This is always a great article to do as it really gives us a chance to show people just what the parts we recommend in our Commander based system are capable of. It's one thing to point people in the direction of parts, but it's another to show them the kind of performance they're able to get when combining those parts together.
As we treat the Commander PC as a system, we will take a slightly different approach to it than we normally would when reviewing a video card; instead we'll add some system benchmarks into the mix.
Before we look at the performance side of things, we'll first have a closer look at the Commander PC and some of the key components. We don't organize all the parts in our Commander PC, because not all of them are needed to give you an idea on performance. Instead we just organize the main components like Motherboard, RAM, Video Card, Storage, and of course, the CPU.
What we'll do first is have a look at these main components and why we chose them. Once that's done we'll then see how we go with the Commander PC and overclocking before we get stuck into the benchmark side of things.
