Default ORIGIN PC's "The Big O" is About as High-End as a PC Can Get

Every so often, a high-end gaming PC gets announced that impresses me enough to talk about it, and today's announcement of ORIGIN PC's "The Big O" is one to catch my attention. In the high-end PC game, there seems to be little that can be done to differ from the competition, but ORIGIN PC has certainly pulled out all the stops to remain on top... and it's made possible with a $16,999 configuration.



Read the rest of our post and discuss it here!

For some reason none of the articles are opening for me today but wow! What a machine. The "Big O" is another term for orgasm so I'm sure computer geeks around the world just...

Should be fixed now. And the term you're looking for is Geekasm. I know it's an O.... but oh well.

Shame the thing will be completely and hopelessly underpowered in 2 months time, that Xbox 360 is the only thing preventing it from looking like a dinosaur...

We've been having server issues over the past month, and we're still trying to completely rid them. We're hoping to be back in tip-top shape soon.

I personally think the name is foolish, but I admit, it does kind of relate itself well.
