iBUYPOWER Brings Core i7-980X Extreme Edition To Paladin Gaming Desktops

iBUYPOWER has never been one to get lapped by the other hardcore gaming PC makers, and following up on Core i7-980X related announcements from all of those other guys, this company has stepped it up by introducing not one, but four new overclock-ready Paladin systems. Better still, all four feature new Intel six-core processors, and all four can be overclocked to best performance of the 3.33GHz stock configuration.

As you might expect, the company is offering these Core i7 rigs with the latest ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards, and you can stuff upwards of 12GB of DDR3 RAM in there too. There's 1TB of hard drive space, Blu-ray drives to go around and even optional SSD boot drives if you have extra cash to spare. The group also features Windows 7 Ultimate, and the nicest rig promises up to 30% more power than a standard i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU. The new Paladin rigs start at $2159 and be configured to fit your needs (or wishes) right now.
