Smooth Creations Reaper TweakTown Edition Promo

As you can see, we did our best to keep out of the flagship part numbers to reduce cost for the Reaper TweakTown Edition. By using Intel's Core i7 940 instead of the flagship 965, we were able to shave a considerable amount of cost that would be passed down to the consumer. The same is true with choosing BFG Technologies' GTX 280 OC graphics cards.

With today's demanding software and of course our reputations on the line, there are some parts in a high performance system that just simply cannot be lowered from flagship specifications. The operating system boot disk plays a big role in how a system performs and going with anything other than a Western Digital VelociRaptor would have reduced the systems feel, resulting in a less than smooth feeling while bouncing around the OS. The VelociRaptor also manages to load our games faster than just about any other drive on the market and costs considerably less than a solid state drive.

Having reviewed computer hardware for longer than I can remember, there are a few things I picked up along the way. Two components that you never want to go second rate with is memory and your systems power. Corsair has always made great memory and everything they put on the market is tested prior to shipment. The Dominator DDR3 memory is some of the best there is; a fact that is undisputed and if you are looking to build a system that will run in perfect order for years to come, the Dominator Series will allow that to happen. On the power side of things we went with an 1100 watt PSU from Top Power. Using this large PSU allows us to have a generous reserve of power available for future upgrades and gives us the peace of mind in knowing that we have a high quality unit installed that will last for a very long time.

The Smooth Creations Reaper TweakTown Edition is available now exclusively on Smooth Creations' website for 2600 USD and includes free FedEx Ground Shipping. This is a limited run of only 50 systems. Let's have a look at what Smooth Creations designed and also see some benchmarks!
