EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 24G-P5-3987-KR, 24GB GDDR6X, iCX3 Technology, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate

Pros: Runs great, more quiet and cooler than my Evga 2080 ti

Overall Review: Top of the line in the GeForce series. This is the better priced one out of the other 3090s on the market

Most Critical Review

Decent Quality

Pros: Looks awesome, great for a young one in the family.

Cons: It really can't be used as an backpack like advertised, it has a small zipper pocket in the back that can fit maybe a wallet. Some of the material used feels cheap.

Good PSU

Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1475M 1475 W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This is a good PSU, I don't know why the posters above say that it only can power 3 cards. I run 4x R9 290 GPUs with this and I have all 4 of the cards overclocked to 1000/1500 when mining. I have 1 GPU on the MB and 3x GPUs on PCI Riser cables with Molex connectors to give it extra power.

Cons: The fan makes a clicking noise when starting up. It isn't fully modular.

Overall Review: MSI 990FXA-GD80 Motherboard 2x Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 RAM AMD FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz CPU 120 GB Samsung SSD

Overpriced now

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Great RAM, no problems, efficient and fast.

Cons: Overpriced now. Bought this RAM in 2011 and it cost less than $45. Now it is more than double the price.

Overall Review: Why the dramatic increase?

Fast

Intel Core i7-4820K - Core i7 4th Gen Ivy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.7GHz (Turbo 3.9GHz) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80633i74820K
Intel Core i7-4820K - Core i7 4th Gen Ivy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.7GHz (Turbo 3.9GHz) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80633i74820K

Pros: Fast, efficient, more than you need for the average person. If you play even high intensity games, this is more than enough. This cpu will be good 2 years from now and still running anything you throw at it without a hiccup.

Cons: First one was DOA and I had to contact Intel for replacement. They took longer than anticipated to get all the info for me to ship back the faulty cpu. First time I ran into a problem where it was a DOA product from Intel. This is my third Intel processor and I am still using a i5-2500K on another system which still runs great. Intel was pretty good about the replacement policy, only downside was I had to pay for shipping which was $12 to ship back the defective cpu.

Overall Review: I use AMD and Intel, I have over 5 computers and I would suggest that this CPU only if you do more than just intense gaming. I am a fan of both the cpu manufacturers but the best bang for your buck is with AMD.
