    Time spent...

    You forget that they include time spent on putting it together, running stability tests and passing quality control before shipping it to you. I know most of us don't like how expensive things are but we need to think twice before we start screaming "bloody thieves!"

    so for nearly $3000 I get:
    1) an i5
    2) no ssd
    3) ancient 500gb harddrive
    4) average 650w psu that supposedly will be pushing 2x gtx780
    5) fairly inexpensive mobo
    6) useless dvd drive that nobody uses
    7) windows 7 HOME edition? srsly?

    no thanks, I'll build my own PC that shits all over this for half the price.

    Not sure about you but it doesn't take more than an hour of my time to piece together the PC and install the software at stock settings which is what the base machine would be running at. Yes, the software takes longer than an hour to install but who sits in front of the PC when it is installing:banghead:? So no, that hour of time saved isn't worth $600-1000 to me.

    I totally agree with you. It doesn't take us that long but it probably does to them. The last thing they would want is to ship a system that is not stable and not configured properly. I am not defending the price I am simply stating that they take their time to make sure they sell you something that was done right. The price could be a bit cheaper but you know how the so called "boutique" builder market their products!

    So, about $3,000 for a computer and another $3,500 for the monitor.

    Oh yeah, this all makes perfect sense. Going to sell like hotcakes.

    I really don't understand all this 4k talk at this point. Who can afford this stuff?

    The price of 4k will drop and quickly. You can buy a 40" seiki for 600. Kinda makes that asus one laughable.

    Really. They will drop quickly?

    Just like 2560x1600 have dropped so dramatically over the last 10 years?

    I also bought a QNIX 2710 for 300. You made my point for not getting a 4k.

    It's a 1440p, not a 4k. And while defending 4k, you actually made the better choice.

    Reviews I've read say that current 4k monitors are limited to 30Mhz, and of course require mutliple cards to work well. Not the mention the kludgey multi-monitor configuration.

    1440p at 27" has plenty of pixel density, does not require multiple cards, and can do 60Mhz or better.

    While prices may be dropping quicker than in the past, I don't expect quality 4k monitors to be affordable for a couple of years.

    I am not making a point here. 4k has already dropped drastically in price since launch, while still expensive will keep dropping. Why? It's too expensive, simple. Most people will still be buying 1080p screens for sometime. With all these options(Foreign) it's pretty easy for someone to get their hands on one. Yes as of right now 30hz and 60hz are the only possible refresh. Soon though however I believe a Qnix type variant will come and it will be cheap.

    You forget the two most important differences.. Complete system warranty and tech support. Now for me that's not worth an extra $500 to 1k but for the system price $200 - $300 wouldn't be unreasonable.

    At least their computer will boot up and work properly. Yours won't even POST because you didn't include any RAM. :)

    The R9 290X is going to be a monster at higher resolutions, so naturally Nvidia is getting their last 4K marketing in before AMD unleash their 4K marketing LOL :roll:
