Origin PC is looking to get a leg up on other boutique system builders with a series of free upgrades on select systems. Normally we don't post this kind of stuff, in part because we know you don't come here to read about sales, but when a company offers a free upgrade to a second Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 videocard, well, we make an exception.
The 'Buy One Nvidia 580 & Get One Free' is one of several weekend specials Origin PC is offering, and to us it's the most exciting one. It applies to the company's Genesis and Millennium desktop systems, and not only is the second GTX 580 card a free upgrade, it's actually cheaper than going with a single GTX 580. A single 580 adds $493 to the Millenium's base price ($1,234), but the Black Friday option adds two 580 cards for $409. That's a pretty sweet deal. On the Genesis system, it's $409 for a single card or for dual cards.
On Eon17 and Eon17-S laptops, Origin is offering a free upgrade from a 250GB hard drive to a 120GB SSD along with free videocard overclocking. And on the Eon15-S, Origin PC will quadruple the amount of RAM from 4GB to 16GB at no charge.
All of the above mentioned systems also come with Batman Arkham City, while the Genesis and Millennium rigs also ship with Battlefield 3 for no additional charge. If any of these sound like good deals, you have to decide fast because the Black Friday sale goes through today only.
