Systems priced in this range generally deliver a much better bang for the buck over their flagship counterparts. We can all agree that the high cost flagship systems are what everyone drools over, but when it comes time to actually lay the loot on the table your money is best spent on technology that is generally a generation old. This is mainly due to the way the software industry works and their need to produce a product that works on a wide variety of computer systems. The GameRigs Ego as configured is a perfect example of how your Dollar can be stretched to deliver really good gaming performance without spending 5K+ on a gaming system.
It took quite a while for me to get over seeing GameRigs as a company that makes a really wicked case and seeing them more as a system builder. The case is really where the action is at for those of us that build our own systems. It is possible to purchase GameRigs cases on their own, but the price quoted on their website, 349.99 USD puts a stop to that thought pretty quickly.
GameRigs is a fairly new company and their first sample to us showed their inexperience as a system builder. The first thing was on the software side; many users would prefer to have their system shipped with some form of anti-virus software and DVD playback software. However, with that said, neither one of these would be a deal breaker and shouldn't keep you away from buying the system. My last complaint with the Ego as configured has to do with the stock Intel heat sink and fan. For most users the stock Intel cooler is perfect for their daily web surfing and email use, but gamers use the power of the Core2 processor and when going strong the processor tells the motherboard to spin the coolers fan to levels that become annoying to your ears.
