Mar 15 2011 - The CyberPower Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro desktop is a budget-friendly model that still sports the fast Intel Core i7-2600K unlocked processor.

With 8GB of memory and the NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti, gaming is a pleasure especially considering the starting price is under $1,250. And since the Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro is a boutique computer, customizing each and every component is an option. So if you want to play the most demanding games at maxed out settings, an upgraded video card will do the trick. While the base case design may not appeal to some, the overall value lies in the advanced components.

Review - CyberPower Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro Desktop Computer

Mar 15 2011 - If you're on the fence about building your own PC but don't want to sacrifice control over what components are used, then a custom computer is a viable option.

CyberPower has a variety of gaming desktops with the new 2nd generation processors, and the Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro features the higher-end Intel Core i7-2600K chip. The 2600K offers a fully unlocked CPU and GPU for exceptional overclocking. And it is an excellent value, with the base price of the entire system starting at $1,245.

For under $1,300, the system comes equipped with a Gigabyte motherboard with the P67 chipset, as well as 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory. This RAM is nice and fast for running simultaneous programs. As for design, the Raidmax Blackstorm mid-tower case may not be for everyone, but since the system is fully customizable there are a variety of additional options.

Since gaming requires enhanced performance, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro desktop comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB card. This card is a midrange model, although a 2GB GTX 560 Ti is available for $30 more. With 384 CUDA cores and 3D Vision capability (with compatible hardware), it's more than adequate for moderate gaming.

Even though the GTX 560 Ti is an energy efficient card, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro comes with a 700 watt power supply to provide enough juice to all of your components.

If you plan on upgrading the video card or adding an additional graphics card in SLI configuration, you'll probably want to upgrade to a more powerful model. Luckily, the upgrade prices are reasonable.

In terms of storage, there is more than enough space with the 2TB 7200RPM hard drive (Please note: This is a free upgrade at the time of publication). This spacious drive is fast enough for gaming as the cost of a solid state drive often does not warrant the performance boost in load times.

Overall, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 8800 Pro is a well-equipped mid-tower desktop PC with a budget-friendly price tag. It offers excellent speed for the cost. And while a few upgrades could achieve even greater performance, for the most part this system is a delight to use for gaming.
