Posted by Shane McGlaun

Maingear has introduced a slick new all-in-one PC dubbed the Alpha 24 Super Stock.

"ALPHA 24 and can be summed up with just a few words: 1080p gaming set to Ultra, maxed anti-aliasing and tessellation," said Maingear CEO Wallace Santos.

According to Santos, the Alpha 24 series offers desktop level performance, boasting specs and options most commonly associated with high-performance desktop gaming machines - rather than your typical AIO form factor machine.

The Alpha 24 offers a wide variety of processor options, with choices ranging from an Intel Core i3 3240 running at 3.4 GHz all the way up to an Intel Core i7 3770K running at 3.5 GHz with 8 MB of L3 cache. All the Alpha machines are equipped with a Gigabyte mainboard and are loaded with either 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM.

The AIO supports up to 3 TB of mechanical HDD storage and up to 256 GB of SSD storage. Video options are quite flexible and include the GeForce GTX 650, 660, 660 Ti, 670 and 680 GPUs.

The machine - designed to run Windows 7 - can be easily upgraded to Windows 8 and includes a pair of mini PCIe expansion slots along with a single PCIe x16 slot.

Additional specs? A TV tuner card, integrated Wi-Fi, a DVD burner (Blu-ray optional), a 1920 x 1080 glossy touchscreen and an HDMI in - allowing a cable box, XBOX 360, PS3, or other device to take advantage of its full HD display.

The Alpha 24 Super Stock starts at a base of $1349 and increases in price depending on how tricked out you want your AIO rig.
