PURPOSE - Entry Level-Mid Gamer
This rig is designed for entry level to mid gaming experience. Having an awesome triple core adds to multi-tasking for those who want to do a lot of things at the same time... browsing, chatting, and even answering a call in skype, all these while doing a round of MMOFPS (Massive Multiplayer Online First Person Shooter) in window mode. The GT240 Video Card adds flavor and gives the regular gamer a feel of decent frames per second. This awesome GT240 coupled with a 18.5" BenQ LCD and the Ozaki WR325 sound system would make movie viewing a breeze and a totally excellent experience.
The February 2011 rig of the month is firmly built on one of the rock solid motherboards in the market - the ECS black series motherboards. And finally, to give it a steady flow of electricity... this setup is powered by a very reliable and affordable FSP Supersonic 500watts, which has a current standing 80+ rating and active PFC.
Imagine all this for a 23k pesos price tag... that's an awesome bargain. Mid-level gaming armed with sturdy multi-tasking capabilities. This setup is definitely a CERTIFIED : PVP (Performance, Value and Practicability)!!
