Origin PC announced a new gaming desktop called "The Big O" today. If you're one of countless gamers wishing you could play Halo 3 and StarCraft II on the same rig, then Origin PC has your back; "The Big O" boasts an integrated, liquid-cooled Xbox 360 Slim.
The most expensive configuration costs $16,999 and sports dual Xeon X5680 processors overclocked to 4.3GHz, quad GeForce GTX 480 graphics cards, 12GB of Corsair memory, dual 1-kilowatt power supplies, 200GB of solid-state storage, and a pair of 2TB WD Caviar Black hard drives handling mass storage duties. A lower-end model that rings up at mere $7,669 dials back the specs considerably, most notably cutting the dual Xeons in favor of a single Core i7-930, while still maintaining the integrated Xbox goodness.
