CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT budget desktop PC review

£699 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Those who want to play hard and look good while they’re doing it will appreciate the CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT’s windowed, blue-lit side panel, colour-co-ordinated interior components and impressive-looking Intel CPU cooler.

Those who want to play hard and look good while they’re doing it will appreciate the CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT’s windowed, blue-lit side panel, colour-co-ordinated interior components and impressive-looking Intel CPU cooler, usually found only on the company’s highest-performing chips.

This latter feature may be slight overkill for a Core 2 Duo E8500, but over-engineering the cooling doesn’t hurt. It looks much better than the standard cooler, and allows overclockers to push the processor that bit further – something CyberPower is happy to do for an additional £57. The CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT's case-mounted LCD readout is another nice touch. This displays the temperatures of key internal components – a boon for those who like to push their PC to the limits.

At stock speeds the CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT delivers reasonably good performance, scoring seven WorldBench 6 points fewer than Arbico's Elite 8070EX. But this is a gaming PC, not an Excel workhorse, and manages to beat the Arbico convincingly in both our Fear and Crysis tests.

It can’t match the Eclipse Elite i85n98GTX’s gaming performance, but the CyberPower Gamer Infinity GT is a more stylish and generally higher-performing system. The specifications are impressive: 4GB of RAM, a 22in Chimei monitor with a digital input and Creative 5.1 speakers offer a rounded entertainment package that’s good enough for multimedia playback and the odd bit of office work.

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Phoenix (Windows 7 edition)

    First submitted two months ago with Windows Vista installed, the CyberPower Gamer Infinity i7 Phoenix has had a makeover. And the results are good.

    UPDATE: CyberPower Gamer Infinity Quad GT power desktop PC

    Quad-core chips haven't perhaps come of age in the way we might have expected a few months ago. But for the floating voters, the newly trimmed (chopped even) price tag of the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Quad GT could swing the balance in favour of quad-core.

    It’s big, it’s fast and it’s very impressive. The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Crossfire GT is the most expensive but also by far the fastest gaming PC we tested this month.

  • CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite review

    CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite

    The CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite is a strong budget desktop PC performer, albeit some way behind the Chillblast Fusion Osiris and Arbico Elite 8850 Pro.

    Update: CyberPower Gamer Infinity XT Elite desktop PC

    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.
