Falcon Northwest Shows off $4,500 Tiki at PAX

Falcon Northwest is at PAX Prime this weekend, and the company is bringing something special along for the ride. The company has a one-of-a-kind Nvidia GeForce themed Tiki that will be on show at Nvidia's booth. While the color is certainly eye-catching, it's what's inside that grabbed our attention. Falcon Northwest says the hardware under the hood tops out at about $4,500. Peep the spec list below:

  • Nvidia's GeForce GTX TITAN
  • Liquid cooled, overclocked Intel Core i7-4770K
  • 960 GB SSD storage
  • ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus VI Impact motherboard
  • 8 GB of 1866 MHz RAM
  • 2 TB WD drive
  • Windows 8

Falcon is also going to be giving the system away, so if you're at PAX, you might actually get to take this baby home (provided you attend the
"Nvidia Gaming – from mobile to 4K, we've got you covered" session on Monday morning). 

Flacon Northwest sent us a Tiki way back in August 2012, when it first debuted, and we were so impressed, we gave a custom painted Tom's Hardware Tiki away to one of our readers.

    That price point is a little too high for the specs of that system.
    GTX Titan: $1000
    i7 4770k: $330
    960GB SSD: $600
    Asus VI Impact motherboard: $230
    8GB 1866MHz RAM: $100
    2 TB WD HDD: $110
    WIndows 8 OEM edition: $89
    Liquid Cooling loop: $150 (this is over estimating the cost).
    Case: I don't know the name, so lets go with something reasonable at $120.
    The total cost of these parts + shipping of $100 is $2829. I know a lot of work goes into these computers, but is double the price really justifiable?

    I think the cost comes from the custom case and paint... I don't know about the green though... But is a promo for Nvidia... Perhaps the winner gets it delivered in a pizza box with a Taiwanese Pizza Delivery Booth Babe?

    If you can make the same PC for $2829 then perhaps you should do so
