    It's actually not a bad price. I added everything together on the Egg and it came to about $2700 minus the case, dvd player, water cooling and Win8

    Then you failed. I can build a system that can play any game on max settings @ 1080p for a hell of alot less than $3500. 32GIGS OF ram? A GTX 690? BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK? ROFLMAO

    System builders need to have their margin (Its their business we keep forgetting). I think anyone who wants to build a destroyer kind of system but doesn't know how to, should look into this.
    Like other OP said, everything combined on Newegg came to around $2700 - so adding some margin and labor cost - this system is i think not bad.

    I think anyone who wants a system like this but doesn't have the expertise to build a computer definitely shouldn't be using liquid cooling IMHO (excluding closed loop coolers, like the H80,) but that is just me. I bet you most users who will consider this won't know how to perform maintenance on a liquid loop or the fact that you actually have to occasionally clean out your PC. Too much can go wrong with someone who has no idea what they're doing.

    "Oh my god, my PC is spewing liquid all over my motherboard, PSU, and video cards! Ahhhh!"

    Correct, but companies think in a different fashion. - Water cooling means maintenance = Support = Money :pimp:

    I hope you are getting my drift, cause anyone who is investing this kind of money is not going to bother with the system any way, and would have an annual maintenance contract with the company in the first place.

Not everyone that has a Porsche can work on it or drive it to its full potential...but they still have a Porsche and its still nice... just like this rig. This is for the i cant build it but i can afford to buy it crowd

    What gets me is that it only offers a one year warranty standard whereas pretty much every component if purchased on its own comes with at least 3 years warranty.

    You guys shouldn't bash company's like this that are trying to offer gaming PC's at a fair price. PC gamers harp about console ports, but do nothing to make it better.. This is a great move for any console gamer that wants to come over to the pc, but doesn't know how to build one and wants the best for there money.. I would pick one of these systems over a DELL Alienware pc any day... Plus, people who buy these systems may try to build there next system and come here for help.. We all can't be so close minded.. Sure we can build pc's but these systems are not for us! But if we support fair priced systems then someone might see our approval and buy one. I'm sure if anyone called the company and gave them a budget they would meet that budget with in reason... :toast:

    Yeah, if I had to buy a PC I would buy it from these guys rather than Dell or HP or Alienware. If you want to talk about overpriced crap, please mention those companies first! At least with these you have an idea that you are getting quality components.

    I'm not bashing the company for offering a extreme gaming system. But to claim that build is "best bang for the buck" is crazy. Best bang for the buck would not have all the stuff that system has that really doesn't add to the actual gaming experience. A ssd doesn't make a comp actually run games better. A 3770k is overkill, same as 32 gigs of ram. While no doubt it's a extreme gaming system , there's no way I can agree with the bang for buck claim

    Best bang for the buck when it comes to Extreme gaming

    That being said, I am inclined to agree with you: a 690 is an enthusiast item that is well overpriced. 2x 680s or 2x 7970s would be more powerful, and cost less.

    yup. most of us agree that a "best bang for the buck" system would cost about $750 in parts and then charge $1200 or so for labor and crap. this should be labeled as an enthusiast system for knobs.

    I have to agree. Not to mention the use of the MVE over say, Mpower, or OCFormula, or to REALLY nail the bang for your buck, the Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 (or 6).

    Might aswell step up to Skt 2011 for that price- heck with this company.

    Why not the 680s in SLI and 7900s in Crossfire too?
