ORIGIN Announces Big O PC/Xbox 360 Hybrid System

The argument over PC vs. Console gaming can now be resolved. ORIGIN, a custom PC maker just announced a system that includes not only a pretty hefty Gaming PC but also a system with an integrated Xbox 360. Sound interesting? Well the system, called Big O is a mean competitor with Dual Liquid Cooled Xeon x5680′s overclocked to 4.3Ghz on each of 6 cores. (You can get a measly 4 Ghz Core i7 930 as well), dual Nvidia GTX 480 cards (also liquid cooled), 6GB of RAM, 2TB of Raid 0 storage and oh yeah, an Xbox 360 built in.

A PC this monstrous also deserves a ginormous case, so the system ships in a Danger Den Tower 21 Double Wide and 1500Watt or dual 1 kW PSUs.

In case you’re considering this purchase, the base model will set you back around $7700, with customization as an option that can max out the system at closer to $17,000.  You can read the mind-blowing specs at the Big O product page.

So, anyone in the mood to pony up the payola for this rig? Pardon me while I take out a second mortgage on my house for this.

How stupid. PC > Consoles. How bout you throw out that POS X360 and build this computer yourself, it will be 3x cheaper anyway.

I agree. You could buy a system with those specs for under 2000 euros EASILY.

2000 euros lol your buggy with 4 nvidia 480′s alone about 17k is very overballed in price but 2000euros your out of your mind working with dual xeons of that model and 4 video cards.

PC is really stupid design, one chip doing everything would be many times faster than having processors all over the place…
