As far as those parts go, paying anything over $1400 you got ripped off. How dell is charging $2500 for it i don't know, you would have to be smoking some pretty strong stuff to pay anything near that.

Thats around $1700 in parts so the deal you got isn't bad, but if you paid much more then what you paid you would have just got them at a normal price. They can keep their keyboard and mouse, they don't look that good to me anyways.

You forgot the DUAL graphics cards, 32GB RAM, and soundcard, plus the computer case and PSU wink.gif

nope, i was pricing the "deal" he got, not all the extra stuff he already had. I priced the case at $150 and its in the list, as well as the 16gb set of ram that was included in the deal.

Yep.

Wondering if OP is comparing the computer he bought + his parts on dells website, or just the computer on its own... I am not seeing where the 3K whatever cost is coming from, I am guessing he used his "after" specs, with all the ram and 2x gpus.

In which case, he might still want to take a look at the amount he spent on those parts too. I used a lot of old parts from my last build, but I can't just ignore their cost - I still paid for them... and, well... You can see my sig and the cost listed. Some of the things I have on there I did not pay MSRP for, namely the monitors. When they came out they were something like $230 each, I paid 200 for the third one (a month or so ago, supply and demand you know) and roughly $130 each for the first two over a year ago. Retail would put just my monitors at nearly $700 alone... money which I most certainly paid myself.

My system will walk all over that thing in the graphics department, and the cpu will come close assuming my OC vs his at stock settings. The cpu is great of course, but will OP ever put it to use compared to something much cheaper, like my 3770k? Maybe...

I am wondering what his total investment is there, seeing as just another 200 bucks would give me the audio card and full 32GB of ram - and the SSD isn't going to be doing me much of a favor for anything other than my patience.

This thread is very misleading. All of the components listed in the OP would be a stellar deal for the price listed. HOWEVER, that is a list put together with parts from the build he's getting plus the parts that he's using to upgrade. When you factor that in, the deal isn't as good as we were led to believe it was.

OP Changed. Someone wanted to see the price with upgrades so I changed it. Now I have changed it back once again. Can't please everyone. This thread was not posted for people to start talking trash about how their system could walk all over mine, or if I am going to use my CPU to it's full advantage or yada yada yada. I simply posted this thread to share the system I bought.
