Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD2
Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD2

Pros: Got this when it was only $129.99! Was a great decision. -Firmware was up to date -Installation was easy. -Took me less then 10 minutes to install Windows 7 Ultimate -Boots up Windows with all my start up programs in less then 10 seconds. -FAST!!!!

Cons: -Didn't come with a mounting bracket. Not a big deal, since these don't get as hot as regular hard drives, I just set it on my CD drive.

Overall Review: I used 2 day shipping, but it took 2 weeks to arrive at my home. Not Newegg's fault, UPS lost it during transit. Newegg credited me with 10$ for the troubles and had a replacement sent out. Proof that Neweggs customer service is amazing.

Glad I took the risk

Razer Goliathus Fragged Gaming Mouse Mat - Speed Edition - Alpha L
Razer Goliathus Fragged Gaming Mouse Mat - Speed Edition - Alpha L

Pros: Smooth and very well designed. I've gone through so many mousepads and this is easily the best one I've used yet. I was previously using a SteelSeries Qck+, but it was old and peeling too much. I was hesitant to go with this, but glad I did.

Cons: Doesn't feel the same if you rotated it vertically. I dont have much space on my table so wanted to have it vertical, but it doesnt feel as smooth. Difference was very noticeable on my palm and wrist. Not really a big deal, i just have to slide it under my keyboard and everything is ok.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Cheap and and very reliable.

Cons: Was showing up as 1333 on installation, but a quick change in the bios fixed that. Just set it to 1600, 9-9-9-24 and 1.5v.

Overall Review: Perfect for what I needed.

Pros: Amazing CPU Overclocks like a champ(w/ aftermarket cooler of course) Cheap

Cons: Stock cpu fan is terrible.

Overall Review: If you're a gamer and deciding whether to get this or the i7-2600k or even wait for the ivy bridge. Just stop wasting time and get this. There's only a 5% increase in performance with the new Ivy bridge chips, so theres no point to wait.

Pros: I was fortunate enough to buy this before the price went up. Got it when they were 149.99$. -Runs my I5-2500k Perfect -BIOS is easy to navigate and configure. -Overclocks like a beast. -Comes with a USB 3.0 front slot for those who are using old cases without a front USB 3.0 port. -future proof pcie 3.0

Cons: -SATA ports on the board are poorly positioned. I hate how they are facing to the side instead of facing me. Makes installation on new SATA devices pretty difficult. -RAM slots are too close to the CPU. Problem with that is, if you have a big CPU fan, it'll hit the ram sticks. I'm using a CM Hyper 212+ and it covers up a bit of the first ram slot.

Great sound, confortable

TRITTON Detonator Stereo Headset For Xbox 360, by Mad Catz - Black
TRITTON Detonator Stereo Headset For Xbox 360, by Mad Catz - Black

Pros: Using this for MW3, working very well for me. Recently had a Tritton Trigger, but exchanged it for this Detonator. Sounds are crisp and clear. Comfortable - played for many hours without pain. Big ear cups to cover entire ear. Headset feels solid and built well. Volume controls are nice and easy to use. SVM works perfectly. Clear mic

Cons: -Mic is too long. Needs to be shorter. -Wiring packaging... All the wires and adapters are just stuffed into a small paper box. -Might be just me, but the wires to the xbox are way too long. I'm not very far from the screen when I play games so I have to roll up the wires and shorten them.

Overall Review: Overall a great buy for me. I'm not a fan of turtle beaches so I decided to go with these. For those who are deciding between these and the Tritton triggers, I suggest to go with this. I had the triggers before these and they weren't that great. Earcups on the trigger are insanely small and hurt your ears even after 20 minutes use.
