Update: CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite desktop PC

£750 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

With a glut of E6850 systems hitting the chart, the E6750-equipped CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite drops from second to fifth place. Aided by some good-quality PC2-6400 memory, the E6750 produces a dapper performance in our test suite, shading the new PC Specialist Apollo 880GT by a point, but it’s not able to keep up with the E6850s. It’s a full nine points behind the 4GB sizzler from Chillblast Fusion Gladiator.

Last time round, the HD 2900 XT was the best graphics card in its price range, but the cheaper and faster GeForce 8800 GT has since stolen its thunder – by these sparkling new standards the CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite’s gaming performance seems disappointing. The Yuraku screen, meanwhile, is a solid model, but the Hannsprees used elsewhere are marginally better – unless, of course, you want a flat-panel that isn’t widescreen.

The audio is adequate, while the DVD drive’s write speeds are decent, if less impressive than those boasted by the CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite’s competitors.

Verdict

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite comes with a lengthy warranty and solid components, but the high-quality models above it in the chart make it seem a little old-fashioned.
