So your neighbor thinks he’s cool and all after snagging a spanking new 60GB PlayStation 3, but hardcore gamers know that when it comes to a full-fledged gaming system, nothing comes quite close to the PC, not even Gears of War on the Xbox 360. With that in mind, why not spite the Joneses by picking up the SDXi gaming rig from Shuttle’s XPC 1337 range? You can be sure that you will have the fastest machine around the neighborhood, giving you an edge over your opponents who constantly roam the virtual worlds of World of Warcraft, Counter Strike, Battlefield, and countless others.
What makes the Shuttle XPC 1337 system so different from the rest of the regular XPC computers are the hardware, internal case designs, and external case. Each SDXi is lovingly hand painted with a matching mouse and keyboard to go. It is no ordinary paint as Shuttle uses premium automotive finish to give each individual unit its very own feel. Of course, don’t be fooled by the diminutive size of the SDXi gaming system as it is equipped with a top-of-the-line quad-core Intel Core 2 Exterme QX6700 processor, while 2GB’s worth of Crucial Ballistix high performance RAM help your cause for maximum framerates.
Graphical firepower comes in the form of two ATI Radeon X1950 XTX video cards that are running in AMD’s ATI CrossFire technology. This means you get a double performance boost no matter what application is running at the moment. Both graphics cards are liquid cooled, so you don’t have to worry about them bursting into flames suddenly. Of course, such performance does come with a premium price tag attached to it – so if you want to be the best, be prepared to fork out at least $5,000.
