Best computer you've seen?

Postby THCAndy » 17 Feb 2011, 12:29

Today at the shop, when I got in I noticed a PC on the bench with a giant graphics card, heatsink, and 5 strategically placed fans (not including heatsink, and graphics card fan). This is probably the best I've seen. Heres the specs:

Well the case alone had to be $100-$200, it housed 5 fans, not sure if could hold more.
The graphics card is between $250-$400, it has an i7 processor, not sure the price for that or the board so...

That gives a VERY rough estimate...... xD
