Aria Dominator 560Ti Review

Up Close

As you can see the Dominator Ti comes in a special nVidia branded version of the CM690 II case. Unlike some of the more outlandish branded items we've seen this is reasonably tasteful with only the green piping giving much of a clue. Of course the large nVidia logo window will give the game away to the more knowledgeable, but it's a nice change from the generic square windows.

The top panel has a large selection of inputs and outputs. If you're still crawling around under your desk the benefit of these can't be overstated.

Far and away the most wonderful thing to anyone who has purchased a full system before is the inclusion of everything that you'd get if you purchased the items separately. If you've ever brought a system from a high-street retailer, mentioning no names, you'd be lucky to get a recovery disk and a side of A4. This makes any upgrading or adjustments a royal pain in the arse. Not so with Aria.

There is such a wealth of included cables, manuals and the like that it is potentially overwhelming, but by keeping them in a separate box you can ignore them if you prefer a more plug and play experience, or dive straight in if you're a tinkerer.

The benefits and value for money this gives cannot be overstated. Instead of wondering exactly what companies do with all the extra gubbins they don't send you, or having to purchase an extra SATA cable just because they didn't include one, Aria make sure that if it came with one of the products in the system, then you've got it in the box.

I was impressed with this rig, i'm usually against prebuilt systems but this ones actually a good deal and like Tom said this one has been built well and not just thrown together.Quote

I'm a bit 50/50 on the case I don't dislike it but the black and green just doesn't do it for me, I must say I like the build qaulity and the pictures I think do it justice. Also a nice beefy corsair psu 8gb of mushkin ram a nice ssd and the 560ti etc all for that price prebuilt is really good I think, I take my hat off to aria. Now if only I could afford this with a 570 I would be in heavan I reckon.....Quote

The side of that actual case they used isn't that pretty and could have more bling lights. No I agree would like to know what only gives it a 9. Did it come in a ugly box ?Quote
