You have some very high priced parts in that computer. The cpu goes for around $500 and the two video cards will run about $900 and the motherboard for that cpu will run about $300 so with just those parts your up to almost what you paid. If you would have listed the motherboard you could find out what it cost since there is a range of boards from $300 to almost $500. However to get to the $2380 that you paid you would have to know what brands of MB, ram , hard drive, case ,blue ray and cpu cooler that are in the computer. Then you can know what to compare with the prices that you pay for these items in your country , because it's all put together I will say that individualy the cost of the components and the cost of assembly will most likely come in above what you paid.
