The Bitfenix Prodigy has proven one of the most popular enthusiast cases, when we reviewed it in June this year it took our top award. Building on the success of the Prodigy, Overclockers UK decided to devote a whole gaming range to the Mini ITX wondercase. Today we are looking at the higher specified Prodigy Arctic Gaming system from Overclockers, with a starting price around a thousand pounds.
Overclockers have a huge following in the UK – they sell a plethora of components and they also build their own systems. While purist enthusiast users will surely look horrified, there are plenty of people who don't have the time, or skill set to build their own own gaming rig.
The company offer a variety of configurations which you can see over here. If you opt of the free software, operating system and are happy with a low profile HD5450 then the asking price drops to £980.00. Not really a ‘Gaming system' but perfectly suited for high definition media duties.
Our configuration today includes the high end KFA2 GTX680 LTD OC V2 graphics card and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 BIT OEM for £1,463.99 inc vat.
