To be honest I have no clue. I spent maybe 1800 on mine but it's nowhere near what that is...

I think the 2700 is a fair price, especially since it comes with 3 monitors.

NooG said...

Haha /g/ trolls crack me up... That's a ridiculous setup but 9k is way too much... I'd say 3.5k at the very most

Very great hardware you have, i'd like to have some stuff like that :D Price is good, i think. In shops in my City, the price for CPU, GPU, MoBo, RAM, 3xHDD was 6400 PLN, but in dollars is approximately a 2176 USD :D Following
