Gaming rig is packed with goodies

Boutique computer maker iBuyPower has announced the latest addition to its gaming desktop line. The new computer is called the Erebus and it is highly customizable with a variety of options for RAM, processor, and storage among other things.

The entry-level machine starts at $1,249, and has an Intel Core i5-2400 processor and a liquid cooling system inside. It also features 4GB of RAM, GTX 550Ti graphics, 500GB of storage, and Windows 7 Home Premium. The Erebus line gets much more expensive from that starting point, as most customizable gaming machines are prone to do.

The high end Erebus-V3 gaming desktop has an Intel Core i7-990X Extreme processor, a custom liquid cooling system with six 120mm fans. The mainboard is a liquid cooled Rampage III extreme from Asus and the PC has 12GB of RAM. Graphics is via a trio of GTX 580 Superclocked video cards. The rig also has dual 96GB SSDs for storage and a 2TB HDD for main storage. Rounding out the features is a Blu-ray drive. That high-end machine starts at $6,899.

“After two years of hard work and we are proud to unveil this ground breaking system.” said Darren Su, Executive Vice President of iBUYPOWER.  “Erebus’ custom built liquid cooling system will allow gamers to push the overclocking envelope, delivering unparalleled performance and creating the ultimate gaming experience.”
 

Erebus system are available now.

I have no problem with reviewing a PC that also has ads on the site. However, the problem to me is that this does not seem to be a good value even for a prebuilt system.

There are so may systems on iBuyPower now that you could configure a similar system using what is on the site, and probably for less money. Even ignoring the fact that one could build the system, I dont know what this model brings that is new, unique, or a better value than what you could configure already.
