WCCF Recommended PC for the Year 2013 – $500 Mark and $1000 Mark

These prices were fetched using an automated tool and will tend to fluctuate though the approximate price should be $500.
That is because its is our firm belief that an SSD is optional in a Gaming PC, since the only thing it will affect is OS boot time and Game Level Boot Time.
The Xeon Phi Co-Processor is a brute beast and Intel’s top of the line high-performance compute accelerator which has been integrated in the world’s fastest supercomputer, the Guangzhou’s Tianhe 2.
That is relatively higher compared to 16 GB featured on Knights Corner but we are comparing DDR4 against GDDR5 here.
