  1. Its not a desktop machine, its a server.

    Therefore it is USELESS for gaming.

    If your gonna spend 5 grand, get a Cyberpower system (Or build it yourself to save at least 25%)

    Now THAT IS a gaming system. Pure Thoroughbred BEAST

    I just bought a z400 for $1100 with slightly better configuration (160GB SSD drive, 3x2GB memory so using triple channel instead of dual) and same video card Quadro 2000. Great machine for CAD/graphics/dv editing, not bad for gaming. 2x4GB suggests this is first generation z400 motherboard (discontinued a year ago, so old obsolete stock), and the price is rather outrageous (it wasn't that expensive when new, someone is making quite a nice markup!). What country are you in?
