TERRIBLE FOR FINGER GRIPPING
Pros: Good price, it's a nice weight, tracks well, everything works fine except...
Cons: The shape of this thing is seriously awful if you finger grip like I do. This mouse is really made for you to wrap your whole hand around it and I just could not get used to it. By finger grip of course I mean I pick up the mouse with just the pads of my thumb and 2 little fingers. The problem is on the right side of it where my little fingers had nothing to grab onto bc of the extreme contour. I had to pretty much stick my fingers all the way underneath the mouse so I could pick it up. I mean, you might love this mouse especially for the price but you really should try the grip in person at a local store, or of another contoured mouse similar to this one. Personally I wasted $13 on it.
Pros: I don't know why I waited this long to get a controller for my PC. It has drastically improved my experience with games like Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, and Dirt3. I love having no wires and I use rechargeable batteries to help save the environment. I just wish I had another for guests but don't want to spend the cash just yet.
Pros: I am extremely pleased with this card. It overclocked it with a 550W power supply and haven't had any issues. It stays cool, it's quiet, and after overclocking (which is simple to do), it has similar performance to a 6870. I didn't think it was too big at all. I could probably push it even harder but haven't had the need to, as I'm running pretty much everything on highest settings (along with a i5-2500k). Definitely better to get this one rather than the overclocked version because you can do that yourself. Oh and I got the Dirt3 promo to work, just took a couple days to get a new code since these promo codes were originally stolen.
Cons: I just noticed that 6870 cards are in a similar price range now, not sure if that would change anything if I were to buy one today but it looks like there's not much difference between the 2 cards and I get great performance out of this one after overclocking.
Pros: This thing simply flies. Very stable overclocker, though it's been handling everything I throw at it with ease. I don't think I've even approached the potential of this CPU and I'm so glad I spent a couple extra bucks to get the 2500k over 23xx or vanilla 2500.
Cons: The heat sink was a pain to lock into my mobo and I was really scared that it wasn't making full contact. Turned out ok though and the CPU seems to stay plenty cool.
Overall Review: BUY IT
