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.

What's your degree in Chemistry, Physics, Biology? If it's not really relevant to the topic at hand so why bother mentioning it.

Assembling computers is very simple. White box makers like iBuyPower don't do anything different from what you could do easily yourself, and they care a lot less about your computer than you do.

Buying factory machines like HP, Dell and the other big names make can make a lot of sense because they can be really inexpensive in the low end (economies of scale and all that) but this particular machine is an example of a huge waste of money because it is built of off the shelf parts with a highly inflated price.

I mentioned having a degree because it shows that I have a reasonable ability to learn and use information, and despite this, I am somewhat intimidated by trying to build a computer. Despite how easy everyone says it is, I still think that assembling a computer requires a fair amount of expertise to mount all the components properly, do the wiring and install all the drivers and windows itself.

What I was trying to say is that different people have skills in different areas, and to call someone stupid because they are not skilled or confident in one limited skill set is insulting and unfair. There is more to life than building computers you know.

And I really dont desire any emotional attachment to my computer, even if it were to be derived from building it myself. To me it is just a piece of equipment that allows me perform the tasks that I want.
