Canada Computers: Ultimate Gaming Machine of 2003

When it comes to PC parts in Toronto, very few stores can rival Canada Computers selection or prices. Sure they don't have the most hardcore cooling or modding components, but if you're looking for that hot new Nvidia videocard, Intel motherboard or processor, they'll usually have it first.

From personal experience, their stores are usually quite busy, so if you exercise a bit of patience you can usually get what you're looking for. Their reseller rating is quite low , but to be honest, in this case I don't feel that it's a fair representation. In any case, after a few weeks of talking back and forth, Canada Computers sent us over their "Ultimate Gaming Machine of 2003" for review... and I can tell you it's a real bad boy.

PCStats tends to focus on the individual hardware components a lot because that is what most of our readers tell us they look for when upgrading. But, every now and then we like to break loose, and relax with a full system review.

With that in mind, it was quite a pleasure to test out this little silver rig which came fully equipped with all the bells, whistles, and bright neon lights that you could ever want. It also helped that it is was one of the fastest machines on the market too.

Canada Computers Ultimate Gaming Machine

Canada Computers built the system around an Intel Pentium 4 3.2 C processor on Intel's own D875PBZ "Bonanza" motherboard, backed up by 1GB of OCZ's EL PC3500 DDR memory and an nVIDIA GeForceFX 5900 Ultra reference videocard. That's not all, the system also packs in an SB Audigy 2 Platinum sound card, two 80GB Seagate Serial ATA HDD's (in RAID-0) and a Sony DRU-510A DVD+/-RW drive!

All of that hardware is powered by a KingWin KWI-450WABK 450W PSU and all of that is housed inside a very sharp looking aluminum KingWin case with blue cold cathode lights a plenty. Almost brings a tear to the eye doesn't it? Despite all the fans, the system is kept quiet with the help of the fan controller in the front the computer which allows you to dial in the fan speeds as needed.
