MUCH. Not to mention, I can get a look and performance that I want. Most of our current systems are Dell Optiplex (various versions and vintages). None of them have the horsepower that these do ... even before they get water cooled and overclocked. Short of doing some some $2000 to $2500 rig from Alienware, I doubt Dell or HP have anything that could approach them, especially for a "clean business" look. At $1082.17 each (including tax but not taking into account a couple hundred in rebates), I think they are a steal.
Granted, none of them have video cards, but for the immediate use, they don't need them (well, I am going to pull the GTX 560Ti from "Slave Driver" and drop it in one of the 3770K's and put that on my desk. Someone else can "suffer" with only a 4.4GHz 2500K system at work.
