This looks like a textbook computer, but an overclocked CPU is just one of the boutique PC surprises in the Velocity Micro Vector Campus Edition.

-- brown senior editor for CNET they're gonna take a look at the velocity micro vector campus version. This is a -- and nine mainstream desktop has a few boutique PC kind of performance tweaks to it. Opera overall this is sort of designed offered mainstream computing optical if you need a lot of fast CPU power. So if you know velocity micro -- the should look like a pretty familiar case companies use the sort of squared off violent designed for a lot of years now. That's pretty nice pretty clean I may be -- -- boring at this point but. Overall the certainly worst case that there's those kind of hard to complain Francis is pretty straightforward there's a dvd burner here -- a spare optical drive slot -- top. That here you have -- SD card reader on the side there's a viewing panel appeared to Nestle touch. And here you have a couple USB two ports as well as analog audio jacks and firewire. Here's a graphics card to get a couple of dvi ports as well as the meaning each you might actually need an adapter you wanna -- of full size H my cable. Get -- one audio ports -- -- to new SP three taxable those are great features. One picture the recent CNET boutique PCs that you get an assistant is a nice clean interior outlast -- -- it's as good job at this. And you can see that airflow is pretty much perfect here all the cables are out of the way they can really easy to upgrade or just -- maintain system. And it would keep Cox's systems you have a core I 53570. KC PU here at Intel's third generation either bridge chip. And it's actually over clock or velocity is bump the CPU speed up to four point three -- And access system one of the fastest we've seen its price range -- graphics card looks nice -- big but it's only GeForce GTX 560 SE card which is sort of -- -- card. It'll play most games at nineteen by ten you don't really have to worry about sort of basic gaming capability. But if you wanna get say -- detail levels or -- high resolution is really not gonna do it. If -- -- eight gigabytes -- 16100 megahertz DDR three ram here and you've got two slots XP and if you want to. -- front is a one terabyte hard drive also couple other slots if you an attic for storage. They -- -- the system was -- available while routed -- Blu-ray player for example would make it a little bit more capable. But if you want -- system has straight ahead fast CPU performance they hear a math majors science majors means that crank through whole lot of data this is actually pretty -- -- -- -- -- velocity micro spectrum can't.
