Maingear Axess HD Brings Hardcore Gaming to HTPCs

Illustration for article titled Maingear Axess HD Brings Hardcore Gaming to HTPCs

Maingear's new Axess HD Gamer brings hardcore PC gaming into your living room with a Core i7 processor, up to 12GB of DDR3 memory, 2x NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT cards in SLI, a Phantom Lapboard and robust media center capabilities.

More specifically, the Axess HD can include a Blu-ray drive, 8-channel HD audio, WIndows Vista Home Premium and up to 4TB of hard drive storage or, if you choose, dual 160GB SSDs. Connections include: DVI-D, VGA, HDMI and component out, dual gigabit ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports, two 6-pin FireWire ports and eSATA. There is also the option of adding a TV Tuner (no CableCARD). Granted, the Axcess is highly configurable, and if you get this thing completely loaded it will cost you over $6,000 (base $1,800). Yeah, I think I will stick with an Xbox 360 and a basic $600 HTPC for now. [Maingear]

I wouldn't really consider 2x 9800 GT's to be "hardcore"...
