Acer announced the affordable, yet powerful Aspire Predator AG5900-U3092 gaming PC for mainstream gamers. As the newest model in the Predator line, the Predator AG5900-U3092 sports a clean and sophisticated exterior that shrouds a powerful set of features. A modern black chassis features dramatic orange accents and an eye-catching vent design. For easy access, the power button, four USB ports as well as headphone and microphone jacks are conveniently angled on the top of the system along with a storage tray for storing and charging smart phones, digital cameras and other devices. Handy cable management is provided via intuitive grooves in the storage tray that allow different sizes of cable to snap in between, which prevents tangling and having to fumble around to find loose cables. It also has four hard drive bays, two of which are easy-swap, enabling extra hard drives to be inserted without opening the box. Users just push on the protective door and the hard drive slides out on a tray.
The AG5900 is ready for battle with 8GB DDR3 SDRAM and an Intel® Core i7 870 processor with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, which heightens performance and increases energy efficiency by allowing near-zero power consumption for inactive cores. A huge 1.5TB SATA hard drive can store a gigantic library of the most graphic intensive games and multimedia available. ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics with 1GB of discrete video memory, ATI Eyefinity Technology and full support for Microsoft DirectX® 11 delivers rich, realistic visuals for explosive HD gaming. Also, dynamic high-def 5.1-channel audio infuses games with heart-pumping sound.
This system is outfitted with a multi-in-one card reader and a combo/DVD super-multi optical drive for enjoying the most cutting-edge HD games. For those wanting to invest in future upgrades, the AG5900 is easily expandable with an available 5.25-inch optical drive bay, three open 3.5-inch HDD bays as well as two open PCI Express x1 slots and a standard PCI. There is a host of connectivity options including 12 total USB 2.0 ports (four on top, eight in back), an HDMI port, three audio jacks, an Ethernet port, display port and two DVI ports. To simplify transport, the system comes with a handle.
