Falcon Northwest Fragbox II

 

You know when a little person shows up in a Ben Stiller movie he's gonna whoop some ass. Sometimes that's not just a comedy film cliché. Take, for example, Falcon Northwest's size-challenged Fragbox II.

Faster than big, bad gaming desktops and almost fits under an airplane seat

Slightly noisy and could use faster disk I/O for the price

It is, however, smaller and faster than a lot of the gaming machines we’ve seen recently. Heck, it’s even cheaper than some of them too.

Falcon Northwest FragBox 2

 

The use of the Athlon processor translates into a less expensive FragBox system, since the processor in the one we tested cost almost $700 less than the one in the previously reviewed P4EE-powered FragBox 2. That P4EE-powered FragBox 2 cost more than...

Compact gaming case. More gaming performance for much less money than our last FragBox 2. Good hardware mix

Still a lot of money for a system without a monitor

The Falcon Northwest FragBox 2 gives gamers exactly what they want: blistering gaming performance for a price that doesn't require a trust fund.
