AMD FX-Series CPUs Arrive in iBuyPower's Gaming Desktops

Just a day has passed since AMD introduced its FX-Series processors and PC vendors have already started to use these chips inside their gaming systems, the latest of which being iBuyPower who just announced the introduction of three new systems built around six- and eight-core Bulldozer CPUs.

The most powerful of the systems announced today is the Gamer Mage D355 that is built around an AMD FX-8150 processor, paired with 8GB of system memory and with an AMD Radeon 6950 2GB graphics card.

All of these are packed together in an NZXT Guardian 921 gaming case with a 40GB SSD, a 2TB hard drive, a LG Blu-Ray reader/DVD Burner drive and an 800W power supply. The system retails for $1,219 (913 Euros).  

The next system introduced by iBuyPower, the Gamer Mage D295, is also built around an eight-core AMD FX processors, this time the FX-8120, packed with 8GB of DDR3 memory and a Radeon HD 6870 graphics card.

In addition of going with a slower processor, iBuyPower also removed the SSD used in the D355 and went with a PSU of 700W, but otherwise the rest of the specs are similar.

Finally, the last desktop system announced by iBuyPower is the Gamer Mage D415 which sports a liquid cooled AMD FX-6100 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card, a 700W power supply, a 1TB hard drive, all loaded into NZXT Source 210 gaming case.

Pricing for the Gamer Mage D295 and the Gamer Mage D415 is set at $989 and $759 (740 and 568 Euros) respectively, AND customers can also choose to customize the systems according to their wishes.

All the desktops announced today were rated by iBuyPower's Optimal Game Settings program which has found these to work with image quality set on high in games like CoD Black Ops and Starcraft II, “Ultra” settings on Battlefield 2 and Crysis 2, and “Max” in several titles like Modern Warfare II.
