These elegant PCs will feature exclusive Battlefield 4 aesthetics including artwork that is illustrated on the side panel of the SHIFT and laser etched on the F131. The SHIFT will include subtle touches of the iconic Battlefield 4 orange color on the exterior and interior and the MAINGEAR logo on the front panel on the F131 will have an orange glow.

Aye, but you do get support, which supposedly is pretty decent, and stress testing. It's not the same market really.

There are people that consider their time as being more valuable than a small fortune.

I want to SLI my GTX 670 or get either a R 290X or R 290. I likes to buy new somewhat shiny stuff

So, what is the spec of each machine to make the single card to crossfire option a $1600 difference?

Good, then although you can afford it, sadly you don't have time to play. On the other hand, since the "cheaper" machine sports a $200 CPU, a mechanical HDD and presumably a $650 video card the rest of the value up to $2200 is made up mostly of the cost of the "Official Battlefield™ 4 Laser Etching".
