Okoro Media Center: serious living-room gaming

Media Center PCs are all well and good for acting like a beefed-up TiVo, but as a gaming rig they're generally underpowered. They're built to sit under your cable box and store videos, maybe go online, and not much else. But the MS-GX300 from Okoro is meant for more. No, sir, this beast is set to do everything a standard MCPC can do, plus run games in a more than proficient fashion on that beautiful new plasma HDTV of yours. Coming loaded with a dual-core Athlon64 FX-60 processor and 1 GB of RAM standard, along with a hot hot hot nVidia GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics card to run all the latest and greatest PC games. As a nice bonus, you get a 7-inch touchscreen on the front to navigate when the big screen is too much (listening to music, searching for files). All of this comes to you starting at a reasonable-for-what-you-get $4,500, available online now.
