    No, because I'm going to bash the computer and someone is going to strongly disagree with me. The it's going to degenerate into insults totaly unrelated to the topic.

    I could build a better computer for less. No 7,500 dollar computer should be condemed to T2 command rate.

    Maybe kbohip is using this as the build model for his sister's in-law's computer and he's trying to shaft them.

    Dutch recalls the saga of the Price Is Right contestant who won a $10,000 diamond ring, had to sell it pay the taxes on it, but the selling price wasn't enough to cover the taxes.

    LMAO! I should show this to my in-laws. See, see! This is how much computers cost nowdays. How does that $750.00 I'm charging for the whole thing sound now huh?

    BTW, the specs of that $7,500 system read like geek porn.

    who cares where they got their parts, you are winning it, not buying it

    It's always like that Adrian, I read the rules on the first 10 or so and now I dont even bother. Guess they can give away a rig like that but cant be bothered to pay shipping or even get the winner to pay shipping. It's typical.
