iBuypower cranks gamer desktops with AMD Radeon 6800 graphics

PC gamers know you can never have enough graphics processing—or enough pixels—and boutique PC maker iBuypower is catering to their needs with three new systems powered by AMD Radeon 6800-series graphics: the Gamer Mage D295, Gamer Mage D355, and Gamer Paladin F820 desktop systems. All three systems sport tower cases (with gamer bling) with expandability and customization options so gamers can get exactly the rig they want—including blistering DirectX11 compatibility, 3D graphics, and support for up to six monitors.

“We take pride in always being able to offer our customers the latest in graphics technology,” said iBuypower VP Darren Su, in a statement. “That’s why we are excited to be among the first to offer the gamer-friendly AMD Radeon 6000 series graphics cards.”

The Gamer Mage D295 offers a liquid-cooled AMD Athlon II X4 quad-core CPU, a base 4 GB of RAM, and the AMD Radeon 6850 graphics card with 1 GB of dedicated video memory. The units also sport a 700W power supply, an Blu-ray reader/DVD combo driver, and 1 TB of storage. The Gamer Mage D355 jumps up to an AMD Phenom II X6 six-core CPU, a base 8 GB of RAM, and the AMD Radeon 6870 graphics card, along with an 800 watt power supply, a 64 GB SSD boot drive, 1 TB of hard drive storage, and the PSI CyborgX gaming case. Folks preferring an Intel CPU can opt for the Gamer Paladin F820 features an Intel Core i7 950 processor, a base 6 GB of RAM, the AMD Radeon 6870 graphics card, a 700 watt power supply, 1 TB of storage, and the NZXT Guardian 921 R case.

The Mage D295 has a starting starting price of $899, while the Mage D355 jumps up to a starting price fo $1,239 and the Paladin F820 starts at $1,369. Of course, all those prices jump significantly once customers start adding storage, memory, peripherals, more RAM, more video cards, and…more everything. But that’s what boutique gaming is all about. The systems should be available in early November.
