33220T
Intel Core i3-3220T - Core i3 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1155 35W Intel HD Graphics 2500 Desktop Processor - BX80637i33220T

Pros: Very dependable little chip. For the money, this is by far the best CPU you can get. You aren't going to build a super computer with this thing, but if you are looking to build an average gaming machine, or even a solid work computer on a budget, this chip blows everything else out of the water. Super dependable and one of the few 1155 socket CPU's you can still purchase new and un-opened. Very good choice for almost any build. I build this machine for a friend who plays a lot of Diablo, and other action RPG's and he absolutely loves it. It can play D3 on max settings without even breaking a sweat. Super solid chip. Would recommend to everyone.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

Overall Review: Great chip for the money.

Great Choice for Memory

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR
G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR

Pros: I originally purchased this exact product years ago for my main gaming rig. It has performed phenomenally for years. I have had various different setups over the years, and this is by far the most dependable RAM I have ever had. I recently purchased another set, in order to utilize some spare parts I had to build a machine for a friend. I had a couple of 1155 socket Mobo's laying around and decided to go with this RAM again since it performed so well for my main rig. And it has confirmed my already high expectations for it. Extremely good product.

Cons: NONE.

Overall Review: Very solid product. Would recommend to everyone.
