Two systems for $999 and $1,439

System builder iBuyPower has announced two new systems based on AMD's Dragon platform, the Gamer HAF 91B and Gamer Fire. Both systems are based on AMD's 790GX motherboard and AMD Phenom II X4 CPU. The good thing is that the cheaper one sells for US $999 while the expensive Gamer Fire one is priced at US $1,439.

The first one, Gamer HAF 91B, features a 2.8GHz Phenom II X4 920 CPU, 4GB of memory and a Radeon HD 4850 graphics card with 512MB of GDDR3 memory. It's a decent configuration for a decent price and we must give iBuyPower some credit for that. The Gamer HAF 91B also comes packed with a 500GB hard drive and a 550W power supply. As the name suggests, this one is packed in CoolerMaster's HAF 932 case.

The second one, dubbed Gamer Fire, features a 3.0GHz Phenom II X4 940 CPU, the same 4GB of memory, but it comes with a 2GB Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics card, a 750GB hard drive and an 800W PSU. The entire setup is packed in a NZXT Guardian 921 case. So basically, you get a better CPU, a much better graphics card, bigger hard drive and a juicier PSU for US $440 more. We must note that this one also features a CPU liquid cooling system which is a really nice touch.

You can find more info and order these systems at iBuyPower's web site here.
