Acer Predator in US

Along with its new displays, Acer today marked the US release of the Aspire Predator, the company's first dedicated gaming PC. The copper orange tower is designed for access with a sliding front bay cover, front ports and a tool-free hard drive cage accessible from the outside; it also comes with built-in liquid cooling and three PCI Express X16 slots (plus one X8) to support multi-card graphics.

In American trim, the Predator is designed to appeal to a more mainstream audience than more exotic offerings such as HP's Blackbird series. The $1,649 base system carries a 2.5GHz Core 2 Quad, a GeForce 9600 GT for video, dual 640GB hard drives and a high 8GB of built-in memory. Moving up to a $2,199 variant brings a 2.83GHz processor as well as much faster GeForce 9800 GTX graphics and a third 640GB disk.

Both systems should be available today through ABS.
