Gladiator 1155 i5 4.4GHz Bundle

Up Close Gladiator i5 overclocked Bundle

Up Close

Obviously as the system is pre-built and pre-overclocked, then packaging is vitally important. The last thing you need is the postman wobbling the cooler free from its mount. Thankfully Aria provide a very sturdy box and more bubble packaging than you could ever hope to see to ensure that the bundle arrives in mint condition.

Even further, the anti-static bag is adapted to keep everything covered so you don't have any fears when taking the Gladiator out of the box. Gladiator i5 Bundle Gladiator i5 Bundle  

Another great touch is the inclusion of the motherboard box and all the relative periphery items that you would have should you have purchased the items separately.

Finally here is the bundle as it arrives. Everything in place ready to plug in and go. Gladiator i5 Bundle Gladiator i5 Bundle  

The board used is the MSI P67A-G45, in B3 revision so you know that the SATA issue that plagued early P67 released wont be an issue. Two PCI-E slots cover your graphics requirements and, as you can see, the connectivity is well covered with everything from SPDIF to USB 3.0. Gladiator i5 Bundle Gladiator i5 Bundle  

RAM is handled by 4GB of Mushkin Silverline, rated at 1333MHz, 9-9-9-24. An Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 is used to keep the CPU cool. Gladiator i5 Bundle Gladiator i5 Bundle

Storage options are plentiful. It's a slight shame to see the G45 only use vertical sockets. We can't imagine that the cost difference between vertical and the more normal horizontal sockets is that bad. It's something to be aware of if you plan on using two very long GPUs.

Just a little touch that demonstrates the care with which the system has been built, look at the cable routing for the CPU fan. Gladiator i5 Bundle Gladiator i5 Bundle

This bundle is one of the best I have ever seen for the value for money.

I don't like bundles myself because i'm a do it yourself type of person but for someone who isn't confident in building their own PC or overclocking and on a budget, this is definietly the bundle you should buy. All you need to do is add a PSU, case, HDD and GPU, something like the CM 690 II ADV a 6850, Samsung F3 1TB and a 500/600W PSU and for around £600 including the bundle you have yourself a decent little gaming rig.Quote

You lucky Americans pay a lot less than us Brits for hardware plus you get mail in rebates and don't have to pay 20% tax, sometimes I hate being British
