VoodooPC has announced the availability of Intel Core 2 Extreme-based high performance desktops. Part of the Omen series, the desktops are among the first to make use of Intel's just-announced Core 2 CPUs. As is always the case, being a member of the early adopter club comes at a hefty price, with base configurations starting at $4,400 and going all the way up to $6,000. A mere bag of shells, really. The systems use Core 2 Extreme CPUs running at 2.93 GHz. Other specs include an 80GB, 7,200 RPM hard drive, 16X dual layer DVD burner and 2GB of RAM. Users can choose between ATI and nVidia cards, with the GeForce 7900 GT hovering on the high end.
The Omen series come in aluminum cases with too-cool-for-the-room designer cutouts and so forth. You know, the type of things that are cries for help.
