The system as sent was preconfigured with Windows XP and nothing else. This meant it was a simple matter of popping in my benchmarking DVD stuffed full of everything we run at Hexus and running the numbers. No installing of an OS, no messing about with motherboards in cases. Just turn it on and run, I wish it was that easy all the time. Here's a few shots of the system before we get on to the benchmarks.
