    the photography is great, and the design is unique, but its not for everyone...

    for one it's too big... Lots of empty space, cooling is meh, one HDD and one DVD...

    Its a bit like an apple in the sense that it compromises too much functionality for design.

    I like it, but would look much better with a single sleeve instead of each individual cable.

    yes it's too big
    yes the mobo is craptacular
    but I like the individual sleeving, don't know if it would look good with a single fat sleeve?
    I think it's the aesthetics that count here

    Let me just say that a lot of time must have gone into that. Too much for me to even imagine me putting into it lol
    I also agree, motherboard should be switched, but it does go with his design.
    Very swell I must say.

    Great build, but for $1000000 I want it to work under water, in outerspace, in the jungle of South America, and be able to make me coffee.

    Where's the integrated 21" LCD?

    LOL! doesn't mean it cost $1,000,000 to build, just worth a mil to someone or some people
    but true for a $mil I want space thrusters and hologram display technology and a lap dancer and a Ferrari thrown in!

    :roll: Taking the name a bit too literally there... It means that the rig is so beautiful that it's priceless... Frankly I think the site is more of a photography site than an actual tech display... our case mod gallery has a few rigs that would blow some of those million dollar builds out of the water.

    Has it sold any? You can't call it a "million dollar PC" if you can only get like $5000 for it. I find it hard to believe that anyone that earned their multi-millions would be stupid enough to waste it on that computer.

    Very creative and nicely done. I wouldn't want one, but that does not mean I can't appreciate someone else's hard work and effort. :toast:

    I dont like the color scheme. But it is original and clever in many ways.

    Looks pretty sweet. Would look a lot sweet if the tower part was black. The white kinda throws everything off for me.

    I think it's sporting dual GTX cards. I've seen those heat spreaders before, but they just painted them... They're held by thermal tape, good thermal tape, but thermal tape. The cooling wouldn't hold up if overclocked, and 1 HDD??? No SDD? I hope they at least put in a BRay drive, but I doubt it given the system cost less than $1500 to make. I guess someone's time spent making a really ugly case can be considered the rest of the million dollar look.

    A pc should be practical not pretty,its about funtionality not form.Some of these fancy pc's are like art,its in the eye of the creator.

    In your opinion... most people in the world use their comps just to send emails and could care less what it looks like however some people value paint jobs, some exotic materials etc...

    for some of us the computer is a way for us to be creative and show/make use of our skills.

    (personally I am happy with Logitech speakers but you dont see me saying "Audigy4 digi out to sony av amp/mordaunt short spkrs" is a waste of $$.)
