UPDATE: CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750 budget desktop PC review

£500 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 4.5 out of 5

CyberPower’s Gamer Infinity 750 is a highly customisable system that can be configured online.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750 is a highly customisable system that’s clearly aimed at gamers, modders and overclockers who know that if you’re willing to take some risks, performance doesn’t have to cost the earth.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750 uses an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and a 512MB GeForce 8600 GT to provide excellent system performance and good gaming power for such a low-cost PC.

But if you want to push things further, CyberPower offers a range of overclocking options. The CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750 system we tested ships with its front-side bus overclocked from 1,333MHz up to 1,600MHz. In this configuration, the processor still runs at 3GHz but managed to eke out an extra WorldBench point.

Readers wishing to use this configuration and gain these fairly minor performance gains should tick the ‘PC Advisor’ box when purchasing the system online. Greater overclocking options are available for an additional fee. We’ve seen the kind of performance gains these can achieve and they’re very impressive indeed.

Less impressive, unfortunately, is the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750's Hanton H340WDS flat-panel. The unit itself is reasonably smart, but image quality isn’t up to the task of serious photo editing or multimedia use. The 8ms response time is fine for gaming, though. The controls are difficult and cumbersome, while the built-in speakers provide a less than immersive experience. Other than this component, however, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750 is a decent system.

Verdict

It's two months old, but we still rate the CyberPower Gamer Infinity 750. And if you're a fan of overclocking, you will too.
