What’s better than a custom PC tricked-out with killer components and sweet lighting? A custom PC with the aforementioned goodies as well as the ability to share your stellar gaming performance with integrated gaming and live HD broadcasting.

CyberpowerPC’s new Pro Gamer FTW custom rigs have AVerMedia Live Gamer HD on board, and the technology records 1080p HD (60fps) video right to the Pro Gamer system. Users can easily add commentary and stream the content to an online audience.

That’s not to overshadow the Pro Gamer FTW’s other impressive specs, though; these machines run on Intel X79, Intel Z77, or AMD Bulldozer processors; NVIDIA GTX (Kepler) or AMD (Tahiti) graphics; 1600MHz G.Skill Ripjaw X RAM; Western Digital Caviar HDDs; and options including hydro liquid cooling, SSDs, Blu-ray drives, and more.

There are six base models to choose from, and prices start at $1,085, which includes a 3-year warranty.

Why are all these manufacturers skimping on the RAM? I'm seeing companies come out with factory overclocked CPU's to speeds like 4.7Ghz on the 3770k which is NOTHING to be sniffed at. But then they throw in a $100 16GB kit and are done with it.

Where's the 2400, 2133, or even 1866 speeds? If I bought a custom prebuilt system I'd like better RAM options.

.. I am extremely picky, though. (:

Under what circumstances would you ever use more than 16gb of RAM? :D

I wasn't talking about capacity, I was talking about speeds.

But I could EASILY fill 16GB of RAM during Photoshop sessions.

most people don't use so much ram and most gamers don't use much either seeing as game developers try and keep hardware requirements low.

Lower hardware requirements equal wider gamer base and all that.

This is the PC equivalent of a "souped up" Honda Civic with an exhaust system that can be heard a mile away while its idling at the lights. Great for showing off but cannot hold its own against a good gaming machine.

Cool idea to record video capture but I wouldn't pay the extra $$ for it, not to mention in all honesty I think it looks ugly :P Gyess im more of a simple case kind of person.
