Your also getting the ability to send **** back if it breaks any time in a year, which isn't always the case with parts you just buy off the shelf. Sure, there is RMA but that can take a long time (took my friend 3 weeks to get his 9800Pro back from ASUS). Dell gets stuff to you in 1 business day. The bottom line is, your not just buying a computer.

If, however, you want to buy a computer and only a computer, get the parts and do it. But don't piss and moan about how screwed people are getting because you don't want the support or ease of having a computer built by someone else.

1. Sending it back to Dell IS RMAing it and will take time. Their not going to drop everything just to replace your stuff in 1 day.
2. you're not just buying a computer you're BUYING the name on it Dell.
3. Remember this when you leave one store because you can buy something CHEAPER at another store.
4, IF you build it yourself you have the sense of accomplishment after its done and not I did a great job of entering in my credit card number.
5.If you have something break you HAVE to send the entire case back to Dell,IF you build it your self you just send back the bad part and if you have a spare then you can still run until you get your RMA back.

I just bought 2 of these machines, along with AOL, Windows ME and a big pile of Dog Poo that I can use as a chair. My personal feeling is that I will now be so l33t that I can say hey I wasted 9k on a overpriced PC right before Directx10 came out in a system that wont even allow me to do AA over HDR which is speculated to be important in the future. To tell u the truth I am now going to tatoo the words Ub3r l33t on my forehead.

Honestly for this price.

You can build your own Server, a top of the line PC with 1900XTX or 7900GTX In dual config, with FX-60's 4 Gigs of RAM and a 72in 1080p BIG SCREEN TV that you can use as a monitor. Then you can have enough money to send our Halmark cards to all the idiots who buy this PC letting them know that they are silly for buying this POS.

Yea...anyone who buys this is crazy like Greatness said you could buy a fricking huge big screen tv and could also build 2 comps for the price. That is cool how it has the physic card though, but anyone who pays 9k for a comp is spoiled/insane. You will be surpirsed though how many people do buy it.

Ya, for 9 grand, I'd rather get a $4500 PC and a $4500 ridiculous 1080p TV. Dell makes decent stuff and this probably will sell like hotcakes, but realistically its just dumb. Even if I knew very little about computers I would rather get PC in the setup above from Alienware or something like that. AND no DX10. Waste of cash, thats only a couple grand short of a cheap NEW CAR.

Some people have no understanding of what a paint job like this can be worth in 100 years for antiquities value. They think in the short term, are the antithesis of old money wealth and are just not able to make that transition between value and price. It is also why they are where they are and the old money wealthy are they are. They are born into a different valuation and thinking and are taught this value driven method of accumulation for long-term outlooks.

The people who buy the first releases of these computers might well never even use them. They purchase for the long-term valuation of a product. Just as many Mercedes of the first year and model manufacturing never see the road commercially, these might not either.

For 10k that thing better fly (literly fly).... and come with a magical revolving refrigrator...

There is a sweapstake to win one of these things on the Dell website....

Featuring a ground breaking Quad NVIDIA® SLI™ graphics card featuring four GeForce® 7900 GPUs, and the Intel Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition 965 processor over-clocked up to 4.26Ghz designed to boost your system's performance while multitasking and running demanding multi-threaded applications and so much more. Plus, the XPS™ 600 Renegade™ is custom painted by Mike Lavallee of Killer Paint and signed by Mike Lavallee and Michael Dell. Comes complete with a 30-inch widescreen, award winning monitor that boasts fast response time, high contrast ratio and ultra-high resolution.
Considering you can't get the 965EE, quad SLI, and a 30" moniter, thats not a bad deal!

Wow... A physics accelerator... I bet in a year or two physics accelerators will be as big as Video cards...

Question and honestly I dont mean any offence to your statement?

Would you spend 5k for someone to paint your computer? If you had 10k laying around in 20 years would you buy a computer that couldnt support the last 2 OS that came out because it had a really nice paint job? The reasoning behind what your saying I can understand for something like a mercades which does gain value over time but computers dont, there isnt a P1 or a 486 PC that I would pay more than 1 dollar for out there. Unless it was like the first model ever made in the history of man than I dont see any reason for a Paint job on a PC to be worth a crap. Other compaines do custom paint jobs so its not like they are the only company ever. Sorry but it didnt make sence for a paint job to up the value that much on a PC.
