  • Intel Quadcore 9770
  • Intel Bonetrail Motherboard
  • 2 BFG GeForce 280 GTX’s

Our engineers worked with industry experts not only to bring a HTPC media center , but to deliver a finished best-of-breed solution that was a real finished product. And Linkin Park’s media center is precisely what this Home Theater system is. Finished. “For those that want the ultimate customizable Home Theater system, Smoothcreations is the way to go”, Denny Liu, G.Skill Product Manager.

20k for a computer with a Linkin Park logo? Why not a good artist or nothing at all? HTPC's don't need to be all that powerful anyway.. My Phenom 9500 and HD 4550 are amazing for blu ray play back..

A media center my ass, thats a full gaming rig that can watch movies too..

there two different things if you ask me a gaming pc and a HTPC (media center)

a normal person could build a HTPC for $600 or so and thats with hdmi and a decent sond card

Well, what can I say? 1337 for the Elite?

Nice speakers though.

nice speakers, but I'd rather not waste money on 10TB and a 'custom' design (to me, custom implies that only I would have it and know how to make it - not have some guy do me something that could technically be reproduced)

Considering what all is in it, Id expect about 11 to 12 grand of that is for the tv and speakers. The rest of the 8 or 9 grand is pc. Well Ill take that back, 10 TBs of HDD from WD with some probably being Velociraptors its pretty expensive.

Well it does advertise itself as a gaming and multimedia system thingy. Although I hate when products come with a sponsor on it.

I was just about to say something about that. People are complaining about the price, but they don't realize how much those speakers actually cost.

Bonetrail is X38/X48.

That's another thing that just dawned on me, this is running SLI on an Intel board.

Can someone please buy this and send me the drivers to try? I want SLI too....

I managed to find them here. Wonder if they will work ? http://www.slizone.com/page/slizone_downloads.html

Sorry - they are Skulltrail drivers, not bonetrail. Darn
