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.

Lol we don't have a superior attitude, we just think it is stupid. You could probably build your own PC very easily, most everything in there is based off 2 of the most basic principals you learned before 1st grade, shape and color. Most everything inside your rig is color coded and connectors will only fit where they should be. As long as you look up on a website what you need for a functioning machine you should be ok, 3 biggest factors are CPU socket, Ram (DDR# and pins), and making sure you have enough amperage on your rails to run your machine (Watts aren't the determining factor as much). As long as you get those 3 things down pretty much everything else now is compatible. Charging this much of a permium though for people that don't know is stupid. I'm in the computer industry (computer and wiring infrustructure tech) and if anyone wants me to build 1 for them i will discuss what they want it for and spec things accordingly, have them pay for it, and ill only charge like 20-40 to build it since it does take a little time. I let all of them know about the warranties and ask if they want to pay for the company warranty for a company to build them a computer, but for the price i always hear no. Also, this cooling is far from anything great or pushing boundaries. a few years ago i found a computer called "Nuclear Winter" (http://www.biohazard-computers.com/ it is a bit dated though) and it used a phase change cooling system, sure it weighed about 50summod lbs before components were added but when you are getting -20c at 4.5 most hardcore OCers won't mind. Also, the liquid submersion cooled PC (the Reactor & Dominator) (http://www.hardcorecomputer.com/index.html) is revolitionary. Just do a little research.
