Why is the 930 only overclocked to 3.2Ghz? Could of stuck an air cooler on that for like $100, overclocked it to around 4Ghz, and blown that $7000 rig out of the water in WorldBench 6. Other than that, great review!

And great price to performance ratio should be in the pros, not the cons lol

man. seriously. the one thing that ticks me off about some reviews is that the reviewer company always treats DS's computers like pre-built systems. that's not what DS is about. DS is about custom PCs. "We did notice the lack of USB 3.0". Jeeze. it's a custom PC, made from 3rd party components. You want USB 3.0? You ADD a motherboard with USB 3.0 on the configurator, or you ask them yourself. Sheesh. Not that I'm hating on PCWorld, I like the mag, but seriously, I keep seeing this with all these "reviews".

I agree there are a few typos I would say in the article. The CPU was overclocked to 3.8GHz (they are working on fixing that) and the 'Con' of 'Great price-to-perofmrnace ratio' appears to be in the wrong category too!

Oh geeze. A 3.2GHz to 3.8GHz is kind of a big freaking difference. And ditto to what ablahblah said about how they treat the things like pre-builts.

Big thumbs down to the review as a whole, but thumbs up to DS for having an affordable monster PC reviewed for once instead of some overkill $7000+ rig.
