Priced at $2,499, the Falcon Northwest Talon has achieved an attainable position in the world of gaming system, and it competes well with the performance oriented PCs that are twice pricier than this model.
It can be touted to have the strong single card gaming performance which can be matchless at this price when compared to other models of various brands in the market.
It also has the effective heat management system, and apart from its 1.5GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 graphics card, the remarkable feature of the Falcon Northwest Talon is its new 4GHz Intel Core i7 875K CPU.
Though Talon does not have a Blu-ray burner, its dual-layer DVD burner is of importance, and the CPU’s elegant overclocking cannot be ignored along with its 1TB Western Digital Caviar black 7,200 rpm SATA 3.0 hard drive.
But to have a more powerful gaming system, you need to have a second graphics card slot, but unfortunately Talcon supports only one 3D card at full 16x bandwidth due to the limitations of the P55 Express chipset.
And this could be a downside which you might not appreciate in Falcon Northwest Talon. Another downside could be its fewer multimedia features because of its lower price.
Although the aim of the Falcon Northwest Talon is to highlight its overwhelming overclocking benefits, the main ability of this model is to streamline its configuration.
Thus, a device running on Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) that competes with effectuality with others in the market that cost twice its price, is definitely a worth buy as you will be taken by a surprise by its overall performance and structure.
