Of course you “ain’t got time to bleed.” This gaming rig would probably consume all of your free time.

Acer just announced its Aspire Predator desktop PC with matching G24 widescreen LCD. We think the unit is pretty cool, but the company says it’s designed to do battle—at least as far as gaming is concerned.

Each of the two models has Intel Core 2 Quad processors with NVIDIA GeForce 9000 Series graphics, a rewritable SuperMulti DVD burner, and 7.1-channel sound. Upgrades are also easy thanks to a door on the front of the funky chassis. It also has plenty of ports, including eight USB and two DVI-D jacks.

“Boasting advanced technology for exceptional speed, visuals and sound, our gaming powerhouse will fire up even hard core gamers,” said Stephanie Eggert, senior manager of Acer’s Retail Desktop Product Planning division. “It’s a killer system at a price that won’t break the bank. Aggressive in design, price and performance, the Aspire Predator is gaming nirvana.”

Of course, the G24 24-inch widescreen LCD isn’t part of the package, but the two are obviously made for each other. Also, with a 1920 x 1200 resolution and 50,000:1 contrast ratio, it’s hard to say no! We’d love to see the same design, as well as the power, in a laptop at some point.

For now, you can park yourself in front of the Aspire Predator. It’s available now, starting at $1,649. The G24 LCD will run you another $400.
