    Teaming up with multiple system builders, NVIDIA has today launched GeForce GTX Battlebox, a program which is claimed to deliver a 'new breed of gaming machine', one capable of playing this year's hottest PC titles at 'super high resolutions, at high settings and with every NVIDIA-exclusive feature enabled'.

    Offered by the likes of MAINGEAR, Origin, Digital Storm, CyberPowerPC, Scan Computers and others, a system bearing the GeForce GTX Battlebox seal of approval will feature overclocked Intel Haswell Core i5/i7 CPUs, advanced cooling systems, high quantities of fast RAM, speedy SSDs, and two or three GeForce GTX 780 cards in SLI. To complete the package, the system builders will also offer 4K monitors (like the 31.5-inch ASUS PQ321Q) at the point of sale.

    For more information about GeForce GTX Battlebox see this page.

    It's not hard to build such systems. You just go to a shop and say to them: "Give me all the most expensive components." There you go.

    You tell your boss "Can I has a Battlebox? It will improve my productivity 9001x". Boss calls tech, tech Googles and (hopefully) buys you one.

    Well,.......

    Two or three GeForce GTX 780 cards in SLI and 4K monitors (such as the 31.5-inch ASUS PQ321Q) won't come cheap no matter what,....

    I didn't see any pricing listed either way though so no telling what the markup is,....

    No, that's just the cost of the 4K monitor.
