AMD shook up the processor market this morning with the introduction of the reasonably priced Phenom II X6 1090T, and now CyberPower is jumping onboard in order to offer new systems with this very chip inside. Starting today, CyberPower will begin to sell machines with AMD's new Phenom II X6 and AMD 890 chipset, which should make bargain gamers particularly happy.



The Gamer Dragon CrossFire Ultimate and Gamer Ultra CrossFireX Pro are both seeing the new CPU option, and unlike most of those other big-time gaming PCs, these start at just $699. Yes, a six-core gaming desktop for under $700! The Phenom II X6 gaming system series can be easily factory overclocked by CyberPower and customized with a number of hard drive and/or SSD, optical drive, memory, and other peripheral components options at the company website. Each rig comes loaded with Windows 7 (64-bit) and have a 3-year warranty.

Seeing the1055T 6-Core for $150, can't beat that value.

While I'm not convinced this chip belongs in a gaming rig, it's a step in the right direction for AMD.

I have already received sale emails from 3 places on both the black and the blue edition of these 6 core processors. I find it both amazing as well as appealing that AMD can drop this CPU at this price line compared to Intel's 1000 dollar 6 core. One third of that price is an awesome deal for many I would say, and that is there high end CPU, the secondary is a quarter of the price for 6 seemingly very energy efficient cores.

That's a beautiful case. I think these things are going to sell *very* well at that price range.

This is tempting but what we need is more games to utilize more cores, then we have something.

But for a straight up price performance AMD is the way to go!!!

Good Lord, with all the money people save on this Processor they can buy a bag full of SSD's with money to spare. Keep it up AMD.

Everyone besides my own comment makes some exceptional points here. Not to say my initial statement is irrelevant as well, but the points everyone else makes are very, very valid.

I am also wondering if this may very well be the next contest PC as CyberPower has been the provider of said systems as has Ibuypower (which is represented in a system with the same case as 3vi1's he just won) in a new AMD 6 core beauty.

This case specifically though is quite a stunner!

Wow... $700 starting price?  That's very tempting for me to get even though I hope to build my own system.  I'll have to play around with some builds with the new 6-core processor on newegg.  Pleeeeeease Intel, drop your prices :D

I'm considering getting a system powered by one of the new AMD processors. Aside from the Athlon x2 4200+ build I had (which was acquired by trading a laptop with a friend), this would be the first AMD system I've purchased/built outright.

Great prices too!

It seems most of you haven't done your homework yet. If you would have actually spent the time reading reviews on this, you would have realized, that even the X6 1090T does NOT perform as well as even the Core i5-750 Processor. (4 cores @ 2.66ghz.) in most games.

~http://tinyurl.com/2dvkl72~ even the i5-670 beats it in a few games, and thats a dualcore! This chip may seem cheap, but its a ripoff. Save money and get better performance with an intel. These chips are made of crap.

I actually knew that (and somewhat expected that with it being cheaper) but it's still 2 more cores :P  (and yes, not all software uses more than one core)

$699 will not get you a good gaming computer. you need to spend at least double that if you want to compete with todays games.

Most people out there are looking for a computer that can run games with decent settings; not the ones that run at the highest possible settings.

With that being said, CyberPower's machines fit that niche and I hope they do well in that market.
