Erebus gaming desktop  (Source: iBuyPower)
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.

Is there no response from a DT editor about this blatant ad?

IMHO You've got a very small window in which to address this before you start loosing readers.

DailyTech is one of my startup tabs. Has been for many years. Without quick explanation you are about to loose a few thousand hits a year.

Lol, what do you want them to say? DT is a business...if you don't like it don't show up.
I love all these people who keep complaining about the same things DT is doing over and over (spelling, grammar, plagiarism), yet continue to show up and complain some more tomorrow.

DT is a business, but as an institution of 'journalism' it is supposed to be objective.

Posting advertisements as news is hardly objective. Especially when it has clearly been paid for.

Come on, even you put that word in quotes since you know the truth: news outlets get to choose where they fall in the objectivity scale. I think it's pretty clear where DT has positioned itself. For people to get outraged about this when it's hardly the first time something like this happened, I sometimes wonder why they don't just go give another, "more honest", site their views instead?

I personally have much bigger things to worry about. This didn't bother me one bit... was a good laugh. I'll be returning tomorrow.
