Acer Presents Aspire PREDATOR Gaming PC Series

Acer dedicates its new Aspire PREDATOR line of desktop computers to PC gaming enthusiasts.

Fans will appreciate the deep metallic copper colored housing: the front of the body can be raised, accompanied by an original optical bay mechanism to reveal a rewritable DVD and Blu-ray Disk reader. The USB and audio ports on top are complemented with a front-mounted multi-card reader. Blue rays of light emanate from the power button and front hard-drive door.

Predator PCs allow easy access to hard disks via a special door on the front of the lower part of the chassis: the standard Acer Easy-swap Hard Drive solution makes the 4 Serial ATA 3 Gb/s high capacity hard disks removable even when the PC is turned on and in use. RAID 0, 1, 5, 1+0 modes with NVIDIA MediaShield Storage technology guarantee the utmost data security in the event of disk failure. Also, 10,000 rpm Raptor hard drives are available as an option.

Machines feature Dual LAN ports, and the teaming mode permits two connections to work at the same time for network redundancy.

The Aspire PREDATOR incorporates the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor with 1333MHz FSB that can be tuned, along with RAM and graphic cards, using nTune utility. In addition, the NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI MCP, 3-way SLI capable motherboard offers 2 x G9600GT, 2 x G9800GTX or even 2 x G9800GX2 (4 x GPU) graphic cards depending on the configuration.

The PREDATOR features a liquid cooling system claimed to be made to last for continuous operation without fear of pump failure or coolant evaporation.

The new Aspire PREDATOR desktops come with multimedia gaming keyboards with illuminated keys, gaming mice, and support Dolby Home Theater audio enhancement as well as EAX 4.0.
