  1. MainGear has introduced a new series of gaming PC, the F1X, which is comprised of the F1X 750, F1X 500, and F1X 200. If the new systems look familiar, it's probably because the F1X lineup uses the same chassis as MainGear's acclaimed ePhex desktop -- in fact, the company calls the F1X a "retooled" ePhex.

    Where's the case that was shown at CES in the Fermi rig?
    Supposed top-of-the-line system housed in a TJ10- A byword for cable management nightmare and a full tower that can only use a 120.2 radiator maximum if you want to go W/C- which would a likely scenario if you're prepared to drop serious funds into the highest specced i7.

    I just specked out a Black Mamba system from cyberpowerpc with higher specs (2 Intel 80Gb in raid 0, 2TB harddrive, 975 overclocked to 4Ghz, Corsair Dominator memory overclocked 20% as well). I got a price tag of $4588 on this system. So in short, i think their pricing is a bit high.

    MainGear's prices are a bit higher, but their service and reputation is generally better than iBuyPower and CyberPower. That goes a long way for a person who doesn't want to, or otherwise cannot build their own system.

    I buy that as I end up supporting most of my families computers anyway ;-) But for someone who knows what they are doing or is comparing building a system on their own with purchasing one pre-built the price makes a bigger difference.
