Vigor Gaming, a developer of custom gaming rigs and high-end peripherals, is partnering with AMD to offer a series of desktop gaming PCs configured for high-definition gaming with the new AMD GAME! logo. The Force Recon SP will be the first Vigor Gaming system that’s AMD GAME!-branded to insure that customers are buying a system suited for gaming with the right graphics and processor components.


The AMD GAME! initiative was launched to let PC buyers and do-it-yourself gamers know that their system meets a benchmark for playing the latest games in Microsoft Windows Vista. A Vigor Gaming system stamped with the AMD GAME! logo will feature everything the buyer needs, including a clear set-up process, to be able to play new and demanding games right out of the box. Vigor and AMD will revise product requirements and specifications at least every six months so that consumers will always keep pace with technology.

“AMD GAME! is the equivalent of a PC seal of approval to assure consumers their system is branded for gaming performance. Simple and clearly identifiable ways to ensure levels of performance is a great way to meet customer expectations and educate them on the right choices for their gaming experience,” said Steven Chien, Director of Sales at Vigor Gaming.

Two categories of desktop configurations, aimed at different types of gamers, will be offered by Vigor Gaming with many self-build options for the Force Recon SP that go beyond the minimum AMD GAME! bar.

The basic Force Recon SP configuration is intended for mainstream gamers playing at a resolution of 1,280x1,024, and will require at least 2GB of DDR2 RAM, an AMD Athlon X2 5600+ processor, dual ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics cards, and the AMD 770 chipset or nVidia nForce 500 series chipset. A Force Recon SP built to these specs would have a MSRP of around $1,845.

For more serious gamers Vigor will offer the Force Recon SP under the AMD GAME! Ultra configuration, which requires a 2GB of DDR2 RAM, Phenom X4 9650 processor (Vigor offers a Phenom 9850 CPU in this configuration), ATI Radeon HD 3870 graphics, and an AMD 770 chipset. This system, designed for optimal performance at 1,600x1,200 resolution would list for $2,733.

The Force Recon SP comes loaded with Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit Home Basic Edition with original DVD. Vigor offers a number of options such as custom painting for any system as well as free overclocking. Vigor Gaming desktop PCs are all backed by a three year limited parts and labor warranty. All models are available direct from Vigor Gaming at www.vigorgaming.com.

Why are they using non-widescreen resolutions when most new computers com with widescreen monitors?

For $2733 I would want a 3870x2! But every time I see one of these boutique custom jobs I realize how overpriced they are.

B/c noobs that would be ignorant enough to buy them don't know widescreen, but probably recognize standard rezs? You got me.

Vigor Gaming is relatively new but has established themselves to be one of the best boutique builders out there. they are in the business to make money and make folks happy, cannot fault them for that. There are so many folks who want the best, but will asbolutely not touch anything pc related and build it themselves. So they have a right to charge for that service. Sorry for the rant, I just get tired of folks belly aching about this. Im glad to see AMDs Game Design getting out there.

I agree with you WarEagleAU. Theres obviously either people too busy to build their own rig, or people that never used lego as kids. If people get ripped off knowingly, theres absolutely no issue at all.

This should give Alienware a run for their money, especially as Vigor Gaming and AMD evolve in time. Wouldnt be surprised if by the end of the year they have a system with a pair of 4870x2's.

Boutique companies are good, they exist for the same reason that sports car companies exist - to supply a demand for beautifully engineered machines. Personally if I lived in the US I wouldn't touch Vigor because their machines are bland and uninteresting; OverdrivePC, Maingear and Digital Storm are all far more interesting.
