Cyberpower Has a Battlefield 4 Custom Rig Too

By - Source: CyberPower Press Release | B 20 comments

This Battlefield 4 PC gaming rig is all about the new Radeon R9 290x.

CyberPower said on Thursday that customers can now pre-purchase the "gaming bundle of the year", the Zeus Evo Lightning Battlefield 4 Edition gaming PC. This meaty rig has a starting price of $2169, packing AMD's new Radeon R9 290X and AMD processors like the FX-8350, 9370, or 9590. The PC also uses a black Corsair Obsidian Series 750D full tower case that appears to have a Battlefield 4 logo/soldier engraving on the solid, non-windowed side.

According to the base specs, this Battlefield 4 Edition PC packs a CrossFire-capable Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ motherboard supporting an AMD FX-8350 eight-core CPU clocked at 4 GHz, an AMD Radeon R9 290X PCIe 3.0 video card with 4 GB of VRAM, and 16 GB of DDR3-1600 dual channel memory (8 GB x 2). All of this is cooled by a CyberPower Xtreme Hydro 240MM liquid cooling kit with the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240.

Also crammed into this themed desktop is ADATA's Premier Pro SP900 128 GB SSD with read speeds up to 550 MB/s and write speeds up to 520 MB/s via a SATA 3 connection, and a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive connected to another SATA 3 port. There's also a 12x Blu-ray / DVD-RW combo optical drive from LG capable of 3D playback, on-board Gigabit Ethernet, on-board high-definition 7.1 audio, and an 850 watt Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC power supply.

The bundle also comes with the AZZA multimedia USB gaming keyboard, the AZZA optical 1600dpi gaming mouse with a weight adjustable cartridge, and a 64-bit edition of Windows 8. Naturally customers can throw in additional gaming gear through the customization process including a gaming mouse mat, headphones, the Razer Hydra or Logitech G13 gameboard, a wireless network card and more.

"New CyberpowerPC systems based on the new R series are also engineered for Ultra Resolution Gaming at 4K resolutions and beyond," reads the company's press release. "UltraHD/4K gaming has arrived and requires 4X the processing power of 1080p gaming. Loaded with up to 4 GB memory, the AMD Radeon R9 Series GPUs are the graphics cards of choice for this new era in gaming."

Of course, this is just the base configuration. PC gamers can option for the meatier AMD FX-9370 or FX-9590 CPUs, choose from a wide range of motherboards that are CrossFire and Nvidia SLI ready, add up to 32 GB of DDR3-1866 dual channel memory, and choose from a huge number of hard drive and SSD options. The customization fun starts here.

    I don't know...

    Design choices/ideas like this are a bit cheesy, a cliche solider running on the side of the case, put some creativity into it?

    Be way cooler to have an image of a soldier(that looks directly like from in game) stabbing a guy and taking his dog tags or a tank firing a shell and you see some kind of orange-ish Battlefield blast or maybe a loaded transport chopper flying by with the gunners shooting?

    Well, its hard to see manofacturers supporting AMD hardware since one "major" pc manofacturer drop them out because of "Overheating and driver Issues".

    I wanted to buy a GTX 760 next month, but after such bad marketing moves from Nvidia i think i will go HD 7950 + 280x style.

    Don't get me wrong, i love competition and such, but watching Nvidia paying out just to be exclusive and above all a company like Origin doing such a shitty move angers me.

    A company that does that kind of things (dropping a manofacturer just to have exclusivity with another) IMVHPO should go bankrupcy ASAP.

    I don't really see thepoint of these rigs, seeing that BF4 isn't exactly Crysis 3 in terms of being demanding.

    the point is to take advantage of the momentum generated by the release of BF4 and allow BF4 fans to acquire a powerful gaming pc, with great gpu, cooling system, cpu bundled with a BF4 license and a Battlefield 4 "art" on it's case. You can choose lots of configurations for the system on the link provided in the article, however doen't seem to be possible to customize the art.
    do you need more reasons?

    Cyberpower PC makes great PCs. Why? Because you can pick all of the components (exception... HDD brand). It's a great idea and they can often build cheaper than you can build the same thing yourself. If you don't necessarily love tinkering with hardware, but know which hardware you want, it's a great way to go.

    Personally, I wouldn't get the paint job, but if you're a huge fan and want to show it, go for it!

    That paint looks like crap to me. I don't see them selling to many of these cheese ball PC's. Looks like the CD case from BF3. What happens when you still have the PC and Battlefield 5 comes out? Just seems odd to put the release number on it.

    I get the concept and its not a bad PC but the paint job that makes it stand out is just terrible

    If they had something creative like this on the side of the case where it faded to black instead of white and didn't look like a decal then I could see this PC selling a little better.

    Yeh a single 290x won't hang at 4K let alone the current cost of a single 4k display is way out of reach for most users. People are still using those little cheap 23-27 inch 1080p displays. I game at 2560 x 1600 30 inches since 3 yrs now.

    So I guess this PC is only for Battlefield 4? Do I have to buy a "CallOfDuty: Ghosts" PC as well? </sarcasm off>

    Yes. In order to play COD, you would need a separate COD system with the correct corresponding picture on the side. :lol:

    Is it me, or this thing is 500-1000$ overpriced compared to a custom built PC with the same specs? I mean...

    This. I've personnaly never saw a fried Intel chip. On the other hand, I've seen some non-overclocked AMD fried. Plus like someone mentioned on fb, Cyberpower usually is overdoing it on candy cases that's much like Hondas' full of neons way of thinking.

    Back in the day you could fry either Intel or AMD chips. Its just AMD was way more popular with enthusiast back then since the chips were actually faster which is probably why you have seen some fry. They both have throttless in place to prevent them from going up in smoke these days.

    It is nice to see AMD components in such a nice setup. The idea of moving to 4k is mouth watering. It would be good if they had some stats on FPS on these systems.
