For all that you're getting I'd say that price is not bad. Problem is who needs all that power? --- Xbox Live GT:ScaryPillow , iHaruyuki TERA: LoL : ScaryPillow Maplestory: MLGLordly 16x I/L Arch Mage

They're definitely charging too much for that. Build your own. It's so much better and cheaper. --- Intel i5 4670K | Corsair 16GB DDR3 | Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB | ASUS 27" 1440p Corsair 480GB SSD | WD 4TB HDD | Fractal Design R4 | Corsair 750MX | Win7Ult 64

For the exact same specs? Ummm, no? Can you do something better using different hardware? Probably. The price is fine though... $3200 for all those parts is accurate.
CPU 300 Motherboard 175 CPU cooler ( not sure, guessing ) 100 Memory 150 SSD 175 HD 100 Video cards 1500 Case 150 PSU 200 Windows 75
$2925, and it could go up and down for price. The video cards were actually around $1600, but I assume you can get a good price here and there for parts. So maybe around $200 mark up on a system that costs $3000 to build isn't asking much... I used to work at Fry's, if you buy all your parts and ask the tech guys to build it for you, it is $100 labor. I would assume a company that does all this for you and has a warranty can charge at least $200. Also doesn't include any extras like all that lightning junk thrown in, not sure how much the CPU cooler is, could be more. --- You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

7990 is the last card I'd put on PCI-e 2.0 --- http://i.imgur.com/hOjV6w3.jpg

My bet is the CPU isn't fast enough to leverage the need for PCI-e 3.0 --- http://i.imgur.com/hOjV6w3.jpg
