The 4th generation of their Leopard Extreme series is a veritable beast of a machine, boasting the latest Intel Haswell processors, support for up to 64GB of high-speed RAM, and a choice of graphics cards that would struggle to so much as wheeze under Steam for Linux.

Quad-core Intel Core i7-4820K @ 3.70Ghz
8GB DDR3 RAM (1866 MHz)
