Great Gaming Graphics card

XFX Radeon R9 390 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation XXX OC Video Card R9-390P-8256
XFX Radeon R9 390 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation XXX OC Video Card R9-390P-8256

Pros: Card is quiet with a very faint coil whine on high load. It can play 95% of my steam games on the highest settings both in linux and windows. Tested with Catalyst and Radeon drivers under linux and Catalyst Control Center in Windows without issues.

Cons: This is a Sea Island Card, so if you're going to use this on a linux system, the new amdgpu drivers WILL NOT WORK without compiling your own linux kernel, and even then it's hit and miss. If you want to use the amdgpu driver, get a R9 380, R9 380X, Fury, Fury X, or Fury Nano.

Massive but well built

LIAN LI PC-A61B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
LIAN LI PC-A61B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: - All aluminum case is really sexy - Supplied fans push a lot of air - Amazing cable management with lots of room - Modular drive bays, including the 5.25" bays - Lots and Lots of extra screws and items for the case - The top 240mm plate for fans or an AIO is removable, making installing them a breeze - Washable fan filters!

Cons: - The top mounted USB 3.0 and HD Audio wires could of been better routed in the case - The standoffs for the motherboard are really tight, it was a pain to install my motherboard - No Y-Connector for the front fans, need to buy one if you don't have enough system fan headers - Installing an AIO on the top can restrict access to some of the cable grommets - The filter for the top 240mm thing isn't magnetic like the one on the front of the case, so it can get bent and warped if not installed correctly - THIS CASE DOES NOT COME WITH THE SIDE WINDOW LIKE IT SAYS IT DOES (-1 egg)

Overall Review: I didn't realize how massive this case was until the box was at my doorstep. However, despite its massiveness, it's a great case, and I would recommend anyone looking for a case that will last a couple of builds to pick up a Lian Li. I'm glad that I picked it up. My motherboard did not have enough fan headers for my AIO, the two front fans and the rear fan and it would have been nice if Lian Li supplied a Y-Connector alongside the Molex adaptors for the fans.

Great while she lasted

Gateway Laptop AMD Athlon X2 QL-64 (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 3200 15.6" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit NV5215u
Gateway Laptop AMD Athlon X2 QL-64 (2.10GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 3200 15.6" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit NV5215u

Pros: Great all around laptop. It did everything I wanted it to do and more. It when from a school computer to a general internet computer to my current development laptop with Arch Linux. When I bought it, it played every game I tried decently. This thing also takes abuse like a champ. I dropped it, spilled water and kool-aid on it, overheated it many, many times. Up until today, she ran like a heavenly being outside this realm.

Cons: Dust Magnet from hell. Didn't age very well with Windows (Windows stopped booting after year 3)

Overall Review: The HDD is finally starting to die. I ordered parts to fix my desktop, and I'm going to put this thing to rest soon. It's been a great laptop, and I will recommend the NV series to anyone looking for a laptop.

Great combo deal!

BELKIN Chocolate/Gecko Green 15.6" Energy Collection Slim Laptop Backpack Model F8N079-CGG-DL
BELKIN Chocolate/Gecko Green 15.6" Energy Collection Slim Laptop Backpack Model F8N079-CGG-DL

Pros: I love the compartments, I can fit everything I want into it, like my Gateway NV5125 laptop, power supply, and some network cords and games. Easy to load/unload Lappy. The colors were my school colors, so I liked them

Cons: It's small! That isn't really a problem for me since I have space saver cords and things, but if you want to carry more than the laptop, I suggest getting a bigger bag.

Overall Review: If your wanting a small bag just to carry around the bare minimum, this bag is for you!
