  1. I know HIS is a no-name brand, but the reviews I read were for the most part positive, does the designer of the GPU really matter that much?

  2. What's wrong with Seagate?

  3. Is the i5-4670k really worth the extra $50?

  4. I can understand the ram, I just thought the Kingston Fury looked really cool.
