Yeah, I recently priced a very high end system to build and it would have cost me about $2000 or slightly more to build myself. (4GB ram, Velociraptor hd, 9800GX2 (just for the high end pricing), Intel 9450 cpu, Antec 1200 case, Auzentech Prelude soundcard, some $300 mobo). That was all through Newegg without watching for sales. Pricing would be slightly higher if you need an OS and a PSU (I have a PSU on hand). So for $2500 for sure, you could build probably a better system besides their kick ass case.

Cheapest config you can get is just over $2k...not that bad if all your buying is the case and want to sell the rest
