    V3 Gaming, manufacturer of high-end computer systems, has partnered with NVIDIA to offer the Salvo Desktop Computer for $599. The V3 Salvo features the brand new GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card and the 2nd Generation Intel Core family of processors. The system itself is geared towards bringing a custom gaming computer experience to a larger audience of gamers.

    Thanks to the GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card from NVIDIA, the V3 Salvo has plenty of gaming chops. The GTX 550 Ti is a compact yet powerful DirectX 11 GPU that is great for small form factor and budget computer systems. It supports NVIDIA’s CUDA, PhysX, and 3D Vision technologies for the most realistic gaming experience possible. The card has 1GB of GDDR5 memory and packs in 192 CUDA cores for efficient gaming performance in the latest game titles.

    The V3 Salvo also supports 2nd Generation Intel Core series processors, which offer unmatched gaming performance for a low cost. Rounding out the Salvo is 4GB of DDR3 1333MHz memory, the MSI H61MU-E35 motherboard that supports USB 3.0, a 500W power supply, 500GB 7200RPM SATA II hard drive and, like all V3 Gaming desktop computers, liquid cooling by Asetek. “We feel that the Salvo is a perfect entry point for any gamer looking to step up the next level of computer performance.” said Thomas Gribble, Product Manager at V3.

    To satiate the curiosity of gamers, V3 states the Salvo in its stock configuration can pump out an average of 40 frames per second in Crysis 2, the graphically demanding first person shooter game title that hits store shelves today. Of course, the Salvo is highly upgradeable for even better performance. All of this gaming muscle can be purchased direct from V3 Gaming PC starting at $599.

    I love how all these companies come out with these "gaming" systems and slap a GTX 550 in there. I guess you could play games with it at a pitiful resolution and no way it is playing Crysis at 40fps at a decent resolution.
    Eh, I guess that's why I will continue to build my own pcs.

    still better then most oem "gaming" pc's which have gt 210 etc

    also it says "crysis 2" instead of crysis

    maxing out crysis 2 only requires something g92 based or similer, this is faster.

    The 550 is a decent card as long as your gaming on 1050p and lower, and not cranking up the AA.

    Pretty decent to be honest. Quick OEM build with nice hardware.

    For being a Prebuilt It's a great system with the exception It should come standard with the I3 2120 but for $599 it's not bad....and a 550 isn't a bad card...It's slightly better than the 5770.....Sure you could do better building yourself but not much (for the price)
