BFG Begins Taking Orders On Their New, Expensive Gaming Rigs

Illustration for article titled BFG Begins Taking Orders On Their New, Expensive Gaming Rigs

Need a state of the art gaming PC? Got $3,000 to $8,000? No? Then you probably don't want to head over to, where the BFG's new Phobos systems have just gone on sale.


Most people know BFG for their graphics cards, but they're looking to make a splash in the high-end gaming / home theater PC industry now with their Phobos line, which garnered rave reviews at their debut at CES earlier this month. The system comes in three starting price points - $3,000, $5,000, and $8,000 - each with what I assume is thousands of dollars worth of bells and whistles attached. Each features water cooling of some sort, with the higher end featuring quad-SLI GeForce GTX 295 1.79GB cards, a dedicated 1GB card for PhysX, and 6GB of memory - and that still leaves room for another $3,000 worth of upgrades.

To put that in layman's terms,'ll run World of Warcraft.

They're really drool-worthy systems, though the BFG Technologies brand and I have never really been friends, after that horrible summer when I returned my 6800 GT video card four times before they found a working one. They've got one hell of a warranty though (concierge service?), so if you have the means you might considering heading over to and giving them a gander.
