Updates for Several of Our Custom VSPC Systems

With the general availability of the revised (B3) Sandy Bridge motherboards we’re seeing at many retailers now, we thought it would be a great time to update our configurations for our offered second-gen Intel Core based builds. Not only are the latest systems getting spec bumps (and price cuts in some cases), but our AMD and more value oriented systems are also getting the same treatment as well. We’ll give you a quick run-through of what main changes took place for a majority of our builds below, starting with our flagship Versus series:

  • Versus series (New for 2011) – Memory (RAM) increase from 8GB (2 x 4GB) to 16GB (4 x 4GB), same price
  • Vantage series – Same amount of RAM but fewer DIMMs (2 x 4GB now compared to 4 x 2GB before), reduced price of $1,049 ($326 in savings)
  • Valor series – Now with quad-core CPU, better graphics, and at a lower price of $649 ($50 in savings)

These are the more noticeable and significant changes we made to our line-up, but there has been minor alterations we made to our other offerings as well. This includes using a standard graphics card now for our Velocity II series rather than one with a custom cooler as we did before (due to the lack of availability). The special offer of upgrading to an unlocked quad-core processor and a much better GPU is still in effect, which is a very good deal for only $99. We’re also thinking of equipping it with 8GB of RAM as a standard option, but that has yet to be decided. We also put up our original Velocity series configuration for reference, but note that the status for it is EOL (end-of-life) and will not be available for obvious reasons (discontinued parts, shortages, etc.).

At this point we’ve lost track of how many times we said it, but none of these VSPC systems are fixed configurations and can be customized to suit anyone. This includes a choice of in particular graphics card (e.g. AMD or NVIDIA) or want to lower the price of a base build (e.g. don’t need the extra storage hard drive). The choice is yours.
