    Re: News - Origin unveils The Big O

    Does seem a bit odd to include a 360, dare I say if on both PC wins so there is only a few 360 exclusives left.

    Saying that the specs look equaly insane, if I won the lottery I would buy one for the fun of it, but in the oridinary word I just don't need an epenis that big.

    As a gaming machine, that's 100% pure waste, but as a computing powerhouse....

    I just love that it ships in a crate. Not a box. A crate. A wooden crate, delivered on a pallet.

    I'd even buy a Dell if I got to open the packing with a crowbar.

    I think that's what I'd get on the plaque.

    "12-thread CPUs clocked at an amazing 4.3GHz." Big meh. I had a single core once that could do that.

    So, when you plug this monster in, does the sun go dim?

    Re: News - Origin unveils The Big O

    If I won the lottery, I would probably build something like that, minus the 360.

    You'd need a special case though, only ones I've seen that are suitable and not hideous are from Mountain Mods. Some proper SSDs would be good as well. Four 50GB SSDs in RAID0? Seriously?

    But you'd think for the money they could make something a little more handsome. I't looks like it should be hidden rather than seen. Shame.
