Asus's Ares to come with GTX 280 Tri-SLI

The 2 Kilowatt system

Asus's pride and praise that is known by the name of Ares is going to get the GTX 280 Tri-SLI treatment. The new Asus Ares CG6155, or as Asus likes to call it, "the ultimate gaming powerhouse," will feature no less than 2 kW of power with its "dual power design."

Besides the mentioned 2kW of power and Nvidia's Tri-SLI GTX280, the new Ares will feature Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX9650 factory overclocked to 4.0GHz, paired up with Nvidia nForce 790i Ultra SLI motherboard and up to 8GB of dual-channel DDR3 1333MHz memory.

It can also be equipped with up to 4TB of HDD storage, Blu-ray drive, and it comes with a specially designed gaming keyboard, Logitech's G9 mouse, mouse pad and headset.

Unfortunately, as you would expect from Asus, the availability and the final price of the new Ares is still unknown. Of course, with these specifications we don't expect it to end up on the low-priced side. Also, you might want to consider getting a surplus reactor from a mothballed nuclear sub to cut your power bill.
