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.

Logitech G5 mouse, $50.
Saitek Eclipse keyboard, $50.
Klipsch 5.1 Ultras, $400.
650W power supply, $200.
2x150W external power bricks, $100.

I'd value the custom paint job higher than $400, as well... I think you'd have to pay closer to $1000 for the case and the painting. I guess it depends whether you know a good, cheap artist.

All in all, I don't think it's a rip-off, EXCEPT for the [b]ONE YEAR[/b] warranty. Most of those components have manufacturer's warranty of 3+ years, but Dell OC's the crap out of the CPU and drops the whole warranty down to 1 year.

Pathetic, for a $10K system.

Bah, forgot this setup still uses HTML tags instead of BB.
