Can’t decide if you should buy a gaming PC or video game console? Well, that is a first-world, modern person’s dilemma, but thanks to Origin PC Big O, it could be easily resolved – if you have $2,473 or more to spare.
You may remember the the Big O 2.0 Concept, a custom PC that had all three popular consoles living alongside a PC system.
Origin PC has since dial it down a little. With the Big O, you don’t get all three current generation of video game consoles. Instead, you will have to choose between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S to go with the configurable PC setup.
The chassis is a custom Corsair Crystal Series 280X with a dual-chambered design to accommodate both a console and PC system. The entire system is water cooled with both systems sharing the same cooling system.
On the PC end, Big O can be configured with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or Intel i9-9900K processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU, up to 32 GB of RAM, and optional SSD storage.
Origin PC is also pushing the Big O as a creator’s rig and as such, it is offered with an optional internal video capture card for streaming console gaming, or recording of gaming footage that could later be edited and shared using the same PC.
It is a brilliant idea, no doubt – except that there’s a foreseeable problem. You see, now that the next-generation console from both Sony and Microsoft will be landing later this year, this rig could be outdated fairly quickly.
It is definitely not for someone who felt the need to have the latest in technology. But if you are like me who have a thing for sticking with older console, perhaps the Origin PC Big O could be the answer to best of both worlds.
