    Default Valve’s Steam Machine torn down

    Valve’s Steam Machine torn down, reveals expensive, well designed, easily up-gradable gaming PC

    Those dastardly devils at iFixit have managed to get their mitts on one of Valve’s 300 Steam Machine prototypes and, of course, torn it down. Inside is a quad-core Haswell Core i5-4570, a Zotac GTX 780 graphics card, 16GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport (PC3 12800) RAM, and a 1TB 5400 RPM Seagate hard drive. If you wanted to build your own SteamOS-powered doppelganger, it would set you back around $1300 to match Valve’s Steam Machine part-for-part.


    First and foremost, it’s good news if you want to repair or upgrade the Steam Machine: The entire thing opens up with the removal of a single Philips screw. Once the upper case is removed, it’s trivial to replace the hard drive. Remove a custom piece of plastic cowling and you then have access to the GTX 780 graphics card.

    this is what I have seen and heard but according to those specs above
    I don't believe it will come in this low.

    have to wait and see!

    The iBuyPower Steam Machine will be priced at US$499, according to The Verge. It will come standard with WiFi, Bluetooth and a 500-GB hard drive. It will have a multicore AMD CPU and discrete AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics.

    1. Buy Steam Machine
    2. Take Apart
    3. Build Gaming Rig
    4. Take steam machine back, saying "It won't turn on."
    5. Get a refund.
    6. Buy another Steam Machine
    7. Enjoy!
