Now that we’ve built four PCs with matching budgets, which builder, and which machine, owns the title of best performance for $1600?
Because you asked for it, we put an Intel Core i5 and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 into a mini-ITX case. But how does it perform compared to its larger twin?
For this quarter’s SBM, we built a gaming PC with a GeForce 980 paired with a Core i5. Can it keep up with our i7-based builds from previous SBMs?
We’ve seen how far I can push a six-core Haswell-E in our full-sized performance build, but can the same performance level fit into a mini cube?
This month’s high-end build looks lighter than its predecessor, yet includes a six-core Haswell-E CPU. Will the shift away from graphics kill its gaming cred?
Can an extra $150 eliminate the compromises of last quarter’s high-end build? We attempt to answer that while following your most-requested recipe for performance supremacy!
