With eight core processing, dedicated AMD graphics and high-performance components, the PC Specialist Vortex Odyssey PC delivers an impressive gaming experience.
AMD octa-core processing
Processing comes courtesy of an eight-core AMD FX-8350 processor that runs at a rapid 4.2 GHz. This impressive clock speed along with octa-core architecture provides fast, reliable gaming and offers optimal performance for multi-core supported software.
You can expect beautiful, highly detailed visuals from all the biggest and best modern PC games thanks to AMD Radeon R9 270X graphics. Capable of running most current-gen games at maximum settings with 1080p image quality, it's the ideal card for enjoyable and competitive PC gaming.
Turn the graphical intensity down a tad and you can experience beautiful graphics across multiple monitors at impressive resolutions and smooth FPS.
Built for gamers
From a Corsair PSU and Asus motherboard to 16 GB of Kingston RAM, PC Specialist computers only included components gamers would choose themselves.
And with a three-year labour warranty on top of the one-year parts guarantee, you can expect high-end and reliable enthusiast-level gaming for the foreseeable future.
When the time comes, there's plenty of room for expansion with space for additional PCI and PCIe hardware such as graphics, sound and wireless cards.
Along with ample expandability, the case features a high-airflow design, quiet cooling fans and blue LED lighting for effective, low volume computing regardless of how long you've been playing.
File storage comes courtesy a large 1 TB hard drive that offers plenty of space for game data, media and software.
Supporting this is a 120 GB solid-state drive. An ideal size for using as a dedicated OS drive or for installing your favourite games on, whatever it runs will benefit from greatly improved load and save times.
Gaming with Windows
The Vortex Hailstorm features Windows 8.1. The perfect OS for serious gaming, it's pared back and less demanding on resources than previous editions to let your components work on what's important.
The start screen now features Live Tiles, handy windows into your favourite programs and games that deliver important info and updates straight to your desktop – perfect for chatting or keeping up to date with stats on the fly.
However, should you prefer a more familiar desktop, Windows 8.1 reintroduces the Start button for a more traditional computing experience.
Connecting to your monitor is easy, with the choice between high definition HDMI and DVI connections and an analogue VGA port.
Adding accessories and backing up is simple with PS2 ports for gaming peripherals and ten USB ports for everything else. Two of the USB ports are USB 3.0, which transfers data up to 10x that of previous generations and makes light work of backing up even the largest folders to external storage.
Powerful and packed full of gamer-specific technology, the PC Specialist Vortex Odyssey Gaming PC is the ideal rig for any serious gamer.
