Product information
Discover the latest and greatest PC games with the powerful PC Specialist Vortex Cyclone Gaming PC.

Quad-core Intel® performance


A powerful Intel® Core™ i5-4590 processor delivers the performance you need to game at your best. With a rapid 3.6 GHz clock speed, four cores and a 6 MB memory cache, it won't bottleneck or slow down regardless of how intense the on-screen action gets.

This is supported by 8 GB of Kingston RAM for smooth multitasking and responsive computing during memory-heavy processes and serious gaming.

NVIDIA graphics


Graphics come courtesy of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card that's capable of running graphically intense games like Bioshock Infinite and Call of Duty: Ghosts on medium to high settings without worry.

Older and less demanding games can benefit from the graphics being turned right up for the best MMO and RTS experience possible.

When the time comes the card can easily be upgraded thanks to two free PCIe slots, making the Vortex Cyclone a long term gaming proposition no matter how involved you get.

Cool case


The Vortex Cyclone's case not only looks great with its blue LEDs and side viewing windows, it keeps your components running as they should thanks to high-air flow to the processor, graphics card and vital internals. The fans are designed to operate quietly too so you can enjoy your games without distraction.

Gaming with Windows


Windows 8.1 is the perfect OS for serious gaming. Pared back and less demanding on resources than previous editions, it lets your components work on what's important.

Windows 8.1 gives you the choice between the customisable new home screen and the more familiar traditional desktop display, so you can explore the new layout and content or simply boot straight to what you know.

Cloud integration lets you automatically backup important files and games saves, meaning if you choose to upgrade components or find yourself gaming on a friend's machine , your precious saved game data is easily retrievable - simply log in with your email address to access your entire saved content library in seconds.

Secure storage


A 2 TB hard drive offers plenty of room for files, software, media and more while USB 3.0 connectivity makes light work of backing up even the largest documents and folders to external hard drives and flash storage.

Enjoy impressive modern gaming with the PC Specialist Vortex Cyclone Gaming PC.

Plays all my existing catalog of existing games on highest settings possible.

No issues so far except for the little small annoyances of the OS. You'll get a free upgrade to Windows 10 when that's released. Hopefully that will be a decent OS.

Plenty of USB ports. 8 is sufficient.
Does not include wi-fi card. However, Ethernet cable/USB Wi-Fi dongle can resolve this.

Minor down side is that it's sort of strange to have USB ports on the top of the case. This has became something of amusement now since it's so weird. It made it hard to work out which way up the case needed to sit on the desk. The side with the feet gave a big clue.

Windows 8 tile start screen is annoying. Downloaded a skin to make it look like traditional Windows. I am now happy.
Some programs like e-mail or skype hide the X. Learn to alt+F4.

DVD drive is noisy. You'll only have it running for the duration of a disc installation however.
