iBuyPower Announces Pair of Sub-$1,000 Phenom Powered Gaming Rigs

/u69/ibuypower_579q6.jpg" width="228" height="237" style="float: right;" />There was a time when all $800 would get you was a crappy pre-built PC riddled with proprietary parts from a bulk OEM. If you wanted to build a low-cost PC without all the pitfalls of proprietary hardware, you had to roll your own. That all changed when boutique system builders began to pump out lower cost machines using off the shelf parts, and if that's the route you're looking to take, you have two new systems to choose from.

Boutique builder iBuyPower announced the availability of two new AMD Phenom II X6 powered machines, the Gamer Power 579Q6 and Gamer Extreme 520SLC available at Newegg and TigerDirect, respectively.

The $790 Gamer Extreme 520SLC sports an AMD Phenom II X6 1100T processor clocked at 3.3GHz, Nvidia GT 520 graphics card with 1GB of dedicated video memory, self-contained liquid cooler (hence the SLC in the model name), 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, 1.5TB hard drive (7200RPM), DVD burner, 12-in-1 memory card reader, 700W power supply, NZXT Gamma case, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

For $10 more, the Gamer Power 579Q6 features an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor clocked at 3.2GHz, 4GB of DDR3 memory, AMD Radeon HD 6850 graphics card, 1.5TB hard drive, 700W power supply, DVD burner, Xion Echo case, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
