    An important piece of technology was tucked away at Nvidia's CES 2011 booth, the Kegputer, which is part Sierra Nevada dispensing beer keg, part high-powered gaming rig. Kris from Nvidia explains what makes this refrigerated PC so unique.[/p]

    More info from NVIDIA.

    This mod is a blissful marriage of a 15.5 gallon keg and a liquid cooled GeForce GTX gaming PC. Did I mention that it has a fully functional beer dispensing system? Thanks to Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. we were able to develop a solution to install a 2.5 gallon mini keg with an integrated refrigeration system and in-line Co2 pump into the KEGputer. With it, you can pour ice-cold beer without the need of pesky beer pumps or giant tubs of ice.

    Last but certainly not least, we worked with our partners at EVGA, ASUS, Danger Den, Crucial and Antec to ensure that the hardware on KEGputer would make it a certifiable monster of gaming power. Feast your eyes on these specs:

    ? 2 x EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Hydrocopper 2 graphics cards in 2-Way SLI
    ? ASUS P67 Sandybridge motherboard
    ? Intel i7 2600 3.4 Ghz Sandybridge CPU
    ? 8 gigs of DDR3 Crucial Ballistix at 1600 Mhz
    ? Crucial 160 Gig SSD
    ? Danger Den Extreme liquid cooling system
    ? Antec 1200 watt TruePower Quattro PSU

    If it's powered by Nvidia GPUs, it'll be serving lukewarm beers at best. [​IMG]

    It's probably Bud Light or an equally terrible beer.

    Probably.
    I find the combination of beer and gaming perfect. Brb, getting another beer, and gonna play some WoW.

    EDIT: But, if I just had this computer, I wouldnt have to brb!

    It's just that I don't like to drink alone, and drinking while gaming alters my skills. Ok, it's fun when you're with friends, but alone [​IMG]

    But I don't drink so I couldn't tell you if it's good or bad.

    Can't the ATI cards run 6 screens? This is hardly impressive when it's requiring 2 x GTX580s... Regardless though, interesting mod but I remember seeing something identical to this months ago on bit-tech.net.
