Acer KN242HYL 23.8” IPS LCD/LED Widescreen Monitor 1920x1080, 4ms (GTG) 60Hz Refresh Rate, 16:9 Aspect Ratio, D-sub/DVI/HDMI, Tilt Capable with Built in Speakers

Pros: -Excellent picture quality (I didn't notice any ghosting or defective issues while playing games. No dead pixels)
-DVI, HDMI, and VGA options

Cons: -Does not come with a DVI cable (but comes with a an audio, VGA, & HDMI cable).

Other Thoughts: I'm sure the speakers are garbage, but I never plan on using them. I have good speakers and headphones. I wouldn't take away for a presumably poor feature that I wouldn't plan on using good or bad.

I already use my GPU HDMI for HDTV and I wouldn't consider an VGA cable even if that was an option on my GPU. So its a bit upsetting it doesn't come with a DVI cable. Luckily I do have some extras. They probably did this because a lot of people may have preferred HDMI because it also carries sound. VGA is more common to see on laptops than DVI... So DVI may be the odd man out... But would have been nice to get a cable. But for the price this sells for, I shouldn't complain.

Overall I'm very happy with the product. I've owned 1 Acer LCD monitor in the past, and it was very dull in comparison to my other monitors so I kind of stayed away from Acer monitors... Probably because its an IPS panel, but this one is really nice.

SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 390 DirectX 12 100382NTOCL 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 2.2 Slot, ATX Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card

Pros: * Quiet, I can't notice it at all
* Remains under 68°C while in the most intense games. (73°C for Furmarks) which is acceptable for AMD.
* Really good for 1440p gaming. Can play games on Ultra and maintain an FPS above 50.
* Really good for the price. If you're looking for a $300 card, GTX970 is probably the best way to go for 1080p gaming. But if you're gaming at 1440p+ I'd look at the R9 290X or the R9 390.

Cons: Didn't include any bonus games as a far as I know. No Dirt Rally code. No AMD Rewards code. I registered on Sapphire Select Club for their Gold membership but got nothing for it. :-(

No GPU backplate. Not the end of the world there.

Other Thoughts: Card length is actually 12.1 inches long. I got nervous when I saw Newegg list it as 13.25inches after I ordered the product. But the first thing I did was measure it. Its just over 12 inches long.

It runs very similar to an R9 290X if you can't find benchmarks and need something to reference.

Antec Eleven Hundred V2 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Great Case 03/10/2015

This review is from: Antec Eleven Hundred V2 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: * Its like a Mid / Full tower hybrid.
* Its only a little bigger than my old mid tower
* But the inside feels more like a Full tower. A lot of room. A lot of organization and cable management features.
* I bought a bunch of case fans... I think you can have 10 total... I took a bunch out. Just didn't need that many, but safe to say the are flow is excellent.
* Easy to change dust filters

Cons: I took the front panel off as gently as I could. But the instructions say you may need to apply some force the first time... It broke a little piece of plastic that holds it in. It was still perfectly secured to the front, but could just be pulled away easier.

Assuming I was just too forcefull with it, I emailed Antec to ask if they sold replacement front panels for the Eleven Hundred V2 because a small piece broke off of mine with my initial installation.

Their response:

"Send me a copy of your invoice, I'll send you a new front panel"

It arrived in about 2 weeks. No charge to me.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from the Antec Three Hundred Illusion... I think I actually paid more for the 300 Ilusion... But this 1100 V2 is way above and beyond that in quality and features.

I've always bought Antec PSU's, and now 2 Antec cases... After an excellent experience with their customer service, I think I've become an Antec customer for life. We'll see.
