    Dell sold out of its $10,000 Quad SLI Renegade PCs in three days, apparently only a "very limited" quantity available. Dell hasn't announced if it will release similar high-end products in the future, but if you still want a Renegade, you can head on over to Dell's website and enter in a drawing for the last two systems.

    Yeah that is redicules, I mean are those things really worth that much money, i bet u could build that same comp for like 6K. But it would not have that crazy paint job.

    Well a couple things make it not a complete waste of money. If you have the dough and you want a quad SLI system, youll have to buy from a large OEM like dell. The paintjob is nice too. :) They can actually overclock btw.

    yeah $10000 is about $5000 over what you would spend building it yourself. Plus I personally don't even like the flames, I'm more into the blue computers myself.

    Plus, the MOST horrible part (not from Dell, it's an awesome system), is just the fact that in less than a year all those 7900GTX's will be out-of-date because of DirectX 10 and SM4.0. That's HORRIBLE for the Renegade owners, I'd be so pissed off, I mean you think you got a top-of-the-line system that'll take any game on full specs for at least 5 years and BOOM, here comes new software.

    You would be better off buying a $1,000 computer once a year for 10 years than buying that comp. Comp hardware gets outdated so fast..

    I bet a $1,000 PC built in 2 years time could probably give this a run for its money, if not outperform it.

    Personally I like whats inside, although I could never afford it. I don't care for the artwork, but the article does say it was handpainted by Mike Lavalle, and automotive artist.
