Origin Big O fuses top-spec gaming PC with an Xbox 360 Slim, leads to heart-attack inducing price tag

Origin Big O.jpgAre you a mega-rich gaming nut with more cash than you know what to do with? Then you’ll almost certainly want to take a look at Origins latest gaming PC, the Big O.

One of the most powerful gaming rigs available, the Big O entry level model features an overclocked 4.0GHz Intel Core i7 930 processor, dual NVIDIA GTX 480 GPUs, a liquid cooled Rampage III Extreme motherboard, 6GBs of memory, dual 50GB SSD drives, a 2TB hard drive, Creative Fatal1ty sound card, and a built-in Blu-ray burner.

If you’ve got the cash you can also further beef up the specs by adding in dual Intel Xeon X5680 processors overclocked to 4.3GHz, an EVGA SR2 motherboard, quad SLI EVGA GTX 480 GPUs, 12GBs of memory, four 50GB SSD drives, liquid cooling, two 2TB hard drives, a built-in Blu-ray burner, and 8 channel HD audio sound.

To call it a gaming PC in the strictest terms however is only telling half the story. You see, tucked away in it’s innards is also a fully functioning Xbox 360 Slim console, that can be used simultaneously as the PC components run programs in the background.

As you can imagine, a gaming Frankenstein like this isn’t going to come cheap. The entry-level model starts at $7,669 (£5,000), while the fully souped-up machine will set you back a worrying $16,999 (£10,950).

By the time you’ve paid that off with your paper round, the Xbox 1440 will be out and you’ll be wearing incontinence pants.

  • CyberpowerPC has announced their most recent Gamer Scorpius range which can comprise of a handful of desktop gaming PCs that will be combined with AMD’s new FX-series “Bulldozer” CPU series.

  • Origin PC’s Big O, starting at $7,669, comes with a double-wide case (the Danger Den Tower 21, as they call it) and all the other high-end paraphernalia. The CPU, both GPUs, and the motherboard are all liquid-cooled even in the base configuration.
