You'd be hard pressed to beat the overclocked monoliths that dominate the Performance charts -- but power doesn't come cheap
These power-packed systems for the uncompromising gamer deliver mind-blowing performance at prices that will hit you like a punch in the face. For the entire contents of your bank account, these desktop PCs will immerse you in the state of the art: overclocked multicore CPUs, ungodly amounts of RAM, solid state storage, Blu-ray and DVD, amazing sound and video, two or three graphics accelerators, an endless number of ports and connectors, and features -- like liquid cooling, sound-proof chassis, and manually adjustable fans -- that you probably didn't know existed. When you think of it, $3,000 or $6,000 or $7,000 isn't all that much to pay, especially if it's your parents' money.
