Falcon Northwest FragBox Gaming PC Breaks Cover with GTX Titans in SLI

Most computer enthusiasts know Falcon Northwest for its screaming-fast systems and high-end PC paint jobs, but LAN-party goers will tell you that Falcon Northwest pioneered the LAN-party system with its portable-but-ultra-powerful FragBox computer. The venerable gaming system took a hiatus while the Tiki micro tower enjoyed the limelight, but it looks like we’ll all be seeing a lot of the FragBox very soon – and it’s going to be carrying two Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan video cards for firepower.

Falcon Northwest teased the FragBox to fans with a single image on its Facebook page today. That photo shows only part of a system, but it tells the whole story. It shows the iconic FragBox handle, along with the LEDs for two GeForce GTX graphics cards. Given Falcon Northwest's success with the Tiki Ivy Bridge system (which held a single GTX Titan) it makes sense that the company would look for a way to get two Titans into a small system. Enter the FragBox, which is slightly bigger and has a different internal layout.

Although Falcon Northwest hasn’t released many details yet, Forbes checked one out and reports that the LAN party-friendly system has an overclocked six-core Intel Extreme Edition i7 3970x (at 4.7GHz) on an Asus Rampage IV motherboard. It sounds like the system has plenty of memory (32GB, in fact), and multiple SSDs, all powered by a 1200W Silverstone PSU. Jaw-dropping pricing to come.

Jaw-dropping price... I expect this computer will cost more than the last car I bought. Sounds like it's going to be incredibly powerful though.

Yeah, luxury rigs like this usually come with a luxury price tag. It'll be interesting to see (well, hear) what kind of noise this system makes.

I like the fact that there is a push to make small going rigs super powerful. But, it would be nice if there was some competition pushing the prices down. This probably costs more than Somalia's defense budget

4k.

i wonder how long it will last before a game will ask to much for that rig.

For that kind of money I don't want to be carrying it around in my car to someones house with cables run everywhere. Lost an Xbox 360 that way when someone kicked the cables and broke the HMDI cable out along with the female part of the Xbox

It looks like Falcon NW's pre-order configuration tool is up, and the minimum starting price is a little north of $1,600. Not bad, but there are no Titans to be found in a config at that price :-)
