Xi 4036 MTower Premiere

The Good Stellar 3D gaming performance; quick response time from tech support; quiet operation.

The Bad Need to remove multiple screws to open case; no empty accessible 3.5-inch bay.

The Bottom Line The Xi 4036 MTower Premiere is one of the fastest game PCs--just don't expect many frills.

Xi 4036 MTower Premiere

Xi Computer's 4036 MTower Premiere is neither the slickest-looking nor the most feature-packed performance system you can buy. With its 3GHz Pentium 4 processor and ATI Radeon 9700 Pro graphics card, however, the 4036 MTower Premiere is among the fastest game machines on the market. Its included flat-screen ViewSonic G90fb CRT monitor supports crisp graphics, and Creative's budget-priced Inspire 5.1 5300-series speakers hold up their end with rich surround sound for games and movies. You'd be hard-pressed to find such a cutting-edge 3GHz gaming machine for less than the 4036 MTower Premiere's sub-$3,000 price. Xi lets you upgrade some components on its site, but those people looking for pure speed and power will do well with the 4036 model.
