    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.
