Mid-Range ComputingWhile budget systems should mainly be constructed with reliability and price in mind, with performance a fairly distant third consideration, mid range systems have a slightly different order of priority. Reliability is still #1 priority, but performance and price are in a sort of tie when building a mid-range system. Performance isn't of the utmost importance in this type of system, but it's also not ignored nearly as much as a plain old budget system is. Similarly, price isn't of utmost importance either, but buyers building a mid-range must be mindful of the price of components nonetheless. Performance and price don't lag too far behind reliability for mid-range systems, in other words.
With that information in mind, read on to find out our picks for best mid-range components this week.
