Product: iBuyPower Chimera 901 Evaluation/Review
Provided By: iBuyPower

Price: ~$2177 as Configured (Configure Your Own)



Today we are looking at a gaming rig from the people at iBUYPOWER - a company that builds custom gaming desktops and laptops.  The iBUYPOWER company has sent us a series 901 Chimera X58 gaming rig for review.  iBUYPOWER will build you a gaming rig in any configuration that you want.  As you can guess there are a lot of choices.  They ship their desktop in your standard cardboard box, but once you open it you will find something new - the NZXT Phantom chassis box surrounded by high quality foam rubber.  This is a small price to pay to ensure your desktop rig arrives in good condition.

As you can guess the price of a gaming computer will vary, and the review sample that iBUYPOWER sent us is pretty loaded. The Chimera uses a black NZXT Phantom full tower enclosure that they custom painted.  Then they added their own custom look with lots of flames!  This makes it a very sweet looking chassis!  If you have seen our pictures from CES this year, you have already seen it.
