    Ridiculously expensive PCs

    Does anybody have any links to some top of the top of the top of the range PCs that can be bought at ridiculous prices. I am not looking for servers , just standard PCs with every component really top end.

    These are the sort of things that would be sold to somebody who would pay 100% more for a processor that is 5% faster just because it is the fastest available.

    ...I can't afford to buy them, but l
    need some links for some pricing research

    I can get some laughs from a Dell XPS I think.

    A memory Upgrade from 1gig to 4 gig is gonna slow down a gaming PC, which is what an XPS is supposed to be. It'd be good for film and maybe photo editing..maybe. But no good for gaming. Either way, it cost £947 to upgrade

    Now going from a 3.2 P4 to a 3.6 costs £340

    I;m at £4565 with only one monitor

    Told ya SavRow were pricey

    I heard somewhere that they are some of the people from "the overclocking store" (which closed down a couple of yrs ago) I might be wrong there though.

    SavRow PCs are very nice

    Paul Dutton - who now works for HEXUS worked at Savrow as a consultant for a while.

    James Smith - who used to do integration for Advance Micronics / OCS works at SavRow now - and has an exceptional PC build capabilities.

    You guys may bash the price, but they are in biz - and they do build a very good system.

    I doubt many people (if at all) on this forum could integrate a system as well - i.e in tidyness and reliability

    Anyone with any clue would source all the components and build it for a fraction of that price, but then I guess they're catering for the "with more money than sense" brigade though

    It is amusing and eye opening to see how much people are prepared to pay and that these sites/companies trade (profitably) and good luck to them too.
