Palicomp Alpha Pulse Gaming PC Review

Rating: 8.0.

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.

    looks like a good selection of components but im not impressed with the case either. Thermaltake make shoddy cases generally. low cost materials etc.

  • Jonas

    looks like a nice system, but id rather build my own, as Henry said, dont like this case at all.

  • Just like me if you are a great fan of gaming computers then you should check out the online shop.

    Price increases in this case are reasonable and understandable.
    The world’s components are traded in dollars.
    At the time it was reviewed, the US dollar was relatively weak – with a value of around $1.65 to £1
    The pound now only buys just over $1.50 – which is a drop of almost 10%
    That 10% movement will translate into a cost increase of around the same value
    If a company submits a machine for review and changes it within 28 days, then we will launch a FULL investigation… But a change after many months where the source of the change is (a) clear and (b) outside the supplier’s control is fine

    We hope you agree 🙂
