Origin launches hybrid Xbox 360, luxury gaming PC

By on
Have an undivided passion for PC and console gaming? Can your savings account back it up? Great! Feast your eyes on "The Big O" -- a hybrid Xbox 360 dream machine. Starting at $7,669, Origin's gaming monstrosity is outfitted with a Core i7 930 overclocked to 4.0GHz, an Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard, 6GB of 1600MHz Corsair RAM, SLI'ed Nvidia GTX 480s, dual 50GB Vertex 2 SSDs in RAID 0, a 2TB WD Caviar Black for storage, a 1500W PSU, and other luxury hardware.

All of that shares a doublewide chassis with a liquid-cooled Xbox 360. Things get even crazier (read: more expensive). For $17,000, the company is selling an entirely liquid-cooled model with twin Xeon X5680 processors overclocked at 4.3GHz, an EVGA SR2 mobo, 12GB of 2000MHz RAM, quad-SLI GTX 480s, quad-RAID SSDs, dual 2TB storage, two 1050W Enermax PSUs, and the Xbox 360. The more expensive package also has a lengthier three-year warranty, but both have lifetime tech support.

The Big O is obviously limited to folks with "more money than sense," but the rest of us can still admire it from afar.
