No way would i pay $7000 for that.

Core i7 980, GTX 580 SLi, 2 Corsair 60gb Raid O, Asus ROG Rampage II Mobo, Liquid cooled CPu, i stopped looking at specs right there cause that's not worth $7000 and you can do faster and cheaper

Core i7 2700K, GTX 580 SLi, 1 Corsair 120gb SSD, Asus Revolution mobo, liquid cooling, blah blah blah....

i just saved you about $750 swapping out CPu and MObo and the 2700K is faster than a 980!

Shoot just did a disagree ATi was meant to be a. Agree.

drosera11729d ago

Agreed, this computer is a rip-off. No-one needs 24GB of RAM either, not even if you're doing high-end renders. 12GB is more than enough. And it's a non Sandy-Bridge system, AT THAT PRICE! Please.

And its already out dated in 3,2,1 "Doh" lol.

I've Been buying Mid high-end stuff lately. It doesn't hurt as much when a month or two later Something way faster comes out. Like Buying a i5 2500k vs i7 2600k. The money saved is worth it. It's better to invest in a good video card setup, and save a few bucks.

Dude! Image #13 is the only reason why I'd spend that much on a PC!!!

ATi_Elite1729d ago

Image #13 was a picture of a DVD/CD combo drive. I checked 3 times to make sure what image 13 was.....DVD/CD burners are $20 bucks!

under the picture they say a Blu-ray Drive will set you back $180 which is total CRAP cause a quality Blu-ray burner is $99.

So please clarify what image you were talking about that would cause you to spend $7000 on a PC. I'm just curious as to what feature you really like about that PC......if it is a Burner then you must rip/burn movies a lot i take it.

Sheesh!

Do I really need to put "SARCASM" in flashing neon lights for that one?!?

You clearly care enough to comment.

GamersRulz1730d ago

all I wanted is trying to be funny, but seems like I failed miserably XD

caboose321730d ago

Oh snap, my bad. I thought you were just trying to be a jerk face.

zeal0us1730d ago

You can built one cheaper and still can play BF3 on some decent setting. If you got money to blow then by all means go ahead.

hiredhelp1730d ago (Edited 1730d ago )

7k jaw on floor powersupply unknown with crappy origin over the top. Even the corsair water cool isnt the top. For that price could easyly buy full water system.
Not even a gtx590 We. Still talking 7k here? WoW ive not read the specs just by going by the pictures i can see this is not worth 7k
VGA being most expensive in that system add the rest a rough total in my head be what 3k max ?? Very max

ATi_Elite1729d ago

for that price you could run dual GTX590's with water blocks on the CPU and both GPU's.

plus get a 30" monitor.

7K for that is certified wallet rape.

I have a computer at the house that i'll sell for 250k!
