Origin PC shows The Big One PC with Xbox 360
Origin PC has taken the wraps off its ultimate gaming PC, dubbed the The Big O. It's unique in having built-in slim Xbox 360 gaming console. Both the Xbox 360 and a Core i7 930 overclocked to 4.0GHz are liquid-cooled, and the base system gets 6GB of RAM. There are also two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 graphics cards with liquid cooling, and a Rampage III Extreme mainboard is hooked up to the flowing water system to ease overclocking.
There are two 50GB SSD drives in a RAID stripe preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium, while most storage fits on a 2TB Caviar Black hard drive from WD. The slim Xbox 360 allows for pure gaming while the PC is performing other tasks. To handle the load, Origin has put a 1,500 watt power supply onboard. A Pioneer Blu-ray burner and a front-panel mounted Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card handle media duties.
Pricing for The Big O starts at $7,669.
