Attack of the Fermi desktops: More gaming PC builders announce systems with new Nvidia graphics cards
Seemingly minutes after I posted about CyberPower announcing gaming computers with the brand-new Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480 DirectX 11 cardspart of the so-called Fermi platforma slew of other system builders announced their own Fermi desktops. Though these are pretty much existing lines that just have the new cards as upgrade options, in sum they represent a range of prices.
At that "low" end, you can get a Falcon Northwest Talon with a GTX 470 for as little as $1,851.77, a Maingear Shift with a GTX 470 for $2,099 or a Velocity Micro Edge Z55 with a GTX 470 for $2,114. You can tack on another couple hundred dollars to move up to the GTX 480. With deeper pockets comes the opportunity to added two or even three of the new boards in an SLI configuration. You can still stay under $3,000 with a Shift with two GTX 470s ($2,519) or a Falcon NW Mach V with a pair of GTX 470s ($2,900.71).
