It's only been a few days since NZXT's Vulcan stylish, compact case reached reviewers' hands (see a review here), and already iBuyPower is offering a new PC built around the chassis.

While the Vulcan would be classified as a micro-ATX case, it has enough room to fit a couple of graphics cards and a 1,200-watt ATX power supply, and offers four 3.5-inch and two 5.25-inch drive bays. The built-in handle helps you carry it to LAN parties.

No surprise, then, that the iBuyPower system is called LAN Warrior II. It starts from $999, which gets you a powerful processor (an Intel Core i7-930) but some specs that are humbler (Nvidia GeForce 210 graphics card and just 3GB of DDR3 RAM. Of course, you can fill it to the hilt—say, 24GB of RAM and dual ATI Radeon HD 5970 cards in CrossFireX mode—for much, much, much more.

Such a setup would fire up the ol' Vulcan, so you'd appreciate the case's cutouts for external liquid-cooling options. iBuyPower says a customized solution will be available "soon."
