Custom PC maker iBuyPower has announced that it is adding the newly released AMD Radeon HD 6970 and HD 6950 graphics cards to its gaming rigs. The two new systems to be released with the new cards are the Gamer Mage D335 and Gamer Mage D345.
Housed in the NZXT Lexa-S gaming case, iBuyPower is offering the fully customizable systems with the option of an Athlon II or Phenom II processor. The default chip for the Gamer Mage D335 is the Phenox II X4 955 Black Edition Quad-Core, while for the D345 it is the Phenom II X4 945 Black Edition Quad-Core. The D345 has been equipped with 8GB of RAM, exactly double of the 4GB available to the D335; users can of course ramp it up with up to 16GB each.
For storage, the D335 has a 500GB hard drive while the D345 has a 1TB one plus a 30GB SSD. Both systems can accommodate up to four hard drives or SSDs. Graphics processing power for the D335 is in the form of a 1GB HD 6950; the D345 on the other hand carries the more powerful HD 6970. To cool such massive configurations, iBuyPower has equipped both the Mage 335 and Mage 345 with a liquid cooling system.
With so much juice under the hood, the systems are also going to need lot of power to keep running. iBuyPower has made arrangements for this through a power supply unit that can throw out a monstrous 1500W of power. The default power supply though is 700W for the D335 and 800W for the D345. Both systems will come with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
The default configurations of the gaming desktops carry price tags of $1,039 and $1,459 for the Gamer Mage D335 and Gamer Mage D345 respectively.
