Spending thousands of dollars on a high end gaming system is not uncommon. Not only are we looking at top end over-clocked processors, huge hard drives, SSD’s (solid state drives), Blu-Ray DVD burners and multiple top end graphics cards, there are plenty of systems that can easily cost over $ 4,000. However parent’s aren’t really fond of shelling out that kind of money for a Christmas present, especially with college educations coming up, cars to buy and other bills that have to be taken care of as well. Have no fear though. There are some truly incredible gaming desktops available for under $ 1,500 that have most all of the features and power of the super expensive systems but in a much more affordable package.

For instance, the top of the line, biggest, baddest gaming desktop available, the Maingear Shift Super Stock has an Intel Core I7 2600K processor that’s been over-clocked to 5 GHz. It has 8 GB of DDR3 RAM for system use and has a 2TB hard drive for main storage and a Blu-Ray/DVD +/- RW combo drive. However, it also includes 2 120 GB SSD’s for high speed gaming storage to boost throughput which increases costs dramatically|But you’ll also find that it has. For incredible gaming graphics, this system also has three separate Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 video cards inside with 1 GB of RAM on each. All of this will cost just under $ 4,700.

In contrast, the Dell XPS 8300 is system priced just under $ 1,400 that has a regularly clocked 3.4 GHz Intel Core I7-2600 processor which is a quad core processor in it. It also has 8GB of DDR3 RAM which supports all of the functionality of the system including the operating system, Windows 7. For games, videos, music and other storage needs, Dell put in a 1.5TB hard drive but doesn’t include any ancillary SSD’s for high speed storage. To watch movies and load software, there’s a BD-ROM/DVD +/- RW drive. And for great gaming graphics, an ATI Radeon HD 5870 PCI 2.1 bus graphics card gives you support for up to three monitors off of a single graphics card. With a built in gigabit Ethernet controller, this system will give you all the speed and support you could ever want in a great gaming desktop.
