HP Blackbird Exhiliration

HP today followed up NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 200 unveiling with expanded details on an upgrade to the Blackbird 002. The Exhilaration Edition bundles two GTX 280 cards in SLI mode and gives the gaming PC a substantial advantage over its previous configuration. Both cards are also liquid-cooled and so won't overheat at full speed, HP adds. The system also gets a 3.2GHz Core 2 Extreme with a similar cooling treatment and is paired up with low-lag Corsair DDR3 memory.

The system also revolves around its AV capability with an LG Super Multi combo drive that can read both Blu-ray and the defunct HD DVD format as well as burn CDs and DVDs. A Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi also gives it better audio quality than most integrated sound with 7.1-channel surround for movies.

HP hasn't yet provided full details of hard drive space or the final price but says the system comes preloaded with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit to handle 4GB or more of memory and should be custom-configurable today.
