This Liquid-Cooled Xbox 360 PC Hybrid Costs More Than My Car

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 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 1600MHz 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 $US7669, 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 $US16,999 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 school.

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


    Another thing that I can't buy.

      Takes ancient Pc and duct(duck)-tapes original Xbox to it. Problem solved.

    $16,999. Hmm, not in my life-time, unless i will the Lotto or Powerball.

    For $7K I'd really have thought a polished-black, slot loading DVD drive was in order.

    That is pretty freakin cool.

    My notebook kills this.
    Maybe not.

    This post has been helpful to know what I can expect from my new $1000 PC that I get in a years time.

    Cool so blow out your power bill while at the same time feeling the crushing realisation you're so pathetic as to buy something like that.

    You could assemble a hot rig for a fraction of the price, not to mention the 360 and PC share exclusives so thats pretty pointless as well.
