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 to pick, but I was assuming Dell would use their "enhanced multimedia" keyboard. That's why I had the price a little higher. I actually have one of these and love it. Dell shipped me about 5 of them by mistake (dumbasses), and I pulled one for personal use. Gave one to my brother, he loves it as well.

Actually, that was one of the numbers I realized I screwed up on when I looked at the picture. It's not a dell keyboard at all but rather a Saitek Eclipse along with a Logitech G5 Laser mouse. So that price should go up to around $60-80 rather than $25. Although I have seen G5's go for $22 and Eclipse keyboards go for $20 which would match your $45 price target but then those are really good sales.
