Like our Best Buy Chillblast, the Eclipse Solar Crossfire i786r585 desktop PC uses a powerful 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 860 quad-core CPU, an ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics card and a Gigabyte motherboard that features an Intel P55 chipset.

Both systems perform very well in our gaming tests and can deliver playable framerates at high-quality settings, even at the top resolution of the Eclipse Solar Crossfire i786r585 desktop PC's monitor.

Eclipse bundles a 23.6in Hanns-G full-HD display with the Solar Crossfire i786r585 desktop PC. One of the best monitors in the group, the Hanns-G comes with dual inputs, including HDMI.

General computing speed is also very good, with the Eclipse Solar Crossfire i786r585 desktop PC coming second only to the Arbico in our benchmarking. Its score of 136 points in WorldBench 6 is a great result for a quad-core system, which has plenty more potential power when running multithreaded applications than our benchmark can assess.

The Eclipse Solar Crossfire i786r585 desktop PC's Gigabyte P55A-UD3 motherboard offers everything that the Chillblast's GA-P55-USB3 does - USB 3.0, six SATA 3Gbps connectors and two PCI Express x16, two PCI Express X1 and two PCI slots - but there's one important difference: it adds a pair of SATA 6Gbps connectors.
