SAMSUNG S27C450D Matte Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The monitor looks very nice and the colors were good out of the box so little calibration was needed. The stand is weighted so it is very sturdy.

Cons: The "Magic Rotation" is not automatic... you still have to right click and then rotate the screen. At first, it would rotate both of my screens since I have a dual setup, but after some tweaking, I got it to work for just one.

I don't use the hotkeys and I get pop-ups saying that the current key-bindings are already used. You have to install the Magic Tune software and it doesn't work on Win7 x64. I'll have to see if there is a different version.

Other Thoughts: When unpacking the monitor stand, be careful when you unpin the post. It will shoot out very quickly.

ASUS P9X79 LE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with USB BIOS

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This board supports the latest i7s, spacious, well organized layout and has plenty of RAM slots.

Cons: I just wish it had more SATA ports. I have the 2 6Gbps hooked to a few TB hard drives, and have filled the rest with peripherals like my xdock and DVD drives. I don't have any left if I need another hard drive! I'll have to sacrifice something...

MSI Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I was originally going to get a FirePro card for working with Adobe CS6, but this card was a better deal and works great. Applying Filters and such is nearly instant. Wouldn't know how it performs for games.

Cons: none. I don't even hear it.
