We like Alienware's take on the small scale gaming desktop, but the Origin Chronos shows that for just a little bit more money, true boutique PC vendors still have the performance edge thanks to their willingness to overclock.

The good: The Origin Chronos offers best-in-class gaming performance in a tidy, overclocked package.
The bad: Despite the Chronos' nice variety of options, gamers using multiple monitors will want to look for a system with room for multiple graphics cards.
The bottom line: The Origin Chronos shows the strength of small boutique vendors with a fast, affordable, and compact little desktop that I can recommend to any PC gamer.
