The company has provided the ability to customize the DRIFT all the way up to Intel's expensive, but super-fast Extreme Edition Haswell-E or new Skylake processors, as well as full-sized video cards like NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Titan X. Inside, you can configure the DRIFT with up to 16GB of DDR4 from Kingston, and various storage options with 3 x HDD bays that can be kitted out with 2 x Samsung 850 Pro SSDs, and a huge 6TB HDD for storage.

MAINGEAR's DRIFT PC can be placed both vertically and horizontally, thanks to it being cooled by the Epic 120 liquid cooling system - which is a "maintenance-free system that keeps the Steam Machine running incredibly cool at top speeds for extended periods of time". The DRIFT system includes Valve's new Steam Controller, and starts at $1,099 on MAINGEAR's website.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
