iBUYPOWER Revolt Gaming System Review

The PC gaming industry is changing.  NVIDIA’s Project Shield and the upcoming Steambox and Steam’s Big Picture Mode are indications that PC gamers want to move into the living room.  At CES we saw many different compact gaming systems from the likes of Alienware, Digital Storm and iBUYPOWER.  Today we are getting our hands on one.  iBUYPOWER’s Revolt is the newest compact gaming system in which iBUYPOWER is using their own custom designed compact case, and their own motherboard.  This is something new as we mainly know iBUYPOWER for using other companies hardware in their custom systems.  This system is small enough to fit in your home theater, can easily be taken to LAN parties and did I mention it looks awesome?  Inside you will find a watercooled Z77 system, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 and 8GB of DDR3.

Special thanks to iBUYPOWER for providing us with the Revolt Gaming System to review.

iBUYPOWER has not finalized their packaging yet so our Revolt came in some pretty plain packaging.  Opening the box up everything is nicely protected inside with styrofoam and plastic.  Getting it all out you have the Revolt system, power cable, flash drive with the user’s manual on it, and drivers and utilities CD.
