Velocity Micro Raptor DCX (Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800)

The Velocity Micro Raptor DCX delivers the fastest performance we've ever seen, thanks to an aggressively overclocked Core 2 Extreme CPU. Because its price is $1,000 above that of the competition, however, we can't help but feel as though Velocity is buying a championship. That and recent case innovations from other vendors prevent us from giving it a higher rating.

Alienware Area-51 7500 (Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800)

It's not the fastest PC (it's second), nor is it the most competitively priced, but Alienware's Area-51 7500 does have the most innovative case. With a wholly customizable lighting scheme in its new chassis, Alienware makes case lights functional, a trick no one has really pulled off yet. That and its fast performance make it stand above other current high-end PCs.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650

The CPU market is due for a lot of upheaval over the next 12 months, so you might be wise to wait for a clearer picture before plunking down $1,000 or so on Intel's new Core 2 Extreme QX9650 quad-core desktop processor. But if you want to claim ownership of the fastest multicore CPU around today, look no further.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850

The quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6850 keeps the desktop CPU performance belt tied firmly around Intel's waist at a price that helps offset the lack of sizable performance gains. New products at the end of the year may outclass this new chip when they arrive, but for now, the QX6850 reigns supreme.

Maingear X-Cube (Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800)

Maingear's sharp, tidy X-Cube packs a mostly powerful gaming punch. It loses a few steps due to Vista, and we wish it had a few more features. With so much in PC gaming in flux, we're also reluctant to recommend such a pricey purchase now. But if you need a fast, small gaming PC today, the X-Cube mostly delivers.

Systemax Sabre Core 2 Extreme X6800 2.93 GHz

The Systemax Sabre can't compete with the higher-end PC shops' design and innovation, but Systemax blows them away with its aggressive Sabre pricing. If you're a gamer or simply someone looking for a powerhouse desktop for less, this desktop is one of the best deals on the market, despite its relative lack of polish.

PowerSpec Extreme 9800 - Core 2 Extreme X6800 2.93 GHz

Its case design has room for improvement, but for pure bang for your buck WinBook's PowerSpec 9800, with its factory-overclocked Core 2 Extreme CPU, makes a tempting offer. Look elsewhere if you want to make a strong visual impression, but its performance compares well to systems that cost hundreds more.

Alienware Area-51 ALX (Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770)

Alienware delivers most of what we expect in a high-end gaming PC, but without 64-bit Vista support, the Area-51 ALX's overall performance is limited. It's the fastest thing going for PC gaming, but at this price we expect the complete package.

Falcon Northwest Mach V (Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800)

This newest Falcon Northwest Mach V isn't shy about its price tag, but it also dominated our gaming tests thanks to two fast ATI 3D cards and an overall top-notch configuration. The current uncertainty regarding next-gen PC gaming is the only issue holding this system back.
