The age of the gigahertz is here, and Xi Computer has one of the first 1GHz CPUs. If having a speed-of-light processor isn't enough to make you run out and buy one, try these specs on for size: Accented with translucent orange, the MTower features 128MB RAM, 20.4GB hard-drive space, four free bays, four free PCI slots and two free ISA slots. The Sound Blaster Live Value audio card and a Logitech subwoofer speaker system should give anything playing on the 8X DVD drive extra oomph. An Internet connection comes via a 56Kbps modem. A standard one-year warranty applies.
