Origin PC introduces The Big O, a gaming PC with all the bells and whistles, including a liquid-cooled Xbox 360 Slim built right in, and it can be yours today for the price of a small used car.

The high end gaming PC purveyors at Origin PC are known for packing everything they can into their pricey gaming systems, but The Big O takes the cake. The starting configuration combines the power of an Intel Core i7 930 processor overclocked to 4.9GHz, dual NVidia GTX480 graphics cards, and 6GB of Corsair Dominator memory at 1600 MHz into one beefy, completely water-cooled monstrosity of a gaming rig.

And then they add an Xbox 360.

"The Big O will satisfy the demands of even the most power hungry gamer, but when you create the ultimate personal computer system it has to be designed to go above and beyond gaming" said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO and Co-Founder of ORIGIN. "From the hottest games on the market to digital video editing and 3D rendering you will have the power to perform at every level. To have the best you have to build using the latest in computer technology that guarantees unmatched performance and that is exactly what you get with the Big O."


Of course such an insane gaming rig comes at an equally insane price. The starter configuration is priced at $7,669, which is more than I paid for a quality used car last week. And that's the low-end. Check out this configuration chart to see how pricey this monster can get.

I'd be in a house before I paid $16,999 for a gaming computer, but that's just me. I'd just as soon attach my Xbox 360 to the top of my PC with duct tape. It wouldn't be nearly as attractive, but I'd have enough money leftover to put my child through college.

You can see how high you can get the price by configuring your own Big O at Origin's web site.

This might be slightly off topic, but Big O is the only anime series I have ever seen where the dub was superior to the original. People often cite Cowboy Bebop as having a superior dub, but in reality it just about matches the quality of the original. (Which is no mean feat, given the all-star nature of CB's cast) Big O's dub, on the other hand, outshines the original by leaps and bounds. The delivery of so many lines is just plain better.

I feel a compulsion to watch the box set coming on...
