You could build the same PC, if not better, for around $2k.

The SSD and the PSU together net about $800, which mostly is wasted money.

Sound card is also not needed because MOBO has integrated ones already.

The graphics cards are top of the line obsolete tech.

The monitors and printer are about $260 each.

I would say if he sold it for $2500 then it would be a deal, but $4000 is not worth it.

Just save yourself some money and start a thread for a full computer system w/monitors, printer, kb&m, OS, desk, chair and lamp for $4000.

Not at all worth 4k.

You can build a better performing setup for about 2k.

That's what I figured. I wasn't going to buy it. Just thought it was funny that the guy was asking $4k for it and wanted to share. When I saw it I had a nice little laugh at the money he wasted building it.

To me, that's a lot to ask for something that most of us at Toms could easily build for less. I would think that at that price you'd price out most besides enthusiasts, who know better...

Pretty funny.
