After being the first third-party partner to begin talking about its Steam Machine in November, iBuyPower has now officially revealed its new living room-oriented system, the SBX.
The SBX was announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show in conjunction with Valve's CES press conference.

It did state the system will be coming "later in 2014" for $499, runs Steam OS, comes with a Steam Controller, and is available in two colors: matte black and white.
