Awesome!!

Archos 502032 OMAP 4 smart multi-core ARM CORTEX A9 1.50GHz 8.0" 1024 x 768 80 G9 Turbo Android Tablet Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

Pros: I have been searching for a tablet with a lot of features and this one has just about everything plus a fast dual core cpu the screen is large and vibrant, microsd is always nice for expandability

Cons: uh... i havent found any yet

Overall Review: the only thing that i wish was different is the screen ratio but thats for a custom install in my car.

Most Critical Review

If you are buying this for the WIFI DONT

ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS WIFI II AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS WIFI II AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The specs on this board are solid. Plenty of room for larger CPU coolers and the ARGB software runs great.

Cons: The major glaring flaw of this board is the WIFI adapter. The Mediatek WIFI 6 MT7921 is the adapter ASUS used on this board and it is the worst WIFI adapter I have ever had to deal with. Ive updated drivers, downgraded drivers, installed random driver and tried a multitude of random settings to get the WIFI to stay connected. This will not stay connected to save its life. The only way to get it to reconnect is to reboot the entire system.

Overall Review: The only way I would recommend this board is if you plan on having it plugged into a dedicated ethernet line and not using the WIFI and even then there are much better boards out there for dedicated hardline users. Learn from plenty of others mistakes and avoid the anything with the Mediatek MT7921 like the plague. I wish I had.

worth it!!!

Acer G235HAbd 23'' 5ms 1920x1080 WideScreen LCD monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1

Pros: good monitor, great color and refresh rate for an everyday pc and mild gaming.

Cons: none that ive seen.

Overall Review: this is a good cheap monitor for someone doing a budget build or a budget gamer. if you have loads of money and want the best of the best then look elsewhere.

one of the most modular cases

Pros: one of the most modular cases ive worked with, nine 5.25 trays up to 6 hd slots fans in all the right spots top fan blows a good amount of air, removable hd trays comes with an extra fan shroud if u want three fans in the front

Cons: theres no on/off switch for the lights on the fans, not really enough to take away an egg but it would be nice

great board

Pros: awesome board very versatile bios is simple and intuitive included software is not too bloated and very stable for oc spacing is great for crossfire or sli definitly upgradable especially whenever the new octo-core cpu comes out

Cons: the only downside ive noticed is the esata placement, if u have a smaller case u will most likely have issues with this but if u have a normal atx mid tower it shouldnt be an issue

great cpu great price

AMD Athlon II X4 620 - Athlon II X4 Propus Quad-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor - ADX620WFGIBOX

Pros: runs great i am currently oc to 3.4ghz no temp problems with aftermarket cpu cooler

Cons: with stock heatsink and fan it was running very hot 45Celcius at idle which is too high for my taste

Overall Review: whether ur ocing or running stock settings i highly recommend an aftermarket cpu cooler and that goes for any cpu because the stock cooler is meant to handle the bare minimum.
