    There is a new player in the custom gaming PC market space boasting the quality and performance of a boutique builder while offering the most affordable gaming computers on the market. Ballistic Gaming PC is officially opening its doors Wednesday November 25, 2009 and as part of their launch Ballistic has partnered with MaximumPC.com and TomsHardware.com to giveaway two Ballistic high-performance gaming computers starting today which will include Intel's i7-920 processor and NVIDIA's top video card the GTX 295.

    Consumers have less disposable income in this current economic climate and so Ballistic offers the best possible deal to make sure their customers are always getting the lowest price. However, Ballistic does the unfathomable by, in addition, offering a 3 year parts & labor warranty with home-grown US based lifetime tech support. Ballistic has taken this simple philosophy and interwoven it into every aspect of its business.

    In today's bear economy the idea of opening another ultra high-end, ultra expensive boutique gaming computer company was not very appealing, but the idea of running any company without the quality and service of a boutique vendor seemed downright wrong to Ballistic's founder Paul Singh.

    Ballistic Gaming PC got its humble start building gaming and high-performance computers for other companies as a contract manufacture. Over the next 10 years Ballistic's reputation for quality became better known and the number of customers requesting their services increased dramatically. However, rather than stay in simply the business to business market Ballistic made the decision to bring its expertise to the consumer market.

    Great customer service and low prices are all important factors to a business, but quality is the lynch pin that ties a business to the wings of success. Ballistic has had 10 years to perfect its 72 hour testing method and it is unlike those at any other boutique vendor not to mention competitors with equivalent pricing; Ballistic utilizes real-in-game testing to make sure that the consumer is receiving a gaming PC that truly provides them with the most immersive experience possible. This includes frame rate monitoring, artifact testing, 24 hour burn-in testing - all of it to ensure the highest quality product for the consumer. Ballistic also carries only the highest quality components because it does not want its customers to suffer through computer issues two years after purchase. "We refuse to carry sub-par components and hardware, it's useless and expensive to us in the final evaluation and annoying to the consumer who is entrusting us with the responsibility of ferreting out bunk products from their computer. We take that responsibility seriously," says Singh.

    All of these advantages are wrapped in an incredibly affordable package. Ballistic Gaming PC is a company built around the understanding of the current economy and is offering what a lot of gamers have been asking for a long time; a company that has affordability while maintaining the highest quality and performance. And though these seem to be two opposing ideas that shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence Ballistic Gaming PC and its founder Paul Singh have done exactly that.

    I sometimes wonder how many members of TPU buy pre-built. I mean how can you be a member of this site for any reasonable amount of time and buy pre-built. I mean really?

    I used to buy pc's aswell, up untill 2001, i've built myself 3 custom pc's by then, and many for others. There's nothing greater than building your own!

    However, there seems to be a market for it, otherwise there wouldn't be any Alienware either.

    Good luck to them!

    Never buying prebuilt again personally.

    Unless X company does an insane deal and buying a rig from them works out cheaper.

    I used to buy them. Then I stumbled upon TPU and was converted.
    But sometimes prebuilt PCs are pretty decent for the price. Like the Acer Predator, you can't really argue with that price. And for an inexperienced user, these are great choices.

    Ive bought two, Packard Bell and a Compaq Gaming PC (before I was all into building my own). Still have my compaq and all but the video card with it works. Had an MSI K8N Neo 2 Mobo, Athlon 3800+ 2 GB of DDR 400 memory, ATI 9800 Video card and a 250 GB SATA drive. Wasn't bad and got it with LCD, KB, Mouse, Speakers, Printer, for like 1200 bucks. Gaming GXZ5000 or something it was. Best one I had. I think I discovered either this forum (long time ago) or another place when I was reading about overclocking. Problem was, that mobo had a FSB lock on it, would only go to 220. Anywho, I am off topic. Id buy a custom PC just for the awesomeness of it, even now :)

    Mine is bought as whole, except ram, hdd and coolers upgrades, overpaid 50 LS, which would be something like 90 $ i think. :D
    But common, GTX 295, lol... Would be cheaper to go with ATI, and HD5870...

    Ditto

    Back on topic, depending on the premium over building your own, sometimes a product that comes with a high level of service is worth spending a little extra on, especially if you have the need for no hassles.

    EDIT: Just entered both contests. Can't hurt to get free stuff, now can it? lol.
