Game

The HP OMEN X 900-105na Gaming PC is part of our Gaming range, which features the most powerful PCs available today. It has superior graphics and processing performance to suit the most demanding gamer.

VR compatible

The OMEN X Gaming PC is ready for the most intensive VR gaming thanks to dual GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, with everything you'll need to jump straight into the latest PC games like Resident Evil 7 or Mass Effect: Andromeda.

The overclocked Intel® Core™ i5 processor and 16 GB memory means the OMEN X has all the power you need to run demanding titles.

Versatile connectivity

Set up multiple displays using the DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort options, perfect for connecting your gaming monitors.

There's also plenty of space for your mouse, keyboard, controller and much more with ten USB ports.

Expand your gaming setup

In addition to adaptive LED lighting, the galvanised steel case has plenty of upgrade options. There's an external storage bay, so you can simply add to your PC as you go. And with tool-free entry, you won't need to dig out the screwdriver to add new components to your PC.

Integrated cooling

The powerful components in this OMEN X require serious cooling, so this PC combines liquid cooling and a tri-chamber design to keep it from overheating, even during marathon sessions.

Microsoft Office and Internet security

This PC doesn't come with a full version of Microsoft Office or Internet Security. But don't worry, you'll find great savings on software with the bundles available on the ‘Top Deals' tab on this page

This is a bargain, considering the cost of the 1080s alone

I would only buy this if you plan on removing the i5 and replacing it with an i7 7700K minimum, as you will bottleneck the 1080's immediately. Unless you plan on playing GPU intensive games at 4K or super wide triple screens.

The two 1080's in SLI seems a bit OTT in this set up. Also a review of a different model doesn't seem too keen on the included PSU.

I've been checking this one but the processor puts me off. Great price otherwise. I just don't trust currys else I'd be counting my penny box(embarrassed)

Oh and apparently it uses a microATX board, worth considering for upgradability though as it is now it should last a fair while

I think I am going to splash for it and do some upgrades over time. I only want it for Oculus Rift and the case.

Processor in contrast to the 1080 sli makes me uncomfortable. Needs an i7 at LEAST

i7 at least?

I am curious. If it is an i7 at least...what are you recommending?

The CPU would bottleneck the GPUs. Would not recommend.

Not saying I agree with him, but he may be refering to an i9.

I meant a lower end i7 at least.

Even accounting for the i5, this looks good value for money, no?

Out of stock

A beast of a machine.

Will it run pacman ok.

yeah, I'd say so. Though I'd stick with 'good' rather than 'great'.
The 2 x 1080 would be £900, and the PSU itself would be approx £150 to £200 to buy, to get a fancy case like that would be £100+ (probably even £150+), add on the board, CPU, memory and SSD (keep in mind no HDD for bulk storage).
However, unless you plan on replacing the CPU with an i7 then the GPUs are unlikely to be fully utilised.

It would seem far more feasible to have a single 1080ti than SLI 1080s - many games not sli compatible, g sync not great with sli...

And don't get me started on the processor...

Saw this debate online and it's a bit of a myth that many games are not SLI. Several prominent blogger and game youtubers run SLI set ups and they have a long list of games.

Processor upgeadeable but most games don't make use of i7 anyway.
