    I am busy with a midrange/highend ITX build at the moment, these are all probably just ATX.

    It does becoming ridiculously expensive, especially since the Rand is doing crappy at the moment, prices of parts have gone through the roof since I last checked PC prices which was like 2 -3 years ago.

    I would rather spend that much money on an alienware lappy than a custom PC

    Any indication of displays used? Displays used to be boring... but there are more and more hi-res screens available today...

    Strange how those PCs are very similar to my build, EXCEPT for the graphics cards... :\

    And this article only shows us how much they spent on the PC. There's still the screen and other peripherals, the audio components. The chair being used.

    I went the full hog. My system is:

    A duel socket Xeon at 3.46 six core so with ht its 24 logical cores which can hit 3.9 gigs.
    48 gig ram, 4 x 15 000 rpm Sas drives stripe raid. (1 tb). Two sata hdds, 2 tb & 3 tb.
    1 x nvidia 690 screen card. 1 x samsung 480 gig flash drive.
    Total cost about R 120 000

    The problem I have is only one PCI express screen card and where do I upgrade to from here?
