We all know someone that loves computer games, but knows nothing about computers. They want a really fast system, but have no clue how to build one. This is where custom PC builders come in. The thing with many of them is that they are extremely overpriced and they really don’t treat the customer right. Recently we were contacted by Radioactive PC. They are relatively new company that was founded in 2003. They offered is one of their desktops to review and of course we accepted. The system they sent us is their Plasma Mainstream system.

There’s something about a Radioactive PC Gaming System that makes it stand out from the rest. As our small and loyal community of gamers and enthusiasts begins to grow larger we look forward to you joining us so that you too can see what it’s like to own a great PC.
The system was sent to us from Radioactive PC via FedEx. It was packaged in a large white box with the Radioactive PC logo on it. There are “This side up” stickers on the box as well. The box got to us in pretty good shape, I guess the FedEx guy didn’t hate the world they day it was delivered. Opening up the box we find everything inside. The box is packed with packaging peanuts.
Getting everything out of the box we first have the system that is inside the case box. That is usually normal, since the case box provides even more protection for you system. Also inside we find a smaller box that has all the extra connectors and everything for your motherboard, the 3 games we requested, a certificate of ownership, client binder, and a Radioactive PC t-shirt.
The client binder is a full-sized binder that has all the information about your system in it, the manuals, and all of the discs that came with the system. It is all nicely organized as well. Opening the case box up you can see the included Styrofoam keeps everything nicely protected.
Getting the system out of the box there are warning signs on the side and front of the box the warn you that there is foam padding on inside of the system and to remove it before you power the system on. Also there is protective plastic on the side panel window to protect it from scratches. When we open the case up we can see the protective foam. This foam keeps things from moving around during transit.
