CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 budget desktop PC review

£499 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 certainly looks the part. Its space-age looks are enhanced by green internal illumination, glowing brightly from its transparent side-panel.

The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 certainly looks the part. Its space-age looks are enhanced by green internal illumination, glowing brightly from its transparent side-panel.

The optical drive is accessed via a large door, emblazoned with silver trim and a vertical power indicator. The case is almost cavernously spacious, with plenty of expansion room. The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750's motherboard is small, but there’s no add-in sound card and two memory slots are empty, making pain-free upgrades a breeze.

The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 is the first chart system to use AMD’s triple-core Phenom X3 8450 processor, and the performance scores don’t look great. Scoring only 88 points, the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 is left well behind in our WorldBench 6 real-world tests.

Despite its name, the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 is also the slowest performer here at games. Powered by a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 3650 it manages less than half the gaming performance of Eclipse's Evolution i84n88GS and its superior GeForce 8800 GS graphics card.

The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750's 19in Hanns-G HW191D display is a more minimal, reserved-looking monitor than the Hannspree XM New York provided with every other system here, although it provides equally good performance.

The CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 comes with a large 500GB hard drive – around double the capacity offered by most of the competition. It also comes with a three-year warranty.

Depending on your point of view, the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 750 looks either incredibly cool or ridiculous. Performance-wise, it doesn’t quite live up to expectations.

    The CyberPower Gamer Ultra Triton's Phenom processor did offer good value for money – until the Intel Core i5 750 came along and ruined it all.

    Based on the familiar CoolerMaster Elite 330 case, CyberPower’s Gamer Ultra 930 looks much like the other sub-£500 systems. But a look inside reveals a different beast.

    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.

    The ultra-quiet CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition has plenty to offer, despite a disappointing benchmark result.
