Serious gamers fall into two categories. The first type is those who enjoy hotwiring together obscure components dug up from graves, adding liquid cooling systems and squeezing the last iota of heat tolerance out of an overclocked P4. The second lot are the ones who buy a gaming PC like they buy a console: pre-configured for max performance. The Aurora 7500 is for them
If you want a gaming PC that doesn't look like it was created with boy racers in mind, Shuttle's small, sleek but hugely powerful XPC P 2500G desktop is just the ticket.
