iBuyPower announced a new line of PCs for the video enthusiast today; and to celebrate, it is launching a YouTube contest. The winner of the Favorite Gaming Moments YouTube contest gets an iBuypower Video Pro desktop and a $2,000 gift card. Upload a video recreating your favorite gaming moment, and the winner will be selected from a group of 10 finalists by the YouTube community. The contest runs through August, and the final voting closes mid-September.
iBuypower says the three new desktops are ideal for amateur videographers to create and edit video content for the Web. Based on each system's specs, we're not inclined to disagree:
