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

Loud cooling fans. Ball mouse. No included security software

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

Intrusive cooling fan power cord

The Cyberpower Gamer Ultra 8500 SE is a good compromise between high performance and reasonable cost--with a little bit of style.
