We’ve featured a number of gaming PCs here at TechChee.com but almost all of them come in expensive price tags with base prices starting at $1,800 USD. Such a price tag definitely sounds too expensive for most student gamers. However, there is now a new gaming PC, the iBuyPower’s Gamer Power BTS11, which is specially designed for student gamers and offers both value and performance under $1,000 USD.
The iBuyPower Gamer Power BTS11 does not lack any high-performance components that are found on powerful gaming PCs. The BTS11 comes with a base configuration that’s based on an Intel Core i5 2,500K processor and you’re able to upgrade up to an Intel Core i7 2,600 processor by adding another $110 USD.
Other than the mentioned processor, the base configuration of the BTS11 also offers a white NZXT Phantom full tower PC case, a liquid cooled CPU system, 8GB DDR3-1333 memory module with free upgrade to DDR3-1600 Corsair, an nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB video card, 720GB 7,200RPM 6Gbps HDD, a Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3 mainboard, a 24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive, an on-board 3D Premium Surround Sound, and a Gigabit LAN card.
Of course, you have various choices to upgrade by paying more (or downgrade by paying less) for all the mentioned components of this gaming PC on the iBuyPower website. If you just go for the basic configuration it costs you only $999 USD.
