i usually dont comment but id like to point out 2 things to the people who say this computer is not worth 2k.

1. It's already been built and you don`t even know all the specifications. The average computer user can not build their own comp. like some of us, which means this computer is probably well priced.

2. You have no idea when this ad was made, at that time it could have cost 2k to build that computer.

The picture`s sole purpose is to sell a computer (which he probably accomplished) and for i-a-b`s purposes, to make us laugh, which for me it accomplished as well. So ease back, relax and just enjoy the creativity it took to make this ad. Your harping on the little details are just going to stress you out and ruin the picture for others.

Awesome, but why did you hide his e-mail? Unless it's old it might attract someone here.

Actually Radeon owns with the 5XXX series. The 5850 is pretty much had the best price/performance ratio. ATI had DX11 for 6 months before Fermi came along. Fermi is a disappointment IMO. I'm waiting for the Fermi refresh before I upgrade from my GTX 285.

"Radeon 48x0 - $90-$290 depending on card.
12GB DDR3 - $360 avg.
I7 920 Bloomfield - $260 avg.
Capable motherboard - $200 avg.
Capable power supply - $80 avg.
Good tower - $60
Monitor like that - $200
Keyboard, Mouse - $100 MAX.

Total - $1550

Ha."

It's probably a HD4850 considering he didn`t give a model number; just doesn`t make sense to simply say HD4800 series if it was anything higher, so that`s only $110. The RAM should cost $330 if using 6 x 2GB sticks as G.Skill Ripjaw 2 x 2GB 1600MHz stuff is $110. The motherboard need only be $120. The monitor, keyboard and mouse may not be thrown in, saving the gut that $300. Admitednly you forgot a 1TB HDD and a DVD Burner, totaling $100 together.
