Maingear yesterday announced that it has started shipping a bad-ass new line of gaming rigs that are enough to make your pulse quicken. Ranging from $2,249 to a dream crushing $5,149, the top of the line F1X packs an overclocked Core i7, maintenance free X20 watercooling, 12GB of triple–channel DDR3 RAM, a Blu-ray burner, and last but certainly not least, an 80GB SSD to complement the 1.5TB of regular HDD storage.
Peep the specs below and if anyone happens to have a spare five grand lying around and is feeling philanthropic, you know where to find me.
And, if you're one of those harsh but realistic people who
thinks believes knows it's not just what's on the inside that counts, these machines are also super sleek.

Can it play Hello Kitty???Reply
Are you kidding me? whats up with the super mild CPU overclocks? As if that x20 (probably some asetek LCLC variation/upgrade) couldn't handle a 975 to 4.0 easy, and the 950 to AT LEAST 3.6 easily.Reply
Yawn. They could have at least overclocked it higher than that...Reply
On another note, why does the "zoom" link under the picture show a picture that's the same resolution?

Yes it can.

This doesn't seem that impressive. Sure you have dual 5870's, SSD and an i7 975, but the top model is only running at 3.6 GHz. You could overclock a 920 to that with minimum effort.Reply
With that price, why not a 256GB SSD? Or at least paint the interior black.Reply
You could build a better performing Rig than that F1X750 for $2k...Reply
Even at lawyer rates, $3000 for a couple hrs of work is pushing it.
Some will snub their noses. But everyone would like to have the nice
extras. Blu Ray, SSD, over the top memory.
Yeah, at that price where are the dual 5970 cards?Reply
