The system comes with nearly all of the documents that you would find if purchasing the components at the retail level. As you can see, GameRigs even provides a disk for Vista, something that we only see from boutique builders.


All of the screws and adapters are included so you can easily add more hard drives or other components to the system. GameRigs has even included the SLI bridge so that you can add an additional video card.


Software Configuration


Processes use system resources and can slow down a computer system. Most processes come from the operating system, but many come from the software installed. Here we take a look at how the system comes from the factory.

Paint Shop Pro 6 (psp.exe) was added for the purpose of the review due to its extensive screen capture capabilities. Other than my install, the system comes very clean and ready for you to start adding games galore.

I was a bit surprised to see that GameRigs didn't include any software for viewing DVD's with their system. All of the drivers were installed and the system was ready to go for gaming. The best thing is that there wasn't any BS ware, as I call it, that we see with some of the big box builders.
