Another week, another pair of IBuyPower
gaming desktops to tempt your ever-stressed credit limit. This time, we've got the Gamer Fire 640 and Gamer Paladin F830, both of which check in under the $2000 ceiling and aim for the mid- to high-end gamer. Also, these each are outfitted with NVIDIA's GeForce 3D Vision
and come bundled with a Samsung 22" 120Hz monitor, giving you the perfect excuse to upgrade if you've been interested in immersing yourself in the third dimension.
The main difference between the two systems is the platforms: the Gamer Fire 640 is AMD Socket AM3-based, while the Core i7-based Gamer Paladin F830 hums along on Intel's finest. Hailed as "complete stereoscopic 3D gaming solutions," these machines also come with a 1600 DPI mouse and multimedia keyboard. Each rig is customizable to suit your every need, but the base configurations -- priced at $1349 for the Gamer Fire 640 and $1999 for the Gamer Paladin F830 -- are detailed below. iBUYPOWER Launches Two Systems Featuring NVIDIA GeForce 3D VisionThe Gamer Fire 640 and Gamer Paladin F830 provide immersive gameplay with cutting edge 3D graphics technology
