Launching just in time for the holiday season is an affordable gaming system powered by AMD's FX 4100 processor clocked at 3.6GHz and available exclusively at Tiger Direct. It's called the Gamer Power 595D3 and it's a $700 rig with respectable specs that's ready for action right out of the box, iBuyPower says.

"Were always excited to partner with Tiger Direct and build systems for their knowledgeable customer base," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBuyPower. "The Gamer Power 595D3 meets the high performance and value expectations they have come to expect and demand."


In addition to the FX 4100 processor, the 595D3 sports an NXZT Source 210 mid-tower case, 8GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB hard drive, AMD Radeon HD 6770 graphics card, DVD burner, 600W power supply, half a dozen USB 2.0 ports (two up front and four on the back), and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Not a barn burner, obviously, but fairly priced. We spec'd a similar system (with mouse and keyboard) online and it came out to right around $670 before shipping.

Decent system. Aknudon, i have a asrock board right now and it hasnt done me wrong. Look up benchmarks and reviews on the new am3+ boards to see which ones are good.

For 700 that is a very respectable price. I would imagine that the extra $30 might be for Tigerdirect. But all in all not a bad system. Ibuypower also does a nice job on all the the machines they make.

This actually makes good sense as Tiger already sells stuff I got my mom a Dell refurb off of there several years back and while it is about due for a replacement it worked great for 3 years now!

I agree, not a bad price point. Maybe upgrade to an AMD Radeon HD 6850 graphics card or higher, then you'll have a pretty good gaming machine.

Never stop learning... until you're dead.

Does it have USB 3.0? If not, that would be a deal breaker. Shame too, because aside from the exclusion of that, it's a good value. I especially appreciate that the case isn't obnoxious looking, which is rare for this price range.

However, Black Friday weekend was really the time to buy a cheap, prebuilt system.

You could've gotten this for $570

Or this for $459

Meh...they probably cheaped out on the PSU, and given how most games are GPU-limited I'd have liked a more potent card in there to help out the lackluster FX cpu. It shouldn't be hard to toss in a 6850 instead, with the new AMD cards coming out in just a few weeks. Heck the same Tiger Direct (at least where I live) now have GTX550 Ti going for $99.,
