Maingear's new All-in-One packshigh-end desktop components into a attractive looking machine with anexpansive, curved WQHD panel up front. It's a highly-customizable setup that's designed to provide the convenience of an All-in-One,without the compromises usually associated with the form factor.

If the idea of a gaming All-in-Onesounds a little ridiculous to you, you're certainly not alone. Suchmachines, wherein the motherboard and components – the CPU, GPU,RAM, etc. – are integrated into a single, display-packing unit, areroutinely underpowered, using mobile graphics cards and generallylacking the punch required for any kind of serious gaming.

Maingear is on a mission tochallenge that perception with the Alpha 34. There are a wide range of configurationoptions on offer from the company, but at its limit the machine canbe equipped with an Extreme edition Intel Core i7 processor, a choiceof AMD Radeon R9 390X or Nvidia GeForce Titan X graphics, as well asup to 32 GB of RAM, and 4 TB of SSD storage.

If you're at all familiar with current PC components, you'll know that those specs should equate to some impressive gaming performance.

What's more impressive is that theAlpha 34 manages to pack all that capable hardware into an attractive, slick-looking chassis, and one that puts a 34-inch 3,840 x 1,440 curved display upfront. It's also liquid cooled, meaning system noise should beminimum, and Maingear is using standard desktop components here,allowing for upgrades after the point of sale.

As you might expect, this all comes ata fairly hefty cost. Available now through Maingear's website, the machine starts atUS$1,999, but you can easily pay triple that figure if you're lookingto equip it with top-tier components.

I think I'll stick with building my own gear... much, much less expensive... even with a three monitor wraparound setup.
