A performance powerhouse

This mighty, high-performing PC was built by hardcore gamers for hardcore gaming, and it certainly shows. Achieving a delicate balance of aggressive design and smart integration, the SHIFT provides a truly superior performance without breaking a sweat.

On the outside it looks like your classic desktop, elegant, simple, and refined. But on the inside, the SHIFT contains powerful components with plenty of room for expansion. This bad boy was designed to grow to fit your needs. And combined with the high-performance graphics, killer processor, and a huge 3TB hard drive, you got one bad machine beefy enough to tackle any tough task you throw at it.


What the experts are saying

Keeping it cool

Employing a vertical, heat stack design, heat dissipates out the top of the chassis while drawing cool air from the bottom. This means increased overclocking and performance potential.

Bold design

The SHIFT combines a sublime blend of a steel skeleton for strength, and beautiful brushed aluminum exterior to reduce weight and increase heat dissipation. So it's strong and functional as well as visually sharp.

Library quiet

With a revolutionary vertical heat dissipation layout, the SHIFT keeps your system cool by allowing hot air to naturally exhaust through the top of the chassis. Now that's smart and cool.
