Fall Extreme Gamer System Shootout begins with Liquid XS from All American Computers

From LAN Parties And Comdex To E3 And Computex

All American Computers is headquartered in Terre Haute, Indiana. Kyle Felstein, the founder and CEO, has been working with high-end systems for quite some time. The company was created in 1999 and has become one of the area's leading computer systems sales and support companies. They not only make high-quality office and home systems, but some of the best gaming rigs on the planet.

We first met up with AAC in 2003 at Million Man LAN 2. Kyle and his crew were doing free tech support for anyone who needed help with their systems. They were also involved in putting together some of AMD's first Opteron and Athlon 64 systems, which were shown off at that event. This year they built the systems for E3 and Computex for ATI. You might remember them from their involvement at the ATI Ultimate LAN party, where they gave away a system with a one-of-a-kind X850XT PE 512 MB video card.

After seeing their CrossFire system at Computex, I had to get our hands on one of their systems. Of course, CrossFire hasn't been released yet, but we did manage to rustle up one with two SLI enabled XFX 7800 GTX video cards and a wicked system overclock.
