    Digital Storm, the predominant name in computer system integration and engineering, proudly announces the flagship system in its award-winning line of ODE gaming computers – ODE Level 4. This new system takes the pre-built and fully customized concept to the next level by integrating Intel’s X79 chipset, Core i7 3930K six-core CPU, and overclocking it to 4.6GHz. ODE Level 4 gaming PCs are packed with lightning fast components that have been optimized to deliver unparalleled performance, while not breaking the bank.

    Based on Intel’s X79 chipset, ODE Level 4 boasts blazing fast speed that creates unrivalled gameplay.

    I still fail to see the added value of a prebuilt system, and I can't help but wonder if the selected components are worth anything near that price.

    Certainly not worth that much without the $ 999 model of SB-E , they are using the $ 599 model and still charging this price :/

    $600 worth of processor and around $1100-$1200 does not justify this price tag at all based on the rest of the components...

    I would never buy one, but to be honest this is not really that over-priced. The same specs at Newegg run you right at $3000, so basically they charge $400 to assemble and overclock the machine for you, and then offer Life Time Support with a 3 year warranty. If you have the money, and don't know what you are doing when it comes to building/overclocking, this is not that bad of a deal.

    assuming they bought their stock from newegg, which they don't i'm sure. they get the prices newegg gets, or similar - so their profit is higher than $400.

    still, if the end user can't get the parts at the same price it's kind of a moot point.

    Exactly - who cares how much profit they're making if they're the cheapest you can get what you want - that being this system prebuilt with a decent overclock and 3 years of support, or whatever else they offer.

    That said, I don't know that 570 tri-sli is a very clever solution. 1.25GB of VRAM is not enough for any kind of task that'd justify that level of graphics processing power. A pair of 2.5GB 570s would be cheaper and more desirable - yes, the tri-sli will outperform it, but only in situations where the difference is between 90 and 110 FPS, not where the difference is between 15 and 25.
