CyberPower Gamer Ultra 8500 SE (4/07)

Gaming performance on a sub-$1,000 system. Good performance on our multimedia benchmark tests. Nice mix of components for the money. Three-year warranty

Budget price, especially for a gaming system. Adjustable fan speeds. Dual-core processor speeds multitasking. SLI-ready motherboard
