Gaming PC has formally introduced a system whose name may or may not be a play on the mythical yet only vaguely defined creature described in the Book of Revelation.

“The Beast” used to be a name, of sorts, for the most terrifying creature in the Bible, but the word “beast” has been used so often that it doesn't mean anything anymore, except a creature larger than life, with or without the scariness factor.

Gaming PC definitely doesn't want people running scared from its newest high-end desktop computer, although the price may send them fleeing anyway.

The starting sum is of $5,484.30, or 4,232-5,484.30 Euro, and while it can be brought down, it won't change the fact that The Beast is very expensive.

Of course, when the hardware is centered around the Intel Core i7 3930K six-core central processing unit, there isn't much room for stinginess.

"The Beast was built with advanced and modernized services to ensure an amazing gaming experience for its users," said an owner of Gaming PC, according to the company's press release.

An Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard holds the aforementioned CPU, as well as up to 64 GB of DDR3 RAM (G.Skill Ripjaws X).

Two graphics cards are part of the set as well, although they may seem a bit much even for the most avid of gamers.

After all, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 already has two GPUs, making two of them an overpowered quad-SLI option. The 690 is the only card eligible though, so it's either one or two of it.

Moving on, there is a primary storage drive and a secondary unit. The former is a 240 GB Intel 520 Series SSD, the latter is a 2 TB Western Digital HDD.

Further hardware and software details can be found on the official product page, where orders can also be placed.
