    wait did i read that right? they are selling that PC for $1200?! Considering I run LoL on my macbook pro with HD3000 gfx though, it will probably run just fine, but still... overpriced for that gear.

    If I were Origin PC, I would cheap out on the motherboard and use a better CPU.

    As a man who almost drowned in the pool when I got dunked by my swim instructor as a kid.

    Holy Dust Bunnies Batman!

    With such a big fan on the side you can sure as hell sack your cleaner and sell your hoover - No more loud noises like a jet engine going off in your house because your PC case will create its own civilisation inside your PC case and call them 'People Of The Dust King' and build dust pyramids in his honor and multiply like dust bunnies do on the discovery channel.

    The RAM, the light-up PSU and the fancy motherboard are all unnecessary expenses. As is going full-ATX, really. Also, for a tournament PC, I'd have thought an SSD would be more appropriate than an HDD. Not like they need to store loads of media.

    CPU is nothing special I agree but perfectly adequate for the use at hand.

    I love how they call the IPL "IPL 5 is going be one of the biggest North American e-Sports events in history..." and the prize pool is $300,000 for those three games.

    LoL's prize pool alone for the Season Two championships was $1,000,000... Also I bet they had faster rigs.
