This really reminds me of how much of a ripoff manufactured gaming PCs are.

Sure, Falcon Northwest will literally give you a Ferrari level paint job for you chassis, but adding on an additional $4000 just to have your box look cool when in the end it'll sit and collect dust and scratches over the year? It's almost pure madness.

Even before the additional 4K for the paintjob, the 'high end gaming PC' was running that guy around Three thousand. That's still absurd.

Build it yourself, have the highest of high end components, acquire savings, discuss.

Nothing excites me more than ordering a new PC component and bencmarking and overclocking it to see how well I spent my money.

Anyway, to each their own. Some people buy a Subaru, some buy a Porsche. The only problem with building or buying a high end pc, is that most users(at home) will never reach it's full potential. Bragging rights is about all it's worth.. like a Porsche. Seriously, how often do you go 200+ mph?
