This review has turned into an extended test, so we were able to become well versed with the system and the quality of the build. I can tell you right off the bat that the system is solid. The craftsmanship and longevity of the case finish is all but indestructible!
GameRigs offers several systems; their current lineup consists of both notebooks and desktops. Today we will be looking at the Ego, a system that, as configured for our test, lists for 1,823 U.S. Dollars. This price point puts it in the budget category as far as gaming systems are concerned. The base configuration Ego comes in at around 2200 USD, but we chose to downgrade a few options like removing the Blu-ray optical drive in favor of a DVD-RW from Lite-On that features Lightscribe capability. On the other side of the fence, it is possible to configure the Ego system with dual or even triple video cards for SLi. The options given by GameRigs are not as vast as some system builders, but they do cover all of the major options that a majority of users would like to configure.
When talking with the company, one item stood out that will please buyers. The company has a turnaround time of a week once the system is ordered. We have all heard stories of systems taking up to a month to ship from a system builder; that is not the way GameRigs likes to do things and certainly not the way a consumer likes to be treated.
