BFG Technologies Unveils Phobos - The Ultimate Gaming System

BFG Technologies, known as a leading supplier of premium power supplies and 3D graphics cards, is excited to announce its first line of complete gaming and multimedia PCs, called Phobos. These sleek hand-built, high performance machines were designed with the "Graduated Gamer" in mind. This audience is looking for all the performance associated with a high-end gaming system, but none of the hassle related to building and servicing such a system. As a result, Phobos is sold with complementary Concierge Service which includes expert in-home installation and a six month follow up maintenance visit.


"Phobos was designed for gamers and media enthusiasts who demand top of the line performance, but may not have the time, desire, or expertise to build or maintain a high end system," said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. "Our Concierge Service ensures our systems meet those high expectations-delivering Unbelievable Performance without monopolizing our customers' time."

Phobos is designed with the highest-end components available, featuring the Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition 3.2GHz Processor, two upcoming BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Graphics Cards, and CoolIt Contained Liquid Cooling Solutions to keep both the GPUs & CPU cool during the fiercest of gaming battles. BFG Tech also outfitted Phobos to serve as a home theater command center by choosing Windows Vista Ultimate with Media Center, including four hard drive bays, offering RF remote and TV tuner with DVR functionality, a front slot-loading Blu-ray Disc drive, the option for 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound audio cards, and an integrated iPod/iPhone syncing dock.

Phobos is as impressive externally as it is internally, offering Refined Aesthetics and an innovative design. Its sleek black gloss finish and hidden cable management makes Phobos look at home in the living room, next to a flat panel TV and high end audio components. BFG Tech's ground breaking touch panel LCD with performance control further sets Phobos apart from every other system in its class. The panel provides users with a System Status Overview-a real time snapshot of the processor, memory, network, and storage data. Phobos owners can also make real-time performance adjustments based on desired use (Auto/Quiet/Max), monitor the capacity and health of internal storage devices, display and control audio and video files, and more.

• Phobos Performance (from $3,000) I can build a KILLER Gaming/OCing rig and put some in my pocket.:D
• Phobos Advanced (from $5,000) OMG touchscreen what? I wouldn't need to touch it I would nut myself just looking at it. :roll:
• Phobos Elite (from $8,000) Not even considering it I would pay off some bills and still build a damn nice gaming / ocing rig :pimp:

Of course others are more gifted in the pocketbook and may order 5 Phobos Elite for their own personal game room in their 3 million dollar home. :respect:

My dad and brother do work in custom homes it was just a number (3 mil) That is average for the guy spending 70 to 100 thousand on just flat panels sound systems and bs in his home from what they have seen. I figured if he likes Gaming PCs and is spending 8 grand on 1 4 more he wouldn't blink an eye. :roll:

Hardware shmardware

Killer hardware is always offered in every size and shape and that's all you hear about. I want to see the Co. that will come to a guys house or on the phone or even online and will spend time with the software & programs customization of the desktop, driver installs and updates how to and what not to do. And wouldn't it be awsome if a Co. sent a guy to help you learn how to understand and how adjust a stable overclock. Show you how and explain all these mind boggling bios settings you see on like um Asus "extreme tweaker" section. You know for guys that want that kind of thing. I know I wish I could understand all the bios settings in the overclock section. I know a enough but not as much as I would like. Sometimes searching the net is a pain and it doesn't always answer all your questions.

This has got to be the stupidest pre build computer ever (and their website is worse!). That thing has parts for 2 computers if you could just split the PSU up (not mobo+cpu of course).

Even if I won lottery I wouldn't buy that. If I won it as a competition price, I'd strip the extra stuff out of it and make two awesome systems. Keep the weaker own build my self and sell that nasty thing :)

It's not actually that attractive. The first photo makes it look really dated.
