CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1322 (GX1322) Desktop PC Intel Core i7 2600K (3.40GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Intel Core i7 2600K (3.40GHz)
  • 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB

Pros:

This build has the two things I wanted in a new mid-level machine:
- the i7-2600k Sandy Bridge CPU allows you (with adequate cooling upgrades) to overclock stably at least 1GHz past factory spec (3.4GHz), with "some users reporting stable operation past 5GHz"
- the AMD HD6800 series, while not the absolute top-of-the-line, represents a very solid GPU for everything that isn't Crysis 2 maxed-out. *Plus*, the Gigabyte motherboard offers an upgrade to CrossfireX, albeit one slightly hampered by the narrow second lane (4x instead of 16x).

Cons:

The only point of frustration I've encountered with this machine is in upgrading to CrossfireX. I purchased and installed another HD6850; and after some misadventures with leftover driver (which AMD/ATI is notorious for), got the two working well -- but not completely.
The Catalyst Control Center doesn't let me enable CrossfireX, complaining that I need to "connect both bridge interconnects". This is somewhat disconcerting, as the HD6850 has only one bridge socket.
I suspect the reason behind the problem lies with the PSU; I'll be upgrading that soon.

Other Thoughts:

All in all, a nice machine. Very airy (with the holey top), very cool, and very blue (what with the open panels and the LED-fan). The only thing I'd say against that lovely screen-door ceiling is that it has the potential to get pretty noisy; but that can be solved with some planning and creative fan control.
