Poweroid.com 8202

These days, £2,000 gets you a lot of computer, and the 8202 from Poweroid.com -- a system builder specialising in high-end hardware -- is definitely a lot of computer. There may be a vogue in some circles for small-form-factor PCs, but the 8202 is more Leviathan than Lilliputian. Inside the 8202's impressive black-and red liveried case lurks a 3.2GHz, 800MHz-FSB Pentium 4, a gigabyte of memory, a 128MB Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card, dual hard disks providing 286GB of storage and much more. If you want a well-engineered PC that'll run a wide range of demanding applications with ease, then you should give the Poweroid.com 8202 a look. It may not represent the very leading edge of desktop PC technology (for that, you're looking at a 64-bit Athlon 64 FX-51 system), but you do get plenty for your money.
