Acer enters gaming line

by



Acer is boldly entering the area where Alienware is dominant – the gaming arena. It will attempt to wrestle away some market share where high end performance PCs are concerned by launching its Aspire Predator PC range. So far from the specifications received (which you will be able to check out after the jump), the Predator line ain’t half bad, boasting a decent looking chassis at competitive prices that will definitely give your your money’s worth. There is just one lone Predator PC at this point in time – the Aspire Predator G7700, but that doesn’t mean it cannot be configured according to your liking. You will be able to choose from Sniper, Trooper, Crusher and Eliminator models, where they will come with superior components compared to the previous model along with a higher price tag.

Sniper – €1,699 (~£1,360)

  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300
  • 4GB (2 x 2GB) 800MHz DDR2
  • Dual nVidia GeForce 9600GT 512MB (SLI) Graphics
  • Dual 640GB hard drives
  • 750W power supply

Trooper – €1,999 (~£1,600)

  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450
  • 4GB (2 x 2GB) 800MHz DDR2
  • Dual nVidia GeForce 9800GTX 512MB (SLI) Graphics
  • Dual 640GB hard drives
  • 750W power supply

Crusher – €2,999 (~£2,400)

  • Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650
  • 4GB (2 x 2GB) 800MHz DDR2
  • Dual nVidia GeForce 9800GTX 512MB (SLI) Graphics
  • Dual 640GB hard drives and dual 150GB Raptors
  • 750W power supply

Eliminator – €3,999 (~£3,200)

  • Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650
  • 8GB (4 x 2GB) 1066MHz DDR2
  • Dual nVidia GeForce 9800GX2 1024MB (Quad SLI) Graphics
  • Dual 640GB hard drives and dual 150GB Raptors
  • 1000W power supply
  • Well, I would say they’re extremely beefy machines, but seriously speaking I would prefer console gaming at my age (nearing the big three 0) since there isn’t much to worry about in terms of hardware upgrades, while I would be fine with scaled down graphics on my PC when running Direct X 10 games. I suppose teens tend to be more enthusiastic about who’s PC has more framerates, but that competitiveness has already died within me quite a while back.
