Is this build really overpriced?

Here is one PC I'm very interested in:

http://www.cybertronpc.ca/Customkititems~ic~GM2171C~kc~1~iQty~1~Source~VC~show~3.htm

I know that the case itself cost about $800, but I like it, I don't care if that cost that much. I'm more concerned about the harware. Is this a good price for this build, if put beside the price of the chassis?

    Depending on the hardware I think the case should be fine. The only question is does the case have all the feature you want. What the case looks like and what you want it too look like it up to you.

    Actually, here is the full tower I want: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=893911&CatId=4928

    I need for modern and future games.
  5. I would not buy an $800 case...With $800 I could build a pretty good gaming PC. I would go with this case:

    Yeah, I would spend probably at most $1500 on a computer and buy another computer maybe 2-3years later...that computer is no way going to last more than 4years
  7. dual 590's is a waste of money imho
  8. It is, by next year, this $4000 computer will seem substandard...AMD is releasing it's 7000's series this year (the 7970 in january I believe), which has performance similar to the 6990...the 6990 beats the gtx 590. Also, the 7970 is around $400, wayy cheaper than a single GTX590

    6990 DOESNT beat gtx 590, neither 7970 will, it will go nech-by-neck with it...
  10. Level 10 GT is a great case ..... has features I only dreamed about previously .... i.e. the door fan feature....$290 for the white, $240 for the black

  11. either way, it is still a bad purchase in my opinion. way overpriced. dual 590's will have a ton of heat, while a single 7970, while almost as good, but not quit, will use less power and produce less heat. the 590 is two cut down 580s sli'd. what type of monitor setup are you running? that will determine how much gpu power you need. unless you are running 3 monitor 3d surround or something similar, dual 590's is way overkill

    No it doesn't, not at 1920 x 1200 anyway.

    Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

    $ 215.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $ 0.43 - $ 0.50
    $ 500.00 580 (616/953) $ 0.81 - $ 1.05
    $ 725.00 6990 (762/903) $ 0.95 - $ 1.61
    $ 750.00 590 (881/982) $ 0.85 - $ 1.53

    As single cards, the 590 tops the 6990 119 fps (16%) ...... by 9% in SLI vs CF

    The above is irrelevant tho in my opinion.....both cards are dogs.

    Lemme see......I can pay:

    -$1500 for 982 fps with twin 590's

    -$1450 for 903 fps with twin 6990's .... that's 92% of the speed of the above for 97% of the cost

    -$460 for 862 fps with twin 900 Mhz 560 Ti's .... that's 88% of the speed of the 590's for 31% of the cost and 95% of the speed of the 6990's for 32% of the cost

    -$1000 for 953 fps with twin 580's .... that's 97% of the speed of the 590's for 66% of the cost and 105% of the speed of the 6990's for 69% of the cost

    -$1500 for 1030 fps with three 580's .... that's 105% of the speed of the 590's for 100% of the cost and 114% of the speed of the 6990's for 103% of the cost
  13. but does the OP need dual 590's? that is the biggest question
  14. Either way, We can build a top performing system for less
  15. much less
