Vigor Gaming Delivers AMD GAME! -Branded Force Recon SP Desktop Gaming Rig

Vigor Gaming announced a series of desktop PCs with the new AMD GAME! logo. The Force Recon SP is the first AMD GAME!-branded system, which insures that customers get a system configured for high-def gaming out of the box.

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA (May 29, 2008) - 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 that 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.
