Hey Manduh; I know the feeling I did the same that case is beautiful. I was looking at there internal work as well beautiful wire work and routing for there liquid cooling.

Drool worthy indeed! HotHardware have always given away top notch systems, and this ATI/AMD combo gaming powerhouse is dynamite!

Agreed. This is a very nice machine. I am personally a really big fan of the Creative line of X-Fi sound cards, put that together with the 2g 5970 ATi V-card and you already have a great combo for the user experience. The processor is strong enough for any game or program you throw at it and toss in Windows 7 you have a great user interface. (Finally a Microsoft O/S that actually works right out of the box). Also the paint is a great aesthetic perk.

On top of that it's an Origin product. I know that probably doesn't mean much right now, but I think in a few years their name will become synonymous with high quality, great tech support, and incredible warranty.

The processor is the limited edition AMD TWKR, great for overclocking if you're into that kinda thing. And with the 1.2 Kilowatt PSU, I'll have enough juice leftover to attach a blender to my PC...now wouldn't that be interesting!

Attach a Blender to your PC? Ha!

I say that a USB powered back massage would be in order late at night! Let's design a new kind of chair!

Haha, that's a tough choice. I do love my strawberry banana smoothies, but the back massager would come in handy during a 12 hour gaming session!

Hey gibbersome most PSU's like this one will have both a incoming for the wall in and an out socket beneath it, if not you'd have to adapt one. Then your tell your in game group your going to the bathroom when you have your smoothie ingredients in the blender, unplug you back massager, turn on your blender then poor the mix in your cup. The replug the back massager back into the psu and type I'm back. So it would be very simple really.

Lol....ummm...my head hurt after reading that! Tongue Tied

With the 1.2 KW requirement, you'd need a proper surge protector for this beast. And the first I'd do is take it to a LAN party and show it off.

A piece of beauty like this is like a hot girlfriend (or boyfriend). Sure it's fun to spend time with her locked in your apartment, but none of your friends will believe you have one until you show them.

awesome rig, amd/ati FTW hope i win :D

The best AMD/ATI combination available out there as well. How awesome is that?!

Two weeks to go before some lucky person wins this beauty. Oh an what you were saying about the Nvidia 300 series "gibbersome" from what I am hearing and with the frequency level I have been getting lately I don't think you wait will be to long on a 5800 series.

0

Really? That's great news. I was expecting a little more out of Nvidia at CES 2010 so I assumed any release date was at least several months away.

And you're right! Two weeks!

I tell you what Origin is really hitting the market like this very boldly. There components seem to be quality ones as well, and there pricing seems reasonable to me especially compared to what I've seen from other specialization units like them.

0

That is a sweet system would love to have it looks awsome

VPN (Virtual Private Network) is basically like logging into a work computer from home. However in this case it would be logging into a Lan Parties active games from home.

Ok now I  am anxious for Monday lol. Someones about to win this awesome unit.

0
+ -

Same here! Been pacing around in my apartment since 12 am....posting on the forums helps the anxiety though.

Every second and every minute counts here. Wink I should be fast asleep now but im to hyped up and there's still 2 more days to go!!! Can't wait for the announcement and best of luck to EVERYONE!

Come to think of it, the level of activity tonight has been unusually high at 3 am in the morning. This goes to show two important things:

1. None of us has anything better to do on a Friday night.

2. There's more than one anxious soul waiting to win this awesome system.

 

P.S. Just checked the specs again and wow! The things I could do with that ATI 5970....

Ok I am going into praying mode, or maybe I will just repeat I hope I win the TWKR Origin beauty of a system until the winner is announced.

0
