Piixl G-Pack gaming PC on your TV Kickstarter opens

The Piixl G-Pack, the hardcore PC that fits neatly on the back of your TV, is finally on Kickstarter.

The G-Pack is a fully loaded PC aimed at gamers who want to take advantage of the big TV in their living room without making it look like a mess of cables and ugly boxes. It’s also dead quiet. The Piixl Team has pulled out all the stops to ensure that silent passive cooling is the order of the day.

Available in three configurations the G-Pack isn’t cheap, but it will leave your mates with an Xbox One or PS4 green with envy.

The first configuration is the cheapest at $1,695 and packs a Core i3 4330 with 4GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 with 1TB HDD for storage and a 32GB Smart Response SSD to help the files and applications you use most open and run quickly.

Configuration two comes with Core i5 and GTX 970 with 8GB RAM a 2TB hard drive and 250GB and will set you back $2,095.

The final, premium, version packs a Core i7, a whopping 16GB of RAM and the blistering fast GeForce GTX 980 for some future proofed 4K gaming action. You’ll need deep pockets though with this version costing a bank-busting $2,695.

Piixl heard the cries and will also be selling the G-Pack barebones and ready for you to build yourself using components you may already have. This costs $495 or $445 if you are one of the quickest twenty to sign up to the earlybird Kickstarter. 

We saw the G-Pack in July and were impressed by the quality design and absolute quietness of the machine. Finally we’re close to getting a gaming PC for the living room that won’t get your other half annoyed.
