Maingear Gets Busy Building Machines with New AMD Radeon HD 7950 Graphics Cards

The PC building gurus at Maingear wasted no time in jumping on the official release of AMD's new Radeon HD 7950 graphics cards (see our official review here), which are now offered on Maingear's line of desktop PCs. And if you really want to get wild, you can combine the new offering with Maingear's EPIC 180 liquid cooling solution and EPIC Audio Engine for what the company claims is a one of a kind gaming experience.

"High performance PC users looking for a no-compromise solution need to look no further than a Maingear system equipped with our custom EPIC solutions and an AMD Radeon HD 7900 series graphics card," said Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of Maingear.

We'll forgive Maingear for the generic quote since these guys are anything but (check out our factory tour of Maingear here). There's also nothing generic about the new 7950 part, which is built on the same 28nm manufacturing process as the 7970 and uses the same "Tahiti" GPU architecture. Other than being a little on the pricey side, we were generally impressed with the 7950.

Maingear's offering the 7950 option on its Shift and F131 desktops, which start at $1,998 and $1,326, respectively, or $2,313 and $1,833 if upgrading the stock GPU to a 7950.
