Commodore re-enters the PC Market with Rigs customers can’t afford
Obviously going after the same high end gaming market in which Alienware has enjoyed such success, Classic PC maker Commodore (in name only) has announced their GX and XX gamer PCs online to the European market.
Promising the “fastest, most powerful Gaming PC money can buy,” both come with quad-core Intel processors humming along at 2.66GHz – with an 8MB Cache, an ASUS P5N32-E NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI™ motherboard, 2 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Raid 0 hard drives, and up to 2GB of Corsair™ DOMINATOR™ DDR RAM.
Also included are a standard DVDRW drive, a massively powerful 850W ICE Cube power supply, Creative’s hallmark SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer card, and not one, but 2 NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GTX 768MB SLI™ graphics cards. The GX and XX PCs run on Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium and even come with a custom “C-Kin” paint job on it’s removable panels which seems more silkscreened – not that it’s a bad thing.
But what’s really fun, is that they also come preloaded with an emulator – to play all those classic (and graphically challenged) C64 games!
With that kind or work under the hood, it’s no wonder that the cost is between $3500-$5800 or more.
Suddenly that overpriced PS3 looks a lot more attractive.
