Hot-Swappable Drive Bays

This desktop features two 3.5"
hot-swappable drive bays along with tool-free expansion for easy-to-add
extra storage and backup. 

2 eSATA Ports

 
 This is a major plus in this rigs favor, for me at least... A major failure is the media card readers. All they do is hog up drive letters.

I would vote for digitalstormonline.com  for the best made to order machines out there.

My comuter I won from Maximumpc.com is better than this thing. 

I also added a better PSU.

 

My specs I won.

Core i7 870 3.6ghz/ Asetek Liquid cooling with after market fans in push and pull.

Intel Extreme DP55KG mobo

8gb ddr3 1600mhz Kingston ram at 7-7-7-20

1tb hard drive

EVGA 285 2gb FTW edition.

Blue ray drive and dvd drive.

Coolmaster CM Sniper Case!

 

With a couple of SSD's and a generous overclock my machine will be even more of a super computer!

Thanks again Maximumpc, love this computer!!!

Love 30 Rock... also does this come with something other than Win7 Home Premium? If so they just put 8 gigs of dead weight on sale.

It would be funny if they offered that config with a 32 bit OS as an option.

Can they get rid of the supercomputer monikor and go back with "Uber super mega garbage"

I hope they done't have a case window.  That's is a sad wiring job for a super computer

These PC manufacturers can keep churning out rigs that have decent to good performance and look pretty on the outside, but the inside looks like a rat's nest... unfortunately, your typical PC buyer won't care that it looks this way, or that it cuts down on airflow.

Wait, wait, let me be the retard:

But can it run Crysis?

They didn't call it something that contained the word, "Extreme". That should count for something...

BigC

Does it have 16GB of ram or 1GB of ram

Look in the specifications.

Thanks for catching the typo in the spec chart; the review has been updated.

I understand that overclocking is all the rage, but shouldn't a zero point config be just that? May I suggest a second catagory for test configs. Zero point, for those of us that don't overclock. Over point, or something similar, to reflect overclocking. Then based your reviews on if the system is overclocked or not and how they compare to the point rigs.

 

Just a thought.

The zero point system should run at stock clocks. Whether or not someone considers the hardware selection too extreme is not as important as the fact that at stock clocks anyone with the same config should get comparable performance. The overclocking ability will vary too much between each individual piece of the same hardware to be used as a reference point.

Yeah, it was always my understanding was that the zero point rig was supposed to be kind of an industry average rig to compare systems to. The last zero point rig I'll admit may have been a little underpowered, but your new rig is a beast. No prebuilt machine but the exotic insanely priced units are going to match it any time soon. And then overclocking it just adds to it. Its by no means a fair comparison. With that being said, nice build. I have the same setup except I opted for the 5870 so I could still afford to pay my mortgage :D

Why would you want to pay your mortgage when you can be gaming?

 I second that motion. It can't be stock, if you've overclocked the parts.

zero-point indicates all stock. Speed, parts, settings.

How does it compare to the $647 budget gaming PC?
