    Have to agree fellas... hard to see the great ones fall.


    *Going to add one more ~ my recently replaced (but not out of commission) i5 760, 43% OC since day one and not a single hiccup in three years... awesome chip.

    Abit and Epox. A damn shame they're not with us anymore. I miss Hercules also, they were always my first choice when buying a GPU.

    I been using it for a month and a half, been working great for me. its a Wireless mouse with 6 thumb buttons that uses batteries with a life time of 250 hours. It been problem free for me in games, tho the software could use a bit more tweaking. You might wanna go to a local store that has the mouse and try it in your hands just to make sure it feel comfortable in your hand. As that was one of the main reasons I got it.

    I agree, I love my new G602. It's very comfortable and ergonomic, and the battery life is immense. It also takes double A's so it's easy to keep running. It's rated for 250 hours in "endurance mode" which just means it polls at 125Hz. If you need 500Hz it can do that as well, but I don't bother.

    I forgot one - my 7950, the price/performance ratio is amazing due to overclocking headroom.

    1. Sennheiser HD650's (Seriously. I can't see myself ever moving on from these)
    2. Intel e6750 (I bought this as part of a build after a house fire destroyed my old setup, amazing for the price)
    3. Aune T1 (The little DAC that could, a great introduction to Valves and it sounds fantastic)
    4. OCZ Agility 3 SSD (They got such a bad rep, but I never had a problem with mine)
    5. Sapphire Flexx HD7950 (No need for an active displayport adapter, OC's well and has amazing longevity)

    I could sit typing them out all day to be honest, so I decided to go for mostly more recent purchases.
