“I commissioned Top Flight Computers to build The Racers’ Edge for a very specific purpose – to get the highest performance and quality iRacing simulation experience, which means getting the most out of my 49” widescreen 4k 144Hz gaming monitor.
WOW…what a system! It’s a premium price, but in this case you very much get what you pay for.
There is a price premium for custom computer systems that is almost never worth it, especially since I am perfectly capable of assembling my own rig. Top Flight Computers is more than worth the premium, because Top Flight Computers doesn’t just cobble together a bunch of parts bought on the cheap.
Chris’ rigs are purpose built, ENGINEERED hardware solutions, optimized for very specific requirements.
The Racers’ Edge is a perfect machine – lightning fast, reliable, and whisper quiet (despite NINE fans). The price premium for an engineered system vs. an assembled system is only worth it if the execution and the customer experience are flawless, and Top Flight Computers is all that and more.
Chris has built an incredible company in Top Flight Computers. It’s an immense challenge to build a successful computer hardware company, yet Chris has thrived despite this environment. He’s thrived because he understands how to run a business as well as he understands computer hardware.
Well done Chris – you’ve earned my business for life!”
