Hewlett-Packard has announced it will join the gaming PC league and will begin to offer built-to-order custom personal computers meant for game enthusiasts.

HP has been selling gaming machines under the Compaq brand in limited quantities for the past months, during the pilot program they were convinced there was a lot of room for an actual custom-tailored gaming PC that will compete with other industry veterans such as Alienware, Falcon Northwest, etc.

The X Gaming machines will feature a standard chassis from CoolerMaster, known for its work in keeping system noise down while also decreasing heat, and red glowing lights in front and back that will make it stand out in the dark.

The Compaq "X Gaming" machines are expected to appear by June or July with prices starting at around $1,599 and peak at more than $3,000.
