MSI has brought out his nBOX, the names sounds a lot like XBOX but it is not a game console. The NBOX is a GeForce FX 5900 ULTRA with 256MB RAM from MSI bundled with 3 new and popular games instead of some old and mostly less popular games and it also includes an aluminum optical mouse.
The game bundle excists out of Battlefield 1942 , Command & Conquer Generals and Unreal II. nBOX versions of the GeForce FX 5900 / 5600 Ultra will also come soon. And the nBOX version of the GeForce FX 5600 / 5200 should also come soon but will not include Command & Conquer: Generals.
Akiba spotted these in Japan for 76800 Yen which is about 640USD. Surely not cheap if you know that most GeForce FX 5900 ULTRA's over at Newegg
cost between $448 and $499. About $200 extra for three games and a MSI mouse is a lot of money, so lets just think this is some sort of collectors item for the extreme MSI fans.
