Maingear Axess – A Home Theatre That Can Handle Hardcore! Gaming, That is!

maingear-axess1Looking for a HTPC (Home Theatre PC) that you can actually play the top most demanding games on?

Maingear’s new Axess HD Gamer should cover all those very bases.

The Axess is loaded with a Core i7 processor, up to 12GB of DDR3 memory, 2x NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT cards in SLI, a Phantom Lapboard and robust media center capabilities.

As well as that you get a Blu-ray drive, 8-channel HD audio, Windows Vista Home Premium and up to 4TB of hard drive storage or, if you choose, dual 160GB SSDs.

You can pretty much hook it up to anything as connections-wise it sports: DVI-D, VGA, HDMI and component out, dual gigabit ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports, two 6-pin FireWire ports and eSATA. There is also the option of adding a TV Tuner (no CableCARD).

The Axess HD Gamer was conceived to deliver unsurpassed gaming performance fused with advanced media center capabilities all contained within a low profile case, making it the perfect cornerstone for any home theater environment” said Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of MAINGEAR. “A lot of the media centers currently on the market don’t specifically address the PC Gamer and we want to give our customers a solution to game from the comfort of the living room without sacrificing quality or performance.

Like most Maingear kit you can spend hours going through the options and customising it to exactly what you want – in there lies the danger.

If you ticked all the top bits a fully loaded Axess will hit $6,000 (the basic version costs $1,800).

Hmmmmmmm………don’t think I’m ready for that just yet – howsabout you?
