When it comes to gaming few configurations are going to be able to outperform the pair of water cooled GeForce GTX 480s we have in this Puget Systems computer. 

Closing Thoughts

I know a lot of people like to focus on price and we can’t deny that the review system we got today is expensive – just over $6000 to be blunt about it.  I don’t expect many readers to want to shell out that kind of cash for a system like this, but if you do, you can be sure you are getting all of the performance possible out of the hardware you select.  Yes you can buy these components off the shelf for a much lower price, but that isn’t really the point of boutique builders like this anymore.  

What is most important to me for this review is not the specifics of the benchmarks (which is why we didn’t bog down the review with them) but rather the experience and support that Puget Systems offered during the building process, testing phases and even post-delivery.  From the moment we placed our order on their website we felt like we were a part of the construction and testing of our own machine and not just because we were a member of the media getting special treatment.  Puget offers this same level of interaction, including the near real-time monitoring, benchmarking and photos, to all of their customers whether they spend $6000 or $1000.

If you are looking for a new PC and don’t want to bother with the hassle of building your own or just want someone that will be able to answer your support questions when you have them, then Puget Systems is a great place to start your quest.
