Killer Card

PNY GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card VCGGTX560TXPB
PNY GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card VCGGTX560TXPB

Pros: Great card runs everything at max settings, came with a twenty dollar rebate and a free mafia 2 and just cause 2 coupons.

Cons: Almost too big for my Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced case (and that's a fairly big case). Make sure it'll fit before you buy it.

Overall Review: This and my i5-2500k @ 4.4Ghz + 8Gb 1600Mhz ddr3 makes one hell of a gaming machine!

Most Critical Review

Overpriced

XFX HD-597X-ENFN Radeon HD 5970 BLACK 4GB 512 (256 x 2)-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card
XFX HD-597X-ENFN Radeon HD 5970 BLACK 4GB 512 (256 x 2)-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Eyefinity 6 Edition Video Card

Pros: Currently #3 in the fastest graphic cards list! A monster that will run any game at the highest resolution with the highest possible settings without breaking a sweat!

Cons: The most expensive card you could buy, makes no sense to get it. The HD 6990 and GTX 590 are both cheaper, faster and newer cards. If you pay more than six hundred for this you're overpaying.

Overall Review: I'm rating it 2stars based on it's nine hundred+ price at the moment. It's just ridiculously overpriced at the moment. Don't get fooled into buying this without doing a little research on how it compares to HD 6990 and GTX 590!

VERY SOLID SOLID DRIVE !!!

Pros: Fast and reliable, i've had it for 2 years and it's still going strong as the day I got it

Cons: none

Pros: A good gaming mouse, precise, fits well in the palm of my hand, does what it's supposed to!

Cons: none so far

get i7-2600k instead

Intel Core i7-2700K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623i72700K
Intel Core i7-2700K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623i72700K

Pros: A very good CPU.

Cons: It's the same CPU as i7-2600k (a slight 3% overclock over it!) but $50 more expensive, save your self some money and get the i7-2600k or i5-2500k!

Overall Review: I don't own this CPU, I own the i5-2500k and i have it overclocked at 4,5Ghz (can go much higher), it's just not worth spending the extra money for the i7-2700k, just do some research!

Really good case

COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN3 CM690 II Basic Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN3 CM690 II Basic Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a really good case, big and spacious, quality built, feels sturdy, very good cooling, enough space for a big after market cooler (Cooler Master Hyper N520) and a big video card (GTX 560 Ti). Cool looking neon light on front with an on/off swith.

Cons: I really can't think of any.

Overall Review: I got mine at a retail store near my house (same price), bought the rest of my components off newegg.
