And finally.....it looks like you're not getting a "rig" as in, "open a box and here's a working computer!" or even, "open a box and here's a computer ready to slap an OS onto!"

It looks like all you're getting is a bunch of parts at a cheaper than normal price. A good deal if you're looking for something like this, but not pre-built.....or even guaranteed to work, strangely enough

vote-for4vote-against

I know cases don't need to be fancy looking, but for that price I would have thought they would have thrown in something better.

I hope I'm not the only one that is tired of seeing graphic cards getting BIGGER. Motherboards are not getting bigger so installing a card that can cover 3-4 slots does not help me.

DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY!!!!
It is cheaper with everything spaced out.
The SSD is NOT 600$ its $300

Seagate is an AWFUL brand, I'm surprised they're not out of business. Here's a WD 2tb (like 140 cheaper)

Most people who would want this do not need the Windows 7 cd. There's another $100, and no one need 4hds and a SSD. Its 7tb. You at max would only need 4tb.

And thats JUST newegg prices. Anyone who want to buy this must have the knowledge to research better prices.

vote-for8vote-against

Meh. Or wait a year and buy this all for 50% less.

Buying top-of-the-line PC gear is never a deal for the individual consumer.

@tumorous: Everything except the graphics card(s). They're only making 1000 of those, iirc.

Two IT guys were walking across the park when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"The second IT guy replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, 'Take what you want.'The second IT guy nodded approvingly, "Good choice. The clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

An architect, an artist and an IT guy were discussing whether it was better to have a wife or a mistress.The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship.
The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there.The IT guy said, "I like both."
The artist said "BOTH?"The IT guy replied "Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the office and get some work done."

@worlddomnit

I think the SSD is listed as costing $600 because there are two of them included in the combo. [Note the 2 in parentheses at the end of that item's listing.] The same for the graphics card, etc.

vote-for3vote-against

@worlddomnit

Oh, and one might want more than 4TB of storage so s/he can set up a RAID.

vote-for3vote-against

@worlddomnit: Check the quantities before you panic, thats TWO drives, etc.

and there is nothing wrong with seagate. they have industry standard failure and performance rates.

vote-for1vote-against

and they didn't bother maxing out memory? Nice to see they left room for upgrading in the future >.<;;

vote-for1vote-against

It looks like you're buying a $6,000 kit with 6GB worth of memory? I feel like I'm missing the boat, somewhere...

vote-for0vote-against

@alcibiates: That says -2- 3x2 6GB memory. 6*2 = 12

Irony: As a California resident, I would have to pay tax on the RETAIL price of these items. That's about 700 dollars, so I'd basically be paying full price anyway.

@drwurm: And you'd still be a California resident, talk about a double whammy!

Does this run Rollercoaster Tycoon?

vote-for1vote-against

What would someone have to run to make this worth while? I mean, I'm sure its great for gaming, but it just seems like over- kill to the extreme... even FOR gaming... or maybe I'm just not needy enough.

vote-for2vote-against

newegg stuff are really expensive, trust me, their so called combo are just addon sales, check out meritline and other sites like frys, newegg is only good for reference as their website organize stuff by specification and has alot of photos, no other sites has it, I admit, but their prices are insanely ripoff, if you are CA resident, shop somewhere like amazon.com to automatically save 10% taxes, people who knows how to shop for deals only use newegg's website for reference, like a library, but they don't buy stuff from newegg, meritline has insane deals for small items, frys and amazon and few other small tech sites has better deals than newegg.

@worlddomnit: Seagate ripped off their own employees and investors, then bought Maxtor.

I wont buy anything from them.

The review of the ARES left me disappointed anyways. A $1800 rig will beat the pants off this thing.

vote-for4vote-against

@csharp1314: As far as newegg being a "ripoff", they are generally within 1% of anyone online, and they dont argue about returns...although they wanted to charge me a $35 fee for returning Corsair RAM that had an "A" in the part number instead of a "B"

When things are on sale, they are often 75% of the lowest net price and almost always have free shipping

vote-for1vote-against

No Velociraptors? No SAS? No RAID card? $6000? lol

vote-for1vote-against

@loubriccant: Oh man, those are good! Where'd you find those??

(BTW, IT guy and not offended. I think they're pretty damn funny, if inaccurate, which all the best jokes are!)

vote-for1vote-against

@rangerscott: They do sell motherboards that don't have SATA ports behind the PCI-e slots. They also sell SATA cables that have 90degree plugs that will fit under a graphics card. You have to look for the MOBO that suits your needs.

I had to install my heatsync fan in backwards because my RAM was too close to my processor slot. (mod edit: profanity) happens.

@drwurm: IF they weren't on sale you would still have to pay the tax my friend. It's still a deal.

@reverendsponge: It's pretty top of the line for gaming.

It's definitely up there for home video processing but someone doing it for a living could find some upgrades. Video rendering takes a lot of resources.

vote-for1vote-against

@drwurm: What are you talking about? I'm in CA, and they don't charge 'full retail' tax prices, you pay tax on the sale price.

vote-for1vote-against

@csharp1314: You do NOT save taxes at Amazon.

Every state with a sales tax I know of, including CA, charges a 'use tax' - by law you are required to pay sales tax on your income taxes.

Just because Amazon doesn't collect doesn't mean you aren't breaking the law if you don't pay it.

@aoviss: Though I have never had a problem with Maxtor drives. Seagate really did start producing some garbage. I would never buy another Seagate product again just due to all the firmware issues that occurred within the last 2-3 years.

vote-for1vote-against

@aoviss: eh? very funny, within 1% and 75% lower than other place? newegg you say? that's laughable, because right now meritline is selling microsoft ergonomic keyboard 4000 for $16,99 and newegg is selling for the same item for 200% of the cost, point proven, there's no need to be a smart ass who act like they know what they are talking about, i've been online since 1990s

vote-for1vote-against

@craig234: so you pay use tax? who else is stupid enough to do that? do a google search, how many people tell you to save tax buy shopping online and how many places tell you to pay "use tax", even if it does exist, it's not enforced, it's like J walking, who cares? breaking the law? I probably pay more taxes than your whole family combine.

They could leave out the SSD and put liquid cooling in. the case sucks any ways. who realy needs 7tb for storage and 12 gigs of ram. eh what ever, i guess if you got the money to blow go for it, ship me one too.
