If you want a high performance system that can be used for gaming but aren't looking to spend several thousand for a prestige class system, the Cyberpower Gamer Infinity XLC comes with a $1400 base price tag with some solid features suitable for great gaming. It features a new Core i7-4770K processor, GeForce GTX 770 graphics card, Blu-ray compatible drive and two terabyte hard drive. Cyberpower also offers a huge range of customization that can allow you to get reduce features for a lower price or add in more if it isn't quite enough. I would highly recommend an SSD upgrade for extra performance. A similarly priced alternative is the iBUYPOWER Gamer Paladin D897
that features a solid state drive but a lower graphics card for roughly the same price. It is also customizable.
