  • Eclipse Ultimate A60N86GT budget PC

    The Eclipse Ultimate A60N86GT budget PC's WorldBench real-world speed score of 89 easily outshone many other PCs at this price point, with their low-end Core 2 Duo…

  • Eclipse Evolution i685n88s budget PC

    Eclipse once stunned us by putting together an E6700 system for £750 (the Matrix i67N88-VSTA). And now it's gone even further this month, squeezing out the Eclipse…

  • Eclipse Matrix I67N88-VSTA budget PC

  • Eclipse Elite i675n86gt budget PC

    Last month's Best Buy, the AMD Athlon-inspired Eclipse Ultimate A60N86GT, has been beaten by the lethally fast Eclipse Elite i675n86gt.

  • Eclipse Matrix SLI A60n86GT budget desktop PC

    The £500 category is very much one in which it’s all too easy to slip into the background. With so little money to spread across the many components that go into a…

  • Eclipse Fusion i670A385HD budget desktop PC

    In many ways an inferior system to the Arbico CD6750 SX and Advance Technologies AT-FX Air+, the Eclipse Fusion i670A385HD has one stand-out component: the Radeon HD…

  • Eclipse Crucial Supreme n685n88GTS-0C budget desktop PC review

  • Eclipse Matrix A64N88GS budget desktop PC review

    The Eclipse Matrix A64N88GS is the only PC in our chart to use an AMD processor.

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Eclipse Elite i85n98GTX budget desktop PC review

    Another system based on the E8500 chip, Eclipse’s Elite i85n98GTX seems somewhat lacking in specification.

    £749 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Eclipse Evolution i84n88GS budget desktop PC review

    The Eclipse Evolution i84m88GS doesn’t offer the fastest WorldBench 6 speed score, but keen gamers will find compensation in its top-notch 3D graphics performance.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Eclipse Matrix i85A487 budget desktop PC review

    This impressive entry from Eclipse stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to gaming.

  • Eclipse Matrix i85a465 review

    Eclipse's Matrix i85a465 doesn’t look nearly as good as Palicomp’s Excalibur. The case, although tidy and inoffensive, has a distinctly budget look to it.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Eclipse Solar i85a465HD review

    You'll be hard pushed to notice the difference between the Eclipse Solar i85a465HD's general performance and that of PCs that cost twice as much.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 9 out of 10

  • Eclipse Aspire i84a465 review

    Eclipse’s Aspire i84a465 is a solid performer that achieves a decent 118 points in our WorldBench 6 speed tests.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Eclipse Matrix I86A487 review

    The Eclipse Matrix i86A487 offers a similar spec to Chillblast’s chart-leading system, but it can't compete with that machine's warranty.

  • Eclipse Mirage A995R467 review

    Eclipse is the second PC manufacturer in our chart to dabble with an AMD processor, with the Mirage A995R467 running a 2.6GHz quad-core Phenom X4 Black Edition 9550 CPU.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Eclipse Spirit i86R489 review

    Eclipse’s Spirit i86R489 is the third system in our chart to house a 3.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E8600, but it fails to match their levels of performance.

    £749 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Eclipse Pearl i84R483 review

    It’s the slowest performer here in our WorldBench 6 speed test, but the Eclipse Pearl i84R483's score of 115 points will be perfectly adequate for most users.

  • Eclipse Matrix i575R489 review

    With its superior multiprocessing capabilities, the Eclipse Matrix i575R489 will be a worthy challenger to any dual-core system.
