Maingear Shift Video
The handsome new Maingear Vybe SuperStock offers everything we like to see in a modern gaming PC, and we'd recommend it particularly to those looking for a well-rounded performance computer.
Falcon Northwest's flagship Mach V gaming PC gets a towering case redesign, and upgrades to the latest components from Intel and Nvidia. We have a few suggestions to make this system truly live up to its boutique price tag, but overall the Mach V delivers on its promise of luxury PC gaming.
The Origin Chronos shows the strength of small boutique vendors with a fast, affordable, and compact little desktop that I can recommend to any PC gamer.
With few limitations and strong value in its enthusiast category, Maingear's expertly built, impressively fast Vybe Super Stock earns a well-deserved Editors' Choice Award.

Falcon Northwest's FragBox might be the best known small-form-factor gaming PC, but Maingear's X-Cube is currently the most up-to-date. With the latest of everything, if you want a gaming desktop for on-the-road fragging, look no further.
This looks like a textbook computer, but an overclocked CPU is just one of the boutique PC surprises in the Velocity Micro Vector Campus Edition.
On the Green Show this week, energy-efficient light bulbs, a look at the Maingear Pulse gaming PC, and a study on the greenness of an e-reader.
Velocity Micro's Edge Z30 is the best deal going right now for midlevel gaming PCs featuring Intel's new Core i7 chips. The overclocked Core i7 860, a fast Nvidia graphics card, and a solid selection of features all around make it easy for us to recommend this system to anyone looking for a capable gaming desktop.
Ignore the side panel. Maingear has an outstanding deal in this high-end F131 gaming desktop, which is one of the fastest PCs we've seen all year. We recommend this system without hesitation to serious PC gamers and those interested in a high-performance, high-value computer.
