Corsair Gaming K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very smooth key switches. Lighting effects are really cool. The keyboard itself is EXTREMELY sturdy, though it is a little heavy (which is to be expected with the aluminum construction).

The media keys are perfect, and the Corsair Utility Engine software can be configured to prioritize certain programs/media players over others so you don't accidentally start playing music in Winamp while watching a movie in VLC. There is a list of pre-configured items already loaded in the software, but new items can be added. I use Google Play Music for all my music needs, and CUE was able to recognize the tab Google Music was in and configured itself to be able to play/pause the music without any special programming.

The volume rollbar feels a little stiff, but I'd rather it be that way rather than too loose.

Cons: Definitely on the pricey side, but after using the thing, I feel it is justified.

Certain actions when programming the LEDs causes the color to shift in odd ways - red becomes purple, yellow becomes dark green, etc. I suspect this is just a glitch with CUE and will be ironed out soon.

CUE isn't very intuitive (at all) and the manual is ~150 pages long.

Other Thoughts: Bought to replace a Logitech G510 and Razer Deathstalker.

ASUS Z97-WS Intel LGA1150 HDMI/DisplayPort /Mini DisplayPort Dual server-grade Intel LAN ATX Server Workstation Motherboard for Quad-strength Graphic Power
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Stable, powerful, no gimmicky features I don't really care about. It comes with a single M.2 SSD slot, which I plan on utilizing when 10Gbps M.2 drives are launched, as well as 2 SATA Express ports, which I'm not sure I'll use yet.

Cons: No bluetooth, but that can be easily remedied.

Other Thoughts: I'm fairly wary about the considerable number of negative reviews on this board, especially the apparently high rate of failure people seem to be experiencing. Hopefully I don't run into any issues with it. I intentionally waited to write this review solely because of this.

EVGA 03G-P4-2884-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is incredible. I play games in 5760x1080 resolution, and this thing has chewed through absolutely everything I've thrown at it so far.

My old setup involved 3 GTX 570's in SLI (I replaced them due to failure), and this single card outdoes everything those cards were capable of together by more than 300%.

At base clock speeds, 3DMark Fire Strike (performance) netted me a score of ~9,200.

Cons: This isn't enough to knock off an egg, but the card is pretty expensive. I feel the investment was worth it, though.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had an opportunity to give Shadowplay a test run yet due to no support for Surround setups. However, this really isn't an issue with the card itself, but rather the Shadowplay software - most likely, surround support will be added later on in the beta testing.

I have every intention of purchasing a second card somewhere down the line and running in 2x SLI.
