Acer has updated its desktop hot rods at CeBIT 2010 with the launch of the Predator G7750 desktop gaming PC.

Typically, this beast comes with all the mod cons and usually in triplicate just to make sure. At the heart is, of course, an Intel Core i7 CPU which you can overclock with software and use to process a total of eight threads at a time in the four cores.

It comes with the option of either an ATI CrossFireX GPU or Nvidia SLI, up to 12GB of RAM, and four slots for 3.5-inch 3Gbps HDDs of up to 2TB each in either RAID 0,1, 5 or 10 formation that can be removed while the machine is still on.

Naturally, you might be afraid that this monster will burn its way through your carpet, so there's a liquid cooling system included which can run for 5.7 years of continuous operation without fear of pump failure or coolant evaporation - both comforting and precise.

The faceplate lifts to reveal 6 x USB slots, 2 x eSATA ports, an optional Blu-ray drive and two LAN ports if you happen to want to be on multiple networks at any one time. This machine is designed to be perfect for 3D gaming with the Acer 3D monitor and Nvidia 3D system and it'll process sound very nicely too with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card and THX support. It'll also make a colourful door stop once it's outmoded.

It's out in the UK from May and will cost lots.
