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.
