Many people don’t have the time or expertise to build a new system so there is still a large market for pre-built computers. There are quite a number of companies who will happily build you a gaming machine, from the smaller custom builders such as PCSpecialist to the large multinational companies such as Dell/Alienware.
Today we are going to look at a gaming machine from a company called Palicomp. You may not have heard of them before but they have actually been around for over ten years.
We are going to be looking at the Palicomp Alpha Pulse which is one of their custom gaming systems. It’s priced around the £1400 inc. VAT mark and features an overclocked Core-i7 processor and a top-end nVidia GeForce GTX 670 graphics card.
