The AX1200 is chosen

"Maximum PC choose Corsair to power their Dream Machine."

Search News

Each year, Maximum PC magazine builds the “Dream Machine”, a computer that they feel represents the absolute state of the art in high performance desktop computing. It is a design that typically approaches the frontier of what can be achieved using the very best components available. This year’s Dream Machine features dual Intel® Xeon® 5680 CPUs, three NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480 video cards, and liquid cooling throughout. The performance of this computer is impressive, hitting an incredible 3DMark® Vantage CPU score of 91,806.

To meet the demands of this power-hungry computer, Maximum PC selected both the Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 PSU and 24GB of Dominator 1600MHz DDR3 memory for this system. While 2010 is the first year that a Corsair PSU was selected for the Dream Machine, it was the seventh year (out of the past eight years) that Corsair’s DRAM modules were featured.

“Every year, we are impressed to see what Maximum PC is able to accomplish with their Dream PC, and which components they select as best-of-class,” stated Andy Paul, President and CEO at Corsair. “This year, we are doubly honored that Maximum PC selected both a PSU and DRAM from Corsair for their ultimate system.”

More details on the Dream Machine 2010 can be found in the September 2010 print edition of Maximum PC magazine, or at Details on the Professional Series Gold AX1200 PSU and on Dominator memory can be found at

Aww maybe it's just Southampton then, literally drops to unplayable levels. But it's so cheap especially when we have Sky TV anyways.

Got the original with the map. And you really do need the map. The only gripe I had about that game was the cars were too realistic. IE - bloody slow. And it doesn't help matters when they want you to drive from Hoboken to central Jersey (the farms) and it's about 40 miles and the cars only do about 25mph. And as soon as you get them downhill and actually moving the pigs are all over you.

Fantastic game other than that though. Canna wait for the sequel.

It's a great game, well worth a play. I bought a hard copy new for a couple of quid a few years back, just about to reinstall for another playthrough.

You can pick it up very cheaply in the shops, just keep an eye open.

yer looks like i will be doing that lol,do you need to play the first one before the 2nd one

I just had a quick glance at both synopses, and they seem to be unrelated in that, the first is very much in the 1920's/30's looking at the very Capone style gangs where there were mass gunfights in the street etc. The new one is apparently based around the 1940's/50's post-WWII era instead. Reading up on it makes me want it even more tbh.

Notice: Receive Mafia for free with the pre-purchase of Mafia II or Mafia II: Digital Deluxe, now that’s just mean man I mean really mean man, we want it free without conditions, it’s an old game man, I will go and see don corleone and maybe he will put the word on the street that it’s time to have it for free.

The game is great and I just can't wait for the sequel to come out, damn americans who can get it the 24th when everyone else has to wait till the 27th ;D
but I am really considering to pre purchase ;D and might even try to find the extra money for the deluxe edition ;D. I seriously think its worth the extra ;D
