LG Ultragear 27GL850-B 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms GTG 144Hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort USB 3.0 Hub AMD FreeSync NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible HDR 10 Nano IPS Gaming Monitor
LG Ultragear 27GL850-B 27" 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 1ms GTG 144Hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort USB 3.0 Hub AMD FreeSync NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible HDR 10 Nano IPS Gaming Monitor

Pros: - Everything people say it is. Fast, smooth, and great colors. - OSD is easy to get around and doesn't look too bad either. - Handles console refresh rates perfectly at "Normal" overdrive. (perhaps set to "sRGB" color mode though, really blows out the reds on ps4)

Cons: Quite unfortunately, it developed a dead pixel three days after arriving. Given the setup went perfectly and there were no defects upon arrival, I threw away all retail packaging so I can't return or replace. Pity. In terms of cons when it's working properly, the black levels aren't great. It's an IPS though, so what are ya gonna do.

Overall Review: I came from a BenQ XL2730Z, so the move back to IPS was a good one for colors alone. Motion handling was a big step up as well, not expected at all since I was on TN. EDIT: This monitor has developed two more very stubborn dead pixels since I originally posted this, and IPS glow has also gotten worse somehow??? If I was unlucky then oh boy did I draw the short straw. Score has been updated to reflect this, which is a shame as it came highly recommended by everyone. I no longer recommend this monitor.

GIGABYTE M6900 Metal Black 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Optical 3200 dpi Gaming Mouse
GIGABYTE M6900 Metal Black 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Optical 3200 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Switchable DPI (and you can change the DPI of each level) Programmable buttons Nice fit in the hand

Cons: Rubber grippy surface on the sides can get a little gross if you have sweaty hands Mouse wheel tilt often sets off the mouse wheel click

Overall Review: Solid gaming mouse for the money by a reputable company. Useful software as well. High enough DPI for a 1440p monitor as long as you're not looking for anything blazing fast, but if you were, you wouldn't be looking at such a cheap mouse. It did need a mousepad to work properly though, for your consideration.

MSI H81M-E33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI H81M-E33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great dirt cheap mobo Should fit all needs of someone on a tight budget

Cons: Doesn't play nice with an attempted Pentium K OC (bootloop or BSOD) Doesn't have USB 3.0 headers

Overall Review: For the price, there are far few better mobos out there, just be wary of using this to OC a Pentium.
