Each time a new video card hits the market we can expect a rush of individual companies tossing their own branded versions of the card onto the market and computer makers announcing new systems using the video card. This is the case with the AMD HD 6800 family video cards that were unveiled last week. The cards are now being crammed inside some nice gaming rigs from iBUYPOWER.
iBUYPOWER has a wide range of machines that span the gap from affordable gaming desktops and notebooks to high-end machines that only well-heeled gamers can afford. The newest additions to the line are affordable machines and include the Gamer Mage D295, the Gamer Mage D335, and the Gamer Paladin F820. The D295 is an AMD powered rig running a liquid cooled Athlon II X4 640 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and the new HD 6850 video card. The desktop also has a Blu-ray drive inside and a 700W PSU for $899.
The D355 is a higher-end offering with a liquid cooled Phenom II X6 1055T 6-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a Radeon 6870 video card. The PSU inside the machine is 800W, it has a 1TB HDD for storage, and a 64 GB SSD for the OS with prices starting at $1,239. If Intel CPUs are more your style the F820 has a Core i7 950 CPU with 6GB of RAM, a 6870 video card, 700W PSU, and a 1TB HDD starting at $1,369.
