Pre-Yule shopping

IT TOOK us a while to find a Quad FX on any system builder sites as the usual suspects such as Alienware and VoodooPC still haven't announced theirs.

Luckily some other American BTO (Build to Order) manufacturers have them and some cool machines are starting from $2999 for this crazy system.

Vigor Gaming calls its system Quadfather and the cheapest one with two FX70s at two times 2.6GHz costs $2999 including a free shipping and has 4x512MB Corsair memory, two 250GB drives in RAID 0, Geforce 8800 GTX and 1100 W Tagan PSU. The company even offers a free Vista business upgrade.

We had some fun and tried to make an ultimate gaming system with 4GB Corsair memory and two FX74 and two Geforce 8800 GTX and we ended up at close to six thousand dollars. That is a lot of money but it cannot get much faster than that.

You can order one from Vigorgaming here, from Ibuypower here, from CyberpowerPC here or from Maingear here.

We checked even if you order a machine now you will still get it this year but you might be just late for Yule. µ
