If gaming's your main interest, this is the performance Ivy Bridge PC for you, thanks to its fantastic GTX 670 graphics card


4.6GHz Intel Core i5-3570K, 8GB RAM, 23.6in 1,920×1,080 display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


The PC’s front panel has two USB ports and the usual 3.5mm headphone and microphone ports. You don’t get many ports at the back, either. There are six USB ports, of which only two are USB3. There’s also one PS/2 port, an optical S/PDIF output, 5.1 analogue surround sound outputs and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

The wired keyboard and mouse aren’t very exciting either, but they’re functional and comfortable to use, as is generally the case with Logitech’s budget sets. The keyboard’s a little rattley and the texture of its keys is a little rough, but otherwise there’s little to complain about. The supplied 23.6in Asus VS247H monitor is excellent, and has DVI, VGA and HDMI inputs.

This is an outstanding PC and, thanks to its massively powerful Nvidia GTX670 graphics card, a brilliant buy for gamers. If you’re into producing your own multimedia content or watching High Definition movies then the Chillblast Fusion Vantage is a better all-rounder. a BD-RE drive and 16GB of memory compensate for the Fusion Vantage’s slightly less powerful graphics card.
