Nope, The quadro is the most exensive part on the PC... you can do about the same for $1500

Seems a bit pricey even with the $500 GPU. For that price they cut a few corners, like using Kingstons value ram, cheap hard drive, and it comes without an OS.

How would a quadro classify the rig as a gaming computer?  Quadro's aren't the best for games...But that price does seem steep!  What are you using it for, I assume rendering and physics simulation...And what is up with the raid controller card, but not utilizing any raid?

Damn that is a nasty price.  My computer (if you don't count the SSDs, monitors, speakers, mouse, and keyboard which yours does not have) cost ~$1850 shipped, with an OS, lot faster memory, bigger/faster HDD, DVD burner, water cooling, and the most PIMP paint job you will ever see.  Even adding in the cost of a Tesla C1060 mine would still be cheaper.  You might want to consider building your own since they seem to be using cheaper parts and then ripping you.

for that price I have to agree with everyone else. They are using cheap brands. you can get alot more for your money from just about anywhere else.

Yeah this seems to be a ripoff to me. I would say that especially because from what I have heard you can use some regular Nvidia GPU's but convert the to work station/graphics design cards by flashing the BIOS, and usually for about half the price with better performance. Either way when you build a PC yourself you get way more for your money, and if you have any problems you also have learned where to go to fix them. I personally have not had a prbuilt PC since 1994 I think it was

I don't know what you ever did about this system snowfleury, but I could build you a better system for half that price with better performance and an operating system, and have it to you I would think in less than 5 days after I got the parts!

Way to pricey, my advice to you is to learn how to tweak and overclock  (good hardware) and save yourself a couple of g's.

Indeed, I'm hoping he checked back here and didn't get ripped off. Anyways...talking about rip offs...

I have to put in that every one is right in that pre-built computer being a rip, you could build it cheaper even when using better & more expensive parts!

I agree that ebayer is asking way too much for his used computer, he is probably hoping that his software adds some huge value and that people get misled by the new type of that brand vs. his old one.

prebuilt pc's suck any true geek buys after market and builds it him or "her" self.

I am new here but I have to voice my opinion on the subject. To me the best computer is up to the individuale. My questions to you are. Will it do the things you want it to do? Is it the parts that you want? Is it in your budget? Is it upgradeable for the future? Those are main questions if the answer is yes then you have the best computer for you. It might not be for someoneelse nomatter what you put in it or dont put in it we are all different and have different styles and ideas of what we want our computer to do. I am neither for or against intel/amd or ati/nvidia. To me it is a nice computer. And to me a good computer does all the questions that i asked.

yes everyone has different needs for there computer, maybe some need it for school, gaming, work, ect Along with how much your willing to give up for it (money wise :D). Most of the things have been mentions above so you have to think about all that before we can see if it is right for you.
