ORIGIN Custom Gaming PCs Offer Unlimited Options

Alienware, Dell, HP, Falcon Northwest--the list goes on and on. But really, can there ever be enough gaming PCs? We think not. Today, a new company has broken out by the name of ORIGIN, and it's hoping to provide custom gaming machines to those with specific requests and the money to pay for 'em.

The new company is also unveiling its first two machines, the GENESIS desktop and EON18 notebook. The idea here is pretty unique--for the desktop, you choose any chassis on the market, any paint you want and pretty much any hardware, with prices starting at $1699. Obviously things will get pretty expensive if you choose wild stuff, but at least the option is there. Have a look at the first two options below, and get ready for the custom PC market to get a lot more interesting. 

Perhaps what's interesting out of the gate is that these folks are ex-Alienware team members.  Now gunning for Dell?  You betcha...


Gaming PC Executives Respawn with ORIGIN Custom Gaming PCs

  • Each ORIGIN Co-Founder Brings over a Decade of Industry Experience
  • True Customization with Unlimited Color and Airbrush Design Options
  • Guaranteed Overclocking, Liquid Cooled Desktops, and Dual GPU Laptops
  • Personalized Lifetime Phone/Online Support and Lifetime Labor for Repairs and Upgrades
  • Strategic Partnerships with Fatal1ty® and Killer Paint

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ORIGIN, a new custom gaming PC manufacturer, has unveiled the GENESIS and EON18 systems, featuring levels of customization, aggressive design, personalized support and performance, the likes of which the PC gaming industry has never seen.

Much like its desktops and notebooks, ORIGIN PC was built from the ground up by PC experts, each with over 10 years of experience at the forefront of the gaming PC explosion, and each one holding executive titles of Dell’s acquired gaming arm, Alienware. ORIGIN gives hardcore gamers an unsurpassed level of customization, allowing customers to send in any desktop chassis on the market and build their custom GENESIS in that chassis.

In a partnership that truly unites gaming and artistry, ORIGIN is bringing in the expert airbrushing talents of Killer Paint, best known for their custom paint jobs in the automotive industry and innovative True Fire® effect. Killer Paint will airbrush each chassis by hand with standard colors, metallic colors, or artistic designs. For true personalization, buyers can send in their own design or work with a design specialist who will build a system that will encompass the individuality and personal flair of its owner.

For the ultimate in performance, ORIGIN has joined forces with leading PC gaming brands, such as Fatal1ty, to offer its customers the very best hardware available. From the fastest processors to Fatal1ty branded graphics, memory and sound cards, ORIGIN systems prepare gamers for the best gaming experience possible.

ORIGIN’s commitment to gamers does not end with performance and design; build quality, system testing and service are just as important. Every ORIGIN system is put through an intensive three day burn-in testing process that includes game benchmarking and installing all the latest drivers, to ensure stable gameplay and performance. Add to the mix lifetime phone/online support along with lifetime labor provided by a personalized team of experts, and it’s clear that the brand is serious about its commitment to gamers.

“Many boutique computer makers have lost their way, forgetting what’s important to gamers and becoming just another corporate entity,” says Kevin Wasielewski, CEO/Co-Founder of ORIGIN PC. “ORIGIN is the return of the real gaming PC giving gamers exactly what they want with the most customizable, best performing, hand painted and hand built gaming PCs available.”

“I have known the founders of ORIGIN for several years and have selected them as my premier gaming PC partner,” said Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, the world's leading professional gamer. “With ORIGIN, I want to focus on what true, hardcore gamers and enthusiasts want from their gaming PC: high-performance, personal customization, and a PC that delivers the best gaming experience in collaboration with my licensed partners.”

“With decades of experience building some of the best gaming PCs on the market, ORIGIN is one gaming PC manufacturer to be taken seriously,” says Eddie O’Brien, VP of Microsoft - US OEM. “The winning combination of Windows 7’s performance and stability along with ORIGIN's customization and service is something gamers worldwide will want to experience.”

ORIGIN PC has brought together the best hardware in the computer gaming industry with original paint and design options to deliver a powerful, yet one of a kind gaming computer.

Not a bad company, but CyberPowerPC.com is a better company as far as bang for your buck. A comparatively specified system on CPPC is about $400 less expensive, plus they usually have a few give-aways such as flash drives (i even got an i-pod nano with mine). The one thing OrigionPC.com has that is really cool, is the custom paint jobs... if you want to pay for them.

For ultimate customization, I'd be willing to pay the premium. But I don't think their systems are aimed at mainstream gamers as much as enthusiasts.

For example, their most expensive cooling solution would set you back $500. A little ludicrous but completely awesome at the same time.

As gibbersome said, this is a preium service/computer.  The prices shouldn't suprise you, since everyone who computers charges you these higher prices for each item.  I'd say the case looks pretty sweet.  I thought  the macro keys on the laptop were an interesting feature that I've seen nowhere else.

I like CyberPower PC too. Not only because mine was free, but they have an incredible attention to detail when they build. The cable routing on my machine is perfectly done,..... as is the design.

I like to build my own boxes, but in a pinch it would be CyberPower PC that gets my call.

Yeah, I remember the pictures, the cabling was a work of an artist. Gorgeous!

I prefer Cyberpower over Alienware, and for me it hits the cost/quality sweetspot much like the ATI 5850.

The ORIGIN will be competing against Falcon Northwest. It's a cut above the rest.
