CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600 review

£499 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

With its glossy, piano-black case and blue illuminated tubes filled with static bubbles, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600 looks the part as a budget gaming system.

CyberPower has a long tradition of designing systems specifically for gamers, and the Gamer Infinity 600 is no exception. Despite costing less than £500, this desktop PC is embellished with a glossy, piano-black case and blue illuminated tubes filled with static bubbles. It’s not the kind of thing you’d want in your office, but it looks the part for a budget gaming system.

For £500 you shouldn’t expect to see anything too exciting under the bonnet, but CyberPower has included a large and impressive-looking cooler, which should provide a little extra leeway if you decide to take the Gamer Infinity 600 down the overclocking route.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600 boasts a full-size MSI motherboard with plenty of expansion slots, including room for two extra sticks of RAM. There are also three spare 5.25in bays and room for another two 3.5in hard drives.

Another fan of Intel’s E8500 chip, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600 turned in a reasonable 120 points in our WorldBench 6 benchmark. This is a decent enough result, but some of the other desktop PCs in the chart eclipse it.

An ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics card delivers some very good results. Older games will present no problems at all, and the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600 will have a good stab at Crysis, even at higher resolutions. The card is still no match for nVidia’s GeForce 9600 GT, however – as seen in the Fusion Flame.

Unsurprisingly, Hannspree’s XM New York display adds the finishing touches to the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 600. This monitor is a good match for the computer in both looks and graphical capabilities.
