Mobile gaming rigs include the 15.6-inch G53 and 17.3-inch G73Jw, which support 3D Nvidia graphics, USB 3.0, up to 16GB of RAM, as well as Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors.

Meanwhile, company has prepared two system boards: the Rampage III Extreme and the Crosshair IV Formula. The former is Intel X58/ICH10R-based and can be overclocked via ROG Connect, OC Kit, RC Bluetooth, and a new iPhone overclocking tool. The latter is designed for AMD-based rigs, supports dual-channel 2000MHz DDR3 RAM, and features Core Unlocker for accessing "locked" cores on AMD processors a common feature with newer boards.

Asus' new graphics cards include the MATRIX5870, which brings more power efficiency, and the ARES, a dual Radeon HD 5870 with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Yeah, I suppose it is quite reminiscent of an Alienware chassis eh?

It does look a fat alienware computer but from what the picture looks like its a solid build with fairly high quality materials, Reckon that could be quite the beast especially with water calling.

i think that case is cool. It looks like Mechs should start rolling out of that hatch on the front - either that or it goes on a cylons shoulders. Top notch and very pretty. Probably an ass to carry around tho
