"Over the years I have written a number of game reviews for Overclockers Club, and occasionally performance analyses for these games. The way I work through these is to swap through the different graphics cards I have in my collection and then work through the settings to achieve a target frame rate of 60 FPS. You may have noticed I do not do these very frequently, and there is a reason for that. I only have one desktop and it is not always possible to take it down and then apart for this kind of testing. Sometimes I need to get to another review or sometimes to another project entirely. Basically getting these articles done just does not work well when you only have one system that you use for everything. So I have finally done something about that and decided to build a second system, specifically for testing."
