It's the kind of PC you would've paid $2,500 for back in the day, and for multimedia users it comes highly recommended; it has the power to quickly complete tasks with photos and video, while keeping a little in reserve for moderate to hardcore gaming."

"...the wiring was superb...put together with the kind of care and craftsmanship the behemoth manufacturers can't offer.at a fair price."


Hardcore SIM Racer, 2002

Gamer's Edge™

"Like a well-tuned race car, its parts obviously were collected and assembled with performance and reliability in mind with a generous amount of upgrade-ability should you choose to add some features down the road. The bottom line on the Velocity Micro Gamers Edge SX [Athlon 1900+XP, $1409]; If, like most of us, you simply can not afford the "bleeding edge" systems and still demand no compromise in your gaming equipment investment, Velocity should be at the top of your shopping list."
