The artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg who recently renamed himself Snoop Lion (we prefer to acknowledge him as the Dee Oh Double Gee from the L-B-C) is a PC gamer, though he doesn't roll his own rigs. There's nothing at all wrong with the latter, especially when your dealer is Maingear , a boutique builder that uses only the finest ingredients and never laces its high grade gaming machines with crapware, bloatware, and other unsavory substances.
Snoop Dogg was spotted a few months back smoking foes with Maingear CEO Wallace Santos, the two together putting the then-new Potenza through its paces by blazing through rounds of Battlefield 3 in 3D. For himself, Snoop Dogg purchased a custom F-131 desktop from Maingear that was loaded with an Intel Core i7 processor, GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, and other hardware. He also picked out an Asus 27-inch monitor with Nvidia 3D Vision 2 glasses.
Celebrity PC gamers are anything but rare. According to Bright Side of News , other celebrities who indulge in PC gaming include Chuck Norris (game over, console fans -- PC gamers win), Cameron Diaz, Robin Williams, Brandon Routh, Tom Cruise, and Daniel Craig, to name a handful.
Before the inevitable " This story is old! " comments come rolling in, understand we're aware of that, we missed covering it this summer, we feel terrible about it, and thought you should know. Oh, and for you die-hard console gamers, we're willing to acknowledge celebrities play on those too -- see above. Everyone happy?
