CyberPower Launches Power Mega II Workstations

Available in three versions - the 1000, 2000 and 3000 series, the systems target photo and video enthusiasts at the low end with systems that start at about $1,000, CAD professionals with systems from about $2,200, and high end configurations from about $3,500. The base system comes equipped with a Core i5-3570K CPU, 8 GB memory, 1 TB HDD space and Nvidia Quadro 600 card for $999. Upgrade options include CPUs up to a Core i7-3770K, overclocking, liquid cooling, SSDs, up to 32 GB memory, and more powerful graphics cards (up to a Quadro 6000) that can elevate the system price to more than $11,000.

Upgrade to a Xeon system with E5-2687W processors and you will be looking at a price range between $6,000 and about $17,000. Yowza.

    Workstations should never include overclocking.

    horrible specs for the money (unless the logo on the case is made up of pure gold with diamond outlining, and secured to the case using carbon nanotubes coated in platinum)

    boxx is a better choice if you want to spend so much money.

    It seems the "workstation" part escaped your attention. A single Quadro card can cost $6000.

    Lot of money to pay to a relatively unknown player.

    a quadro 600 cost $120, it is a low profile card that is pretty much the equivalent to a geforce 8600 in terms of speed

    for $1000 you can build a much better workstation rig than their $1000 workstation (base config)

    A 600, yes, but a Quadro 6000 costs about $10,000 in the UK, making $17,000 quite a reasonable price for a top end workstation:
