Acer has revealed an updated version of its gamer-oriented Aspire G desktop, also known as the Predator. It has the same Orange casing as its predecessor, but naturally a quick look at the specs shows some improved horsepower. Among them is Intel’s new Core i7 950's running at 3.06GHz and X58 Express chipset, 6GB of DDR3 RAM (up to 12GB), and a pair of Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 graphics cards.

The new Aspire G also sports a 1TB 7,200rpm SATA HDD, Blu-ray optical drive, multi-format memory card reader, bundled G15 gaming keyboard and G9 mouse, and runs Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. On the connectivity side, Acer’s gaming desktop comes with no less than eleven USB 2.0 ports, two eSATA ports, four DVI-D outputs and two Gigabit Ethernet ports. There’s no mention of a specific release date, but its price is expected to be in the $2,700 range when it launches.
