Have a big-ass 4K TV? Then you would probably want to play your favorite PC or Steam games on it as opposed to game console or even a regular PC. Lucky for you, the days of black, towering chassis has gone, so you can actually don’t feel ashamed of putting a PC in your living – making your favorite room in the home a true entertainment center. The Maingear Drift Steam Machine and Gaming PC is one such example. It is the latest to join the Steam revolution, offering both a Steam Machine for steam gaming and a PC, or gaming PC to be more precise, for PC titles. Packed into its beautiful unibody aluminum chassis is the latest in gaming technology, including Intel Core i7-4790 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 or AMD Radeon R9 290X GPU, which promised 4K gaming experience so you can better utilize your under utilized UHD TV.
Better yet, it is said to whisper quiet (we prefer to say ‘dead quiet’ if it is really that silent) – thanks to an Epic 120 Liquid Cooling system, coupled with a well thought-out chassis that promotes airflow. Fanless design is kind of a big deal, cos’ the last thing anyone wants is a device that makes a whole of ding when you are bashing through virtual jungle or watching a movie. The rig is designed to support up to 16GB of DDR RAM and is capable of holding two 1TB SSD and a 6TB HDD. Since it is also a PC, you will also get to access Windows 8.1 app store and catch a movie or two from popular apps like Netflix, Hulu and more.
Like the rest of Maingear’s rigs, Drift is totally upgradable to the max (if you have the dough to spare) and can be customized with Maingear’s true automative paint finish. If the latter is not enough to quench your appetite for vanity, then hold out for the Drift Super Stock edition that will come in a special bodyshell travel case and a Steam OS version. Look out for the latter in November, but for now, you can order the regular Drift, customizable as mentioned earlier, over at Maingear web store, starting from $949. Go check it out.
