It almost goes without saying that we'd all love to have enough disposable income to be able to afford the best-of-the-best, top-shelf, ultra-high-end, no compromise products, whether it be a 36 foot Chris Craft Corsair with 840hp of Mercruiser under its decks (in the aft section, by the way, the wet bar and mini fridge are in the bow) or perhaps the fastest Gaming Rig money can buy.  Fortunately for many of you, the technically elite members of our audience, an ultra-high-end Gaming Rig can be built with your own hands and a few key off-the-shelf components.  However, semi-custom pre-built systems can offer features and build quality that the average enthusiast may not be able to furnish on their own.  Teak-lined side panels anyone?  Custom cooling for those sultry summer nights?

This is the niche', or should we say market segment, that the folks at Voodoo PC are targeting for service, with their line of premium Gaming systems, Workstations, Media Centers and Home Office PCs.  Of course, when we contacted Voodoo for a look at one of their latest rigs, we went for the jugular.  It's a baaaad OMEN...No, really.  It is.  The Voodoo OMEN a121x CrossFire Extreme Gaming System to be exact.

Delving briefly into the OMEN CrossFire's specs, you'll note this system is built around ATI's recently released CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset, on an Asus motherboard, driven by a highly overclocked Athlon 64 FX-60 at 2.95GHz guaranteed stable and warranted from the factory for 1 to 3 years. 3D Graphics are rendered with a pair of the fastest GPUs ATI has to offer in CrossFire mode - the Radeon X1900 XT. 800Gigs of 7200 RPM Hitachi RAID 0 storage array serves up the file system, along with 2GB of low-latency Corsair 3500LL Pro memory and a Creative Labs X-Fi to keep the tunage on key.  To say this system is decked out would be an understatement but we'll dig deeper on this later.

Voodoo offers a standard 1 year warranty which covers hardware, labor and even return shipping, at their discretion.  Backed up by toll-free and Live Chat Tech Support (limited hours noted above), you do get a whole lot for your money, but some of you may ask if all this high-end flash really worth it?  We'll try to cover that angle for you as well in the pages ahead.
