The Big O costs big green

The gaming computer market is crowded with offerings that run from entry-level machines that many can afford up to high-end rigs that have massive price tags that only the geeky gamers with lots of money to burn can afford. Origin has unveiled a new gaming PC called The Big O that will undoubtedly give you a nerdgasm when you hear the specs of the beast.

The brains of the operation are a pair of Intel Xeon X5680 CPUs that are each overclocked to 4.3GHz. Each of those CPUs has 6-cores and support ECC memory. Origin will cram up to 24GB of ECC Corsair RAM into the rig for you. Those CPUs are liquid cooled to keep things running cool and quiet. The machine can also be fitted with up to four EVGA GTX 480 FTW video cards.

 

Those cards are in SLI mode and are among the fastest NVIDIA offerings on the market today. The most interesting feature of the gaming beast is that tucked inside that tall, wheeled chassis along with the computer hardware is an Xbox 360 Slim. The Xbox 360 is liquid cooled as well and can be played while the computer chugs away on PC work. The bad news is that the beast starts at $7,669 and the full features version is a testicle shrinking $16,999.
