CYBERPOWERPC has been at the forefront of customizable gaming systems for a while. In fact we've sat down with them at CES for quite a few years now. So it wasn't too surprising to read that they'd become the system provider for one of the cooler eSports tourneys this summer, Red Bull Battle Grounds Atlanta. In fact, they're supplying 128 Zeus Mini's for the tournament which John covered back at this years CES. The full press release is after the jump. Personally, I've always wanted to play in one of these, but the only game I've ever been good enough to consider it at is the EA NHL series, and I don't see a lot of serious tournament play for hockey games.
