Next Gen AMD Gaming PC
With all the new gaming PC gear on the market its totally time for a new PALADIN gaming computer to enter the fray.
Same Same, But Different
We still wanted to keep the water cooling, CPU, and SSD from our original PALIDIN gaming pc. However based on the common customisations our customers have requested to their gaming PCs… We figured we would drop the RAM back down to 16GB (from 32GB) and also ditch the WiFi.
New Badass Case
The PALADIN v2 case is also a new choice for us. The fantastic Corsair C70, with its military look and feel, and huge side window will be used to house all your gaming PC goodness.
When looking at possible audio solutions to replace the original PALADINs Thunderbolt audio card. Its hard to go past the awesome looking FATAL1TY audio series for gaming PCs. To top it all off the front mounted audio options really kick off the military look and feel of the Vengeance Case.
What About the Graphics?
Ultimately the 7970 we were using in the original PALADIN computer was complete overkill for most gamers. Even new games like Max Payne 3 and all the Battlefield 3 DLC didn’t even make the 7970 spin up its fans.
So we have gone for the more realistically priced XFX 7950 GHOST. It’s a very powerful card but doesn’t come at the price premium of its bigger brother, and also consumes less power… meaning you can save on your gaming PCs PSU as well.
No need to worry about future gaming titles either. As a publisher / developer I want to ensure the biggest audience for my new game. You’ll find that most future titles will be destroyed by the XFX 7950 GHOST.
So obviously this all translates into a new price for our premium gaming pc. PCG4M3R has also changed a bit since we last spec’d the original PALADIN. We have our new double build process and new supplier agreements. All of which mean a better deal for the Aussie PC gamer.
