Fridge Case Cools Jets on Speed-Burner Gaming PC

The Signature Edition Raptor has only a basic 3.0-GHz CPU, but it's overclocked and swaddled in an electric refrigeration watercooler to reach a gnarly 4.28 GHz. Combine that with the three top-shelf Nvidia GeForce GTX 280 videocards running like a pack of frame-rate-rabid dogs and you've got the fastest gaming PC in our entire roundup. The case shape is uninspired — OK, it borders on tacky, what with a window that glows like a blue slushy. But we're not arguing with the benchmark scores — or the price tag, which is half that of its closest competitor in the bunch.

WIRED Balls-out speed from the three graphics cards running in tandem. Cheap, thanks to a midrange processor overclocked to atmospheric performance levels.

TIRED Front-mounted USB and audio ports are too low to be very useful. Hard-to-open case looks like it was pulled off a generic gaming PC and assaulted with a BeDazzler. Chip manufacturer Intel will not guarantee its processor's longevity when overclocked, so cross your fingers. Comes with only 2 GB of RAM.
