Hey guys, I found this ad online, is this a good price for all the stuff you get?



OS : Windows 7 64 bit
Ram : 4 gigs SLI OCZ ( 8 Gigs G Skill, and 4 gigs OCZ Reaper Included ) for a total 16 gigs of ram!
GPU Nvidia GTX 280 1gb ddr3 2GB in current configuration ( included as well ATi 4870 1 Gb GDDR5, 2x 8800 GTX Supercooled) Thats 4 GPUS' See bot for info
Motherboard: 680i SLI mobo
Hard Drives : 2x 7200 RPM 150 GB!'
CPU : intel Core 2duo 6750 ( ALSO included AMD Black Phenom Quad core CPU) Great Deal!
Monitor: 1 Alienware OPTX 22" LCD 1080p Monitor ( INCLUDED AS WELL a LG 1080P 24" Monitor) thats 2 1080P monitors
Pre configured any way you like. This is a dream deal I have a ton of hard ware which I will let you see and test if you like that all comes in this deal for $600. Performs amazing in all video games to date!
I will also Include a Starcraft 2 Beta key with the deal!.

Total cost- $600

And If I were to buy this and test out the computer, what should i look for a red-flag not to buy or something?

Thanks in advance

Assuming it all works, for $600 it's a pretty darn good deal, esp. considering the LCDs itself are probably worth a total of $300. Imo, this deal seems too good to be true.

That dosen't make sense at all. Be warned.

Honestly it sounds like a scam to me. Especially with what shadow703793 quoted above.

Anyone know those monitors alone are EASILY worth 259-300 so ... be careful.

Also when I googled the board it has 4 slots. How are you going to fit maybe 6 memory sticks. And I say 6 because nobody in their right mind is going to throw in a 4 gb stick into this system for $600.

This does seem too good to be true. If it really is true and everything works, then this is one good deal...

Either I'm not reading it right or its full of such nonsense. Mixing 8GB and 4GB sticks? "current configuration" GTX 280 with a AMD 5xxx and two 8800GTX cards for four video cards? It seems like just a bunch of stuff to me. Check it out if you want, but I'd make sure everything works as its supposed to.
