Corsair had acquired the performance system builder Origin PC in 2019, and we are seeing the first apparent synergic effects of this at CES 2020 with the all-new Big O system. The one-off from last year was a hand-built concept that made serious waves online by incorporating a PC, XBOX One X, PS4 Pro, and Nintendo Switch in the same chassis. It was not really intended to be a retail product, however, but this new 2020 version will actually come to the market in two main flavors: with an Xbox One S or a PS4 Pro pre-installed in a Corsair Crystal Series 280X dual-chamber case.

Origin will still offer all the usual configurations on the gaming PC side, with the base configuration starting at $2,499 MSRP for the XBOX One S version paired with a 1 TB HDD, as well as an Intel Core i5-9600K, 16 GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 GPU, a 240 GB SSD, and a 450 W power supply. The interesting element is certainly the console within, as it will be liquid cooled alongside some additional elements to keep the rest of the key components cool as well. You may also opt for upgraded storage options for the console, and further customize it by having an Elgato capture card built-in, so that you could stream your console gaming straight through the PC for example. Also, thanks to the completely separated power setup, your console would not shut down if your PC happens to go into standby for example. In terms of warranty, Origin PC will offer direct warranty for the consoles as well just like its traditional PCs. The Big O is up for pre-order with a special price starting at $2327 on the Origin website now.

$2300+ asking price is kinda high for what seems to be a mid-range PC along with a bare PCB but liquid-cooled XB1S or PS4 Pro together in a Crystal 280X. Maybe changing to AMD build like a R5 3600, B450/X570 mini-ITX board, 16GB Vengeance RGB PRO RAM 3200MHz dual stick kits, GPU remains unchanged, a decent 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD + cheap 1TB 2.5in SSD for games, a Hydro H60 AIO for the PC side & a beefier SF600 PSU. All that would be within $2k or more on top of all that RGB fans, LED strips & whatnot.
Don't get me wrong; this particular system is much more reasonable than the 2019 Big-O when Origin PC built it as a true "All-In-One" system. The price tag for an i5-9600K, Z390 mATX board, 16GB/32GB Dominator Platinum RGB, H100i Platinum RGB AIO, Corsair 240GB PCIe SSD & a SF450 PSU? It doesn't justify the $2300+ asking price at all.

This "Big O" will never be as cool as mecha anime Batman. Sorry just the facts. It's not worthy of carrying the title until it looks like a sick noir steampunk lookin giant robot with slick hair.

I'm not sure who this monstrosity is for. I guess I might buy one if I saw it on overstock.com. Otherwise I'm going to assume it's a "do it just to do it" sorta thing

"Hey Mom, will you give me a Big O for my birthday?".

("The Big O" often refers to an orgasm).
