The Intel Core i7 processor is the go-to CPU for multi-tasking, thanks not only to its vicious processing power but also its intelligent threading.
The i7 920 (2.66 GHz, 8 MB L3 Cache) CPU is at the core of Evetech’s Custom Built Power PC, available for R9499 (incl VAT).
The i7 PC is the cheapest in Evetech’s line, and it’s ideal for graphic intensive work such as 3D rendering, movie editing and graphic design. Onboard is an impressive array of tech, including Kingston 4 GB 1333 Mhz DDR3 RAM, a Seagate 500 GB SATA 2 7200 rpm hard drive, an X58 chipset motherboard and the NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT 512 MB graphics card (you would have to pay extra for the OS).
During our tests we found the system to be very stable, with a rock-solid board offering good expansion options. Gamers might find the Geforce 9600GT a bit lacking (you can upgrade the graphics card before ordering) but for graphic intensive work that requires a lot of processing power, this PC is ideal. It comes with a decent 24-month warranty, and is available from www.evetech.co.za or on 012-326-6547.
