  • 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 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 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 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 Matrix i85A487 budget desktop PC review

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

    £749 inc VAT

  • 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.

    £500 inc VAT

    Score - 8 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 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.

    £749 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Eclipse Solar i523P67 review

    A £500 PC with a Sandy Bridge processor, the Eclipse Solar i523P67 offers excellent performance and value for money.

    £499 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • Eclipse Explorer i525H67 review

    Eclipse’s Explorer i525H67 has a very similar specification to our Best Buy Arbico eXcel i5250 MX, which centres around a 3.33GHz Intel Core i5-2500 CPU. Once again,…

  • Eclipse Fusion i76n460 review

    Eclipse's Fusion i76n460 is a fast gaming machine, but we've seen budget desktop PCs with slower processors offering the same level of general performance.

    £749 inc VAT

    Score - 8 out of 10

  • 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 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.

    £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 Matrix i575R489 review

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

    £749 inc VAT

    Score - 7 out of 10

  • Eclipse Matrix A62R567 review

    With fast DDR3 RAM and double the graphics memory of any other system here, the AMD-powered Eclipse Matrix A62R567 offers plenty of speed.
