Gaming rig has Xbox inside

Origin PC has just released a gaming rig which has everything you want including a games console for when you get bored with PC games. The Big O offers liquid-cooled, over-clocked processors, high-end graphics, but if you want a change of pace, it has an Xbox 360…built right in.

According to the company the Big O will satisfy the demands of even the most power hungry gamer, but when you create the ultimate personal computer system it has to be designed to go above and beyond gaming.

The Xbox is liquid-cooled so gamers no longer have to switch between console gaming and PC gaming. All the ports are all accessible from The Big O’s case, and the Xbox can run separately from the PC.

If the computer is too busy encoding video the Xbox 360 console can give you something to do. The configuration features a liquid-cooled Intel Core i7 930 processor overclocked to 4 GHz, dual Nvidia GTX480 graphics cards, 6 GB of RAM, dual 50 GB SSD drives and a 2 TB RAID, a 12× Blu-ray burner, integrated 5-port Ethernet switch, Creative’s Fatal1ty sound card, and a 1,500 Watt power supply. It runs on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

It is not cheap though as the standard configuration starts at $7,669.00, while the high-performance version selling for $16,999.00.

way to go! $7,669.00 to $16,999.00 for taping a PC to an Xbox and then shoved into a bigger box.

are they targeting gaming addicts from outerspace or is that price in yen?

I actually think they're trying to make the world a better place by targeting spoiled rich kids, and by doing so, gradually reduce their fortunes, while spreading the wealth around. (Well, some of it)
