The HP Firebird with VoodooDNA is a high performance gaming PC and is the successor to HP's Blackbird 002.  The Firebird with VoodooDNA comes in two models - the 802 PC and the more advanced 803 PC.  Both systems feature an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor, 4GB of DDR2 memory and dual NVIDIA GeForce 9800S graphics cards in SLI configuration for intense HD graphics.  They also include dual hot-swappable hard drives, 250GB each in the 802 PC and 320 GB each in the 803 PC, and a variety of ports including an HDMI port for connection to an HDTV.  The 803 PC offers additional performance features such as a slot-loading Blu-ray player, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and a Creative Labs audio card which the 802 PC model lacks.  Like the Blackbird 002, the Firebird is designed with an aluminum case and a Voodoo factory-sealed liquid cooling system to keep the system quiet.  The system comes with an HP wireless optical mouse and low-profile keyboard and has a 1 year limited warranty.
