System Builder Marathon: Performance & Value

UT3 hands the lead to our previous $1,500 build, but with such high frame rates for even the slowest build, any lead is inconsequential.

Although smooth frame rates are far less significant in RTS game play, the excellent visuals will probably have most players seeking to keep stuttering to a minimum. Fortunately, our $625 machine pulled through with 38 FPS when AA and AF were disabled. The $1,250 enthusiast system takes a huge lead over its $1,500 predecessor, but it’s obvious that the extra performance really wasn’t needed for this title.
