    Hello, I welcome you to the Aperture Science Computer-Aided Enrichment Center.

    You might have heard rumors floating around that Valve is making a consle. I decided not to wait and make one myself :) .

    It will be possible to change components of this console just by sliding motherboard tray in and out. This mini-ITX Companion Cube will be able to accommodate HD7850 or 560 Ti (more than enough to play every game on max settings in HD) and it will have the same volume as the Alienware X51.

    Parts:
    • INTEL I5-3570K
    • PALIT GTX560 TI
    • ASRock Z77E-ITX
    • Corsair Vengeance Black 8GB (2x4GB)
    • SSD Corsair Force 3 60GB
    • WD Caviar Black 1TB
    • Silverstone 450w sfx

    Some Sketchup models of it:

    Love the idea, can't wait to see the updates. Will the cube ever threaten to stab people?
