Beastly 'Big O' gaming rig comes with integrated Xbox 360

Woof! Image: Origin.

Own a steroid-fed Alienware or Predator computer system? Think you’ve got bragging rights cornered when it comes to owning the ultimate gaming rig? Look upon the terrifying ‘Big O’ from the tech boffins at Origin… and think again.

Described as “pushing the limits of performance,” the Big O offers up a starting configuration that packs in a liquid-cooled Intel i7 930 processor overclocked to 4.0GHz, the liquid-cooled ASUS Rampage III Extreme chipset, the liquid-cooled SLI NVIDIA GTX 480 GPU, and a muscular 6GBs of Corsair Dominator RAM (1600Mhz).

Not good enough? How about the CPU Magazine configuration, which includes two liquid-cooled Intel Xeon X5680s overclocked to 4.3GHz, the liquid-cooled EVGA SR2 chipset, four liquid-cooled SLI EVGA GTX 480 graphics processors, and a scorching 12GBs of Corsair GT memory (2,000GHz).

Other core features spread across the Starting and PC Magazine configurations include two 50GBs of primary HDD storage, 2TBs of WD Caviar Black secondary storage, the LSI Megaraid SAS 9260-4i (PC Mag), the 1500-watt Silverstone strider PSU (Starting), and the 1050-watt 2x Enermax PSU (PC Mag).

If that weren’t sufficient to sate the most hardened of PC gamers, the Big O also provides ample entertainment, connectivity, and general computing options via a 12x Pioneer Blu-ray burner, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, the Rosewill media-card reader, integrated Gigabit Ethernet (dual on the PC Mag configuration), the Creative Fatal1ty Sound card, and Windows Home Premium (Starting) and Windows Ultimate (PC Mag).

And here comes the rub where our attraction is concerned: Origin’s sexy Big O also comes with an integrated liquid-cooled Xbox 360 hidden within its casing. Origin is also willing to cram a PlayStation 3 in there if you’d prefer (no word on whether there’s room for both). Woof!

Sounds good, eh? Well, yes, but such overtly capable gaming hardware comes shackled to price points that are likely to turn the stomachs of all but the most hardcore of the hardcore.

The Starting configuration of the Big O comes in at a testing $7669 USD, while the PC Magazine configuration costs a jaw-dropping and account-busting $17,000 USD.

What Color is this Dress?

White and Gold or Blue and Black?
Well this one has been trending all over the web, just what color is this dress? It all started in Scotland when the mother of a bride-to-be sent a picture to her daughter asking what she thought of the dress. The bride and groom each saw the image differently, this then got posted online and picked up by some viral sites. The lighting in photo is probably  causing different people to see it as either white and gold or blue and black. Prof Stephen Westland, chair of color science and technology at a University in the UK told the BBC that it was impossible to see what other people see but that it was most […]

Stunning Mars Rover Selfie

This image by the Curiosity Mars rover is not exactly your typical selfie. It is made up of a bunch of images taken by the rover during January 2015 by the Mars Hand Lens Imager. This (MAHLI) camera is at the end of the robot’s arm. For a sense of scale the rover’s wheels are about 20 inches diameter and 16 inches wide. Check the annotated image below for more information on the surroundings. Also if you really want to see some detail click this very large image, 36mb, at NASA.  

How the Sahara Helps Feed the Amazon (Video)

Sahara to Amazon
This cool video from NASA shows how dust is transferred across the Atlantic to the Amazon rainforest and helps nourish the plants growing there. For the first time scientists have measured the amount of dust and the amount of phosphorus in the dust. The later acts like a fertiliser and helps replenish the phosphorus the rainforest loses each year, around 22,000 tons. Amazing how something we perceive as being desolate like a desert actually has an important role in sustaining somewhere we see as teeming with life.
