CyberPowerPC Rearms Gaming LAN Boxes

Paul Lilly

These small factor gaming PCs pack a punch.

Boutique system builder CyberPowerPC opened up its armory and grabbed a handful of new weapons to hand out to its LAN Gaming Series. Gamers can now build a small form factor (SFF) LAN III system based on Intel's flagship X79 platform with 3rd generation Core i5/i7 (Ivy Bridge) processor options, or opt for an AMD 990FX foundation topped with up to an 8-core Vishera CPU, both of which are flanked by the latest AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.

There are four main systems to choose from, including two brand new LAN III Mini PCs. The first is the LAN III Mini-A with a Fractal Design Node 304 mini ITX case. Pricing starts at $439 and includes an AMD A4-5300 APU with Radeon HD 7480D graphics, 4GB of DDR3-1600 memory, ASRock FM2A75M-ITX motherboard, 500GB hard drive (7200 RPM), 600W power supply, and Windows 8.

Next up the totem pole is the LAN III Mini-I with a BitFenix Prodigy mini ITX case. It starts at $705 and features an Intel Core i7 3770K processor, 4GB of DDR3-1600MHz memory, ASRock B75M-ITX motherboard, 500GB HDD, 850W PSU, and Windows 8.

The third system is the LAN III Xtreme. It's built inside the same case as the Mini-I but sports a Core i5 3570K processor, 8GB of DDR3-1600MHz memory, Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 graphics card, Gigabyte Z77 motherboard, 1TB HDD (7200 RPM), 24X DVD burner, 850W PSU, and Windows 8. Pricing starts at $795.

Finally, the top-end LAN III Commander starts at $1,395 and wields an HAF XB case. It also has a Core i7 3820 processor, 8GB of DDR3-1600MHz memory, GeForce GTX 670 graphics card, ASRock X79 motherboard, SanDisk 128GB solid state drive, 1TB HDD, 24X DVD burner, 600W PSU, and Windows 8.

All four systems are upgradeable and available to configure/order now.
