Taking all the hardwork out of your hands the Vengeance Z68 OC earns its name with a 4.7 GHz overclock on the 2700K. You certainly wont be lacking for processing power.

The memory is of the 'lots of capacity, average speeds' variety. Considering that to get 2133MHz memory of this capacity you're forced to pay extortionate prices or use four sticks, and also how well the Z68 chipset handles memory bandwidth, this isn't as much of a detriment as one would expect. At least you've got the option of filling the other slots if you want, or dipping into memory overclocking yourself.

So what does all this mean in terms of the coarse Windows 7 rating? A very fine 7.7, with 7.8 for the memory and 7.9 for the graphics and storage. You certainly wont be wanting extra desktop performance

A good quality system but I would expect a more powerful Cpu Cooler, Say a H100 and a PSU of at least 750 wattsQuote

actuallythe 650 is more than enough to power the given parts. It doesn't allow for much headroom but for a pre-built system this looks to be very very decent.Quote

The CPU cooler is plenty powerful enough even with this big overclock. Equally the power draw of the GTX680 is so low that 650W is also more than you need.

Sure you couldn't go SLI without the upgrade, but if you're planning on that then you can configure it before purchase.Quote

The cable management on the back is amazing but the cables on the front could be put round the back for a tighter look IMO; however, compared to most pre-built systems I have seen, this is one of the best for cable management.Quote

At first I was stocked to see 650Watt PSU, abut after reading whole review, I would say, not bad.Quote
