Most Favorable Review

Amazing

MSI Radeon X1800XT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card RX1800XT-VT2D512E LITE

Pros: Best bang for the buck on the market. Got this after my X1900XT failed and for >$xxx cheaper, no noticeable differences. Runs great with the Zalman VF700-CU AM cooler

Cons: None

Overall Review: This is a great card for the enthusiast that wants top of the line performance for $xxx less.

Most Critical Review

I am astounded by the utter lack of customer service

GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS GAMING 7-OP LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 ATX Motherboard with 32GB Intel Optane Memory
GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS GAMING 7-OP LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 ATX Motherboard with 32GB Intel Optane Memory

Pros: It looks cool

Cons: It never worked. I installed it, and it was a no go. I did all the usual trouble shooting and it was a bad mobo. I RMA it, and they tell me I need to pay to ship it to them. For a piece of equipment that was faulty and never worked. Think about that. That should NEVER happen.

Overall Review: Gigabyte will never get another sale from me and I would encourage anyone else to avoid such shoddy service as well.

Not a pleasing result

XFX P1-650X-CAH9 650 W ATX12V v2.2 / ESP12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It looks cool

Cons: I plugged this bad boy in and 3 days later it had absolutely died. I am lucky it only took itself with it instead of my system. Plugged in another PSU and all was well with the world. My system is about 150 watts below this PSU's 650 so it's not like I overloaded it.

Overall Review: Had to change the title of my review apparently since my real sentiments were not allowed.

Very nice

Pros: As has been stated, this case is extremely well put together for the price. It looks great, feels sturdy and I really do like the carrying handle on top. I used this case to build my 2 older children a new system and organization in the case was a breeze.

Cons: None really

Awesome case!

Pros: This is my favorite case of any I have had, and I have played around with a bunch. The material is strong but very lightweight. The cable organization is made very easy with the layout. 6 eggs if possible.

Cons: None.

Love it!

Pros: Layout is great, plenty of USB connections. Have used a lot of Gigabyte mobos in the past, but this one has got me sold on considering ASRock in the future.

Cons: None off the top of my head.

Overall Review: I have not played around with the OCing yet, but with the i5 I have in here, I am sure it will be fun.
