UPDATE: CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition budget desktop PC review

£750 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

First reviewed two months ago, CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity Silent Edition lives to fight another day.

First reviewed two months ago, CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity Silent Edition lives to fight another day. With its creditable WorldBench 6 processing-speed score of 117, it holds it own against the latest batch of PCs despite being fitted with Intel’s older E6580 processor.

The newer (and considerably cheaper) CyberPower Gamer Infinity 850 system has a faster CPU, but the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition’s 4GB of DDR2 RAM helps overcome this. And the difference in the rest of the specifications is huge.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition’s 22in display provides far more desktop space, for example, although the image quality isn’t quite as good as some monitors here, such as the Chillblast Fusion Cobra’s 19in Hannspree.

Only Mesh's G94 Pulse offers a larger hard drive than the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition’s 400GB model, while the GeForce 8800 GT is an excellent graphics card. You’ll need its strong performance to make the most of that extra screen resolution.

Onboard audio is never a match for a decent card, but the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition’s Logitech S220 speakers and subwoofer deliver a convincing audio experience.

Verdict

With its lengthy warranty, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition offers good value. CyberPower has eked out every last bit of performance from the E6850, but this processor has probably had its day.
