Vadim Computers is currently one of the biggest European players in the high-performance systems' business. When playing in the same league as some of the biggest names, such as Alienware and VoodooPC, it's pretty difficult to stay on top. However, judging by the pure numbers of the latest INTEL LQX series, they seem to do a great job.
The LQX D771G2-Crossfire is, as it name suggests a system that uses INTEL's LGA 771 architecture. What that means is pretty simple: 2 Xeons 5335, each offering 4 cores for a total of 8 independent CPU cores. The FSB is set at 1333MHz, which matches exactly the speed of the FB-DIMMs. Speaking of which, the total amount of memory is 4GBs, which is really nice, provided you use an OS capable of working with all that Ram (64 bits only!). Throw in a modular PSU made by Enermax and with 850W of power onboard you're ready to go.
By default, this PC uses two X1950XTX cards that run in Crossfire mode so games won't be an issue even at high resolutions. And to complete the multimedia experience, the system also comes with Creative's X-Fi Xtreme Music and a fully functional Vista Ultimate license. Overall, Vadim Computers' octa-core PC is indeed a stellar performer especially in multi-threaded applications but it can also offer a great gaming experience.
Vadim Computers is UK-based and because of that prices are announced in pounds instead of U.S. dollars (or Euros if you come from the E.U.). However, a quick conversion will reveal that the LQX D771G2-Crossfire system can go as high as $9000 and that's without any taxes. So if you want your own V8 gaming rig, you'd better have the right amount of money.
