Acer rolls out Aspire Predator gaming towers

updated 10:20 am EDT, Wed May 21, 2008

Acer Aspire Predator

Acer this morning is boosting its previously low-key gaming efforts through the Aspire Predator, a new line of high-end gaming desktops. Every system comes with a uniquely angular case that provides a lifting front cover to shield the PC's front as well as similarly dramatic side doors for case expansion. Past the shell, the front also hides game-friendly expansion, including front-mounted ports and a multi-bay hard drive cage that lets users add or replace disks without having to open the computer itself.

The Predator lineup pushes towards the upper spectrum of gaming systems with at least a Core 2 Extreme or an overclockable Core 2 Quad for the choice of processor, dual GeForce 8800 GT video cards, and an NVIDIA nForce 780 mainboard with headroom for up to 8GB of memory. Premium versions can scale up to two or even three GeForce 9800 GTX cards and carry dual optical drives, with one either supporting Blu-ray only or supporting both Blu-ray and the defunct HD DVD format for owners of legacy HD movies. Stock hard drive space climbs up to 1TB but allows room for three more drives through the drive cage.

Acer hasn't set pricing or release dates but plans to launch the Predator line in the US and will split the series into four models that include the Sniper, Trooper, Crusher, and Eliminator.
