NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 and 980 Adopted by Gaming PC Vendors

NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards the other day, based on the Maxwell graphics processing unit architecture. It, thus, stands to reason that gaming PC vendors would be all over them.

We've already seen some computers adopting the cards, or one of them (the GTX 980 in particular). The Syber Vapor Xtreme comes to mind. However, the list of gaming systems that now features a Maxwell graphics card from NVIDIA is far longer than one or two entries. There are systems from Velocity Micro, Origin PC and Maingear available as well, among others. The computers vary in price depending on what kind of hardware you select. It's not just the graphics after all, but the SSD/HDD, RAM, processor, motherboard and accessories that determine it.

Still, the starting price is, on average, of $1,500 – $2,000 / €1,169 – €1,558 (or €1,500 - €2,000, knowing how these things usually go, with exchange rates seldom mattering). Most of the configurations have a single video board as default, but there are some with more than one card in SLI mode. Needless to say, the systems possess high-end, good-looking cases with visual enhancements (embellishments, some may call them) like LED colored lights.
