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.

granted it is overpriced compared to "building it yourself" if you could since quad sli cards are not easy to get .


you guys hvae priced it at 4 x 500 for 4 7900s but realistically if anyone could buy a dual 7900 card right now they'd probably go for more like $1300.

so thats $2600 in cards. not to mention win XP license and other software, better warranties than say building this yourself, support, boxes, manuals etc.

they are still probably making quite a bit, but i honestly think this is actually BETTER than the absolute rapage say falcoln northwest or something would charge for a similarly exclusive machine.

anyhow, its still ridiculous that anyone would spend $10000 on a computer.

Then again i have a friend working for a company that makes high end home theater remotes for $800 a piece. there are rich people out there that buy crap like that .
