Default First Gaming PCs Featuring 45nm Pop Up

From our front-page news:
It didn't take long for PC boutiques to pick up on Intel's latest 45nm processor, as both Alienware and recently acquired Hypersonic each have systems available. OCZs latest child is going all out, with a system that consists of Intel's QX9650, 2GB of high-speed DDR3 RAM, ASUS P5E3 Deluxe WiFi motherboard, 2x 8800 Ultras, 1000W Enermax PSU, 150GB (?!) Western Digital 10K RPM drive, among a slew of other components and peripherals. The base system is $5,649.00, but all individual parts can of course be upgraded if there are upgrades available.

Alienware is offering a similar system, although they don't disclose the names of many of the components they use, only their specs. Of great interest though is the fact that their base system consists of two ATI Radeon HD 3870s in Crossfire mode - a GPU that is not even officially announced yet, but will be later this week.


Sunnyvale, Calif.,-November 12, 2007-
OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, PC components, and system builds, today announced Hypersonic PC, the System Division of the Group, will be one of the first to offer Intelís new high-end desktop processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX9650 quad core. The exciting new CPU will be featured in the renowned Sonic Boom OCX series to deliver a state-of-the-art solution for the most hardcore gamers and media enthusiasts.

Why do I like that case? ... I shouldn't, its not "beautiful" but I do. I wonder if they sell it separately.

Personally I don't much care for a name to be plastered on the front of the case like that, but to each their own. I am very doubtful they'd sell it separately. I don't believe any boutique does that.

Oh no... the name is the only thing that looks bad on that thing. I just meant the blue and the black.
