Dude, you're getting a $10k Dell

When I think of a gaming PC, I think of maybe an Athlon FX-60 processor with two top of the line graphics cards running in SLI or CrossFire mode. Never would I imagine, however, that I would plunk down $10,000 -- not far from the base price of a 2007 Toyota Yaris.

Excess is best at Dell with its new XPS 600 Renegade. This limited edition, custom-painted monster comes equipped with an Intel Pentium 965 Extreme Edition processor overclocked to 4.26GHz. In addtion, it features two 10,000RPM 160GB Raptor hard drives in a RAID-0 configuration plus an additional 7,200RPM 400GB hard drive. Also included is a Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card with front-side controller and 2GB DDR2 667 memory. To top things off, the XPS 600 comes paired with four GeForce 7900 graphics cards running in Quad-SLI.

With all of that processing power, the XPS takes full advantage of AGEIA PhysX processing and can run applications at up to 2,560 x 1,600. By the way, you can enjoy all of this goodness on the included Dell 3007WFP 30-inch widescreen flat panel monitor.

If all of this sounds enticing to you, the XPS 600 will be available in limited quantities for $9,930.

Not tooo bad

As a media center in my NYC apartment, I could use this as my main TV, Tivo, music center, telephone (VoIP), and gaming rig. Come to think about it this isn't to bad of a price for something that fulfills all my needs, electronic wise, in my entire small apartment. Though, yes I could build it for less, consumers could get better quality music players but we still buy Ipods. We could buy more efficient vehicles but Hummers are still selling. If I was a rock star this would be first on my list of new things to buy. I bet they sell out if they do the right marketing.

This box, even with quad SLI and an OC'd EE processor, will never come close to 1200W. No worries about your AC circuit there!

You fell for his bait. Samus is clearly a troll.
