Polywell Poly 925CV-3600

We know being a PC gamer can hit hard on the wallet (we understand how very grueling it can be) but since when is 2,900 clams a "budget" machine? And we want to know why for the Polywell Poly 925CV-3600's price you're stuck getting a Creative 7.1 audio system and not an LCD monitor (you can see where our preferences lie). All that said, at the end of the day PC Magazine gives the 3.6GHz P4, GeForce 6800-based Polywell a pretty good overall rating, and a 94/100 in the gaming category. Whatever.

Remember the sci-fi fake window?
