A desktop orange: Acer expands Predator gaming lineup with two new PCs

Acer's Predator gaming desktops are probably as well known for their orange metallic exteriors as for anything inside. For the two latest additions to the lineup, the company has kept its radical design for one model and added a tamer version that just uses orange as an accent color.

Acer's Predator gaming desktops are probably as well known for their orange metallic exteriors as for anything inside. For the two latest additions to the lineup, the company has kept its radical design for one model and added a tamer version that just uses orange as an accent color.

The Predator series has staked out the midrange space in the gaming PC market, with the new AG7750-U3222 at the tip-top edge of that range with a $1,999.99 price tag and the AG5900-U3092 (pictured) being more affordable at $1,399.99. The U3222 comes with an Intel Core i7-930 quad-core processor, 12GB of RAM, and a liquid-cooling system. The new(ish) Nvidia GeForce GTX470 is the graphics card of choice, and you can make use of its 3D Vision technology if you purchase a 3D monitor as well. There are two open PCI Express x16 slots if you want to stuff additional graphics boards in for SLI capabilities, and the system comes with four hard drive cages.

The more budget-friendly AG5900-U3092 of course provides slightly less juicy specs, subbing in a Core i7-870 quad-core CPU and ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics. It also cuts down the RAM to 8GB while keeping the 1.5TB hard drive that its pricier sibling ships with, though there's apparently no additional open PCI Express x16 slot.

Acer says the pair of new Predators are currently on sale, though they don't appear to be widely available online. You can pre-order the AG7750-U3222 at Amazon, however.
