The Phobos product line is composed of gaming and multimedia PCs brought to you by BFG Technologies. This line of machines offers high functionality and has been developed with features that will quench the gaming desire of any Graduated Gamer. The developmental goal of Phobos is to deliver a gaming/home theater system for those gamers and media enthusiasts who aspire for a high-performance system, but cannot build or service one, which can be due to several reasons like lack of time, skill or enthusiasm. Therefore, BFG Technologies provides a complementary Concierge Service with Phobos, which will prevent any installation and maintenance strain.

Top-of-the-line components including the Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition 3.2GHz Processor, two upcoming BFG NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Graphics Cards, and CoolIt Contained Liquid Cooling Solutions have been used in the design of Phobos. Such high-performance components help to keep both the GPUs and CPU in great condition even when you are giving the system an intense test of its capabilities. The fact that Phobos features Windows Vista Ultimate with Media Center, four hard drive bays, RF remote and TV tuner with DVR functionality, a front slot-loading Blu-ray Disc drive, the option for 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound audio cards, and a built in iPod/iPhone syncing dock enables it to provide premier home theater entertainment.

The smooth and elegant case coupled with the concealed cable management gives Phobos a stylish appearance. Its advanced touch panel LCD provides for a System Status Overview, which is a live snapshot of the processor, storage, memory and network data. Phobos operates in three modes- Auto, Quiet, and Max and according to the selected mode of use, users can make live performance adjustments, assess the working condition of internal storage devices and manipulate audio and video files. The system also features Intel X25-E Extreme SLC SATA 64GB, Intel X25-M Mainstream MLC SATA 80GB and Intel X25-M Mainstream MLC SATA 160GB SSDs.

Phobos has most things in place for a Graduated Gamer to feel satisfied. Its high-performance components give gamers an unlimited number of gaming possibilities. It promises to be a key player in the home theater entertainment sector as well and the decision to include Windows Vista Ultimate with Media Center in its system is definitely going to make Phobos a highly desirable home theater entertainment system. But, people may be uncomfortable with its relatively massive size and the prices of its three default configurations- Phobos Performance (from $3,000), Phobos Advanced (from $5,000) and Phobos Elite (from $8,000) can be too much for some consumers.
