2010 Designed for gaming, video work and over clocking.

The strength of gaming is mostly in the video card.

The strength of video work is in the microprocessor and RAM.

This computer will run the best games without using the Turbo mode. Turbo mode is stable at 3.2 GHz without increasing voltage.

Note: Tuning TurboV mode takes some work. Lubricate the TurboV module connector before plugging into the mother board. It is very difficult to remove and is not replaceable if you break the wire connections. This connector is a questionable design.

The hard drive speed is not easily monitored by Windows 7. The hard drive speed can be increased by using the on board dual drive feature and 2 identical hard drives.
