    Compared to ther sh*t you see, this one looks good for the price since its guaranteed 4ghz (I've seen other pc's that barely hit the $500 mark sold for +$1000 which advertised 10ghz on the cpu because it had 4 cores, wtf?) But then again, I guess it would cost less if it were you who were building it. Someone would have to do the maths, I'm feeling lazy! But personally I tend to stay away from pre builts, it saps the fun of researching, buying and putting it up together I guess.

    HOLY F*CK! Its only now that I see that its in GBP, now thats another story!

    Could be built for less. They have to make a profit somewhere.

    As 'unique' as that case is, i'd much rather spend alot less on something more practical.

    And, ontop of that, it's from OcUK... lol.

    Conclusion: No, it's not worth it.

    No! It is not worth that much. The case a lone is like 800.00. That is where most of the cost comes from. It's a very nice looking case and all, but $800?? Really?

    It does have one of the best SSD's that are over $400.
    The 5970 is of course excellent.
    The ram is a little lacking.

    Probably right around $2,000 usd in parts excluding the case.

    It could be built for lesser. The 5970 and the Level10 Case is what makes it so expensive.

    it costs £2018 if the parts are bought separately from the same place. so i guess its worth it as far as ready built goes.

    That is one sexy pc case but gawd! For that money one could buy a TJ07 with a Boreas already installed.

    Still £300 is a lot. I'd build it on my own. But if your in-experienced in building PCs, I think its ok or else it's not worth.

    The computer is worth about £1,000 GBP.

    Overclockers have never been good for deals.
