The company Maingear PC introduce what's labeled a "green" (low power) gaming
PC called Pulse
In top configuration it's got a Core 2 Quad Q9400s CPU, up to 2x4GB DDR2 and a GF 9800GT 1GB Eco graphics card. All mounted in a Lian-Li PC-Q07 chassis.
To me this seems like a half measure:
- Even the top graphics is a bit too weak to qualify as a gaming PC.
- Using DDR2 instead of the lower voltage DDR3 makes it more power hungry than necessary.
Using the on board graphics an settle with one of the less potent CPUs will give you a nice little personal office computer though.
What do you think?
