Maingear Vybe

 

With its fourth-generation Intel Core (Haswell) to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics. the Maingear Vybe gives us the best gaming performance among entry-level gaming desktops.

High-end performance from an entry level gaming rig. Lots of room for expansion

500W PSU may limit future expansion. Utilitarian chassis. Short warranty for a boutique-built system

The Maingear Vybe ($999) is a gaming rig that comes in at an entry-level price. While you can get less expensive multimedia systems, $999 is about the right price for a starter gaming rig with a serious graphics card like the Nvdia GeForce GTX 650 Ti....

Typically, when we receive a desktop PC from a boutique manufacturer, we receive a high-end system that is absurdly powerful and absurdly expensive. And hey, that's understandable – those sorts of computers are their specialty. It's their edge, the...

Simple and functional design ; Solid performance for the price ; No bloatware ; Runs cool and (relatively) quiet

Strong performance on multithreaded PC games; wireless networking and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 included free

A few underwhelming features for its price; less-than-convenient drive cage layout

If you're looking for an affordable six-core PC, with future-looking connectivity and upgrade room, the Vybe should serve you well. Just be sure your programs can really use all those cores.

Inexpensive for a six-core PC, Highly expandable, Next-gen USB, SATA ports

Six-core CPU only a boon for fully threaded software

Consumer review by:

Made and supported in America

 

Being able to count on support is very important when purchasing a PC via the internet. If you get stuck on the phone with someone in a different country with a thick accent who really has no interest in solving your problem. You're in for a bad...

One thing your review failed to mention is that all of MainGears products are Made in USA and supported by Americans. No outsourcing of its support

None at this time
