HP Ships ‘Compaq X’ Gaming PCs

“The GX5000T offers a range of Pentium 4 processor choices from 2.8 to 3.4 GHz, while the GX5000Z allows users the choice of an Athlon 64 model 3500+, 3800+, or FX-53. Prices for the GX5000T will begin at $1,648.99, while a base model of the GX5000Z will cost $1,598.99.

HP was committed to using off-the-shelf parts, to ensure that there weren’t any proprietary OEM parts. “We have the same concern gamers do,” said Paul Morgan, product manager for the Compaq X. “I have a proprietary power supply in my [work] system, and I can never upgrade it.”

HP sure seems to have done their research. Expect to see a review here on Designtechnica in the next couple weeks. Notice the aluminum Coolermaster case which companies like VodooPC use as well.
