TweakTown Commander PC Benchmarked

We bench the Commander from our System Builders Guide to show what $2,000 actually gets you.

Introduction

The idea behind the System Builders Guide here at TweakTown is that it gives someone an idea of the kind of system they could build for three budgets which can be seen here at our SBG page.

The first budget is $1,000 USD, while the top is an unlimited one. The middle system, however; the Commander, comes in at $2,000 USD and is a fairly standard budget for someone looking for a complete system from CPU to Video Card and Monitor to Mouse. If you're already happy with the monitor you've got, though, and perhaps also your speakers, mouse and keyboard etc. and you're just looking for a new box, then the guide also helps.

 

Today we're taking it a little further. What we're doing is grabbing the main bits from our Commander PC which include Motherboard, CPU, Video Card, RAM and Hard Drives and showing you that if you built this system what kind of performance you can expect from it.

 

We've ignored a lot of the things like PSU, Case, Monitor, etc. for the simple reason that they're not actually going to impact the FPS or general computing performance. Since we haven't done this before, there's no real formula to how we should attack everything. So what I've done is on the next page just given you a brief run down on the main components we're using and why, before we then get stuck into the actual numbers the system can achieve.
