Business users typically tote a briefcase filled with all the necessary gear, things like pads of paper, a tablet, documents, TPS reports, pencils, calendars, and whatever else. What if you fancy yourself a professional or diehard gamer who likes to game on the go? Well, you could invest in a notebook, or you could check out CyberPowerPC's Fang Battle Box, a mobile gaming system that acts as a briefcase for your hardware.
With less than a week to go before the calendar flips to 2012, CyberPowerPC, who is "taking no prisoners to close out the year" by refreshing its Fang desktop gaming PC series. Now in its third generation, the Fang III series consists of the Rattler, Viper, Cobra, and top-of-the-line Black Mamba, each one re-armed with Intel's second generation Core i processors and fully customizable.
You'll have a tough time finding a Fermi graphics card available for purchase until early April, but in the meantime, you can already configure a CyberPower PC with one of Nvidia's recently announced next-gen videocards, the boutique system vendor announced.
"CyberPower's top-of-the line Black Pearl, Black Mamba Fang Series, and Gamer Xtreme 3D desktop gaming rigs will all feature Nvidia's Fermi cards," CyberPower said. "CyberPower's entire Gamer Xtreme line will also have options for customers who want to upgrade to Nvidia Fermi architecture cards. When combined with Intel's latest six-core CPUs, CyberPower customers can be assured their custom gaming PC will pump out geometric realism, while offering increased image quality, and extreme performance."
Investing in the latest and greatest Intel chip isn't a requirement. CyberPower's Xtreme series represents a more budget friendly starting point, and for a little over $1,500, you can configure a rig with an Intel Core i7 930 processor, Asetek self-contained liquid cooler, Asus P6T SE motherboard, 6GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 videocard, a 1TB hard drive, dual optical drives, 800W PSU, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
Boutique system builder CyberPower today announced it has completely redesigned its Black Mamba custom gaming machine, which the company describes as "the cornerstone of the Fang Series."
CyberPower's not kidding about the overhaul. Everything about the Black Mamba has been replaced or rejiggered, including the chassis, which now consists of Corsair's Obsidian 800D enclosure.
On the inside, the Black Mamba now comes equipped with the new Xtreme Hydro custom cooling kit, Intel's still flagship Core i7 975 processor, Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P motherboard with "the latest special BIOS that allows for improved overclocking and support for...Gulftown that will be released" next year, a pair of Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards, two 64GB Kingston SSDs in a RAID 0 array, and plenty of other goodies.
The redesigned Black Mamba doesn't come cheap, with the base MSRP set at $3,800. Yikes, someone pass the anti-venom.
