All components less than 4 months old, have all original packaging and reciepts.

Has only done 24Hrs work, have not used it in a while due to new addition to the family, hence the sale.

Over $4500 spent, will throw in Far Cry2 and Ghost Recon Advanced Warrior, and Dell multifunction printer to highest bidder.

Im in new zealand, and im used to NZD prices, and that price doesnt intrigue me at all... much better building your own system as suggested

Wow, well, you can see as an idea. IMO isn't a good deal, maybe you can find a local store that have the same components, or a local web page with the same components.
