    Two words (without reading the link): Dell Renegade. It will be the first system available to feature such a setup.

    The Alienware Aurora ALX already has a Quad SLI setup.

    Of course, it's also insanely overpriced in true Alienware fashion. Besides, four GPUs just seems over the top to me.

    Boy i'd have to say that that is truly a waste of money...
    Even by my standards, which are really low for high priced stuff... I'll buy the 500 dollar cell phone then throw it away but what a waste...

    Dell has had this product sampled and in production for a long time now.

    Prices start cheaper and the majority have already been spoken for.

    5000 was the limted run.

    Gotta love some of your comments kermit :D

    Makes you seem like a right sage init :smoker:

    NR, ahh. I was unaware. I thought Dell had the rights to this custom chipset.

    Jack, that's your opinion which is formed based on your needs. Your needs may not be someone else's needs. For instance, the total cost of my system that I just built (including speakers, keyboard/mouse, etc.) was around $4500.00 (of course that also includes two 20" widescreen flat panels).

    $4500, geez, mine will still be above $5000 I think. When I said Why Pay for anything, I was meaning, everything is over priced if you ask me.

    Nvidia will be doing much of the design like with the previous spec'd xps600.

    A lot of the models will be seeing changes soon.

    The majority of other products will continue to be Dell designs.

    It's almost impossible not to catch an upgrade bug reading these threads. That Alienware looks badass.

    Really? They give me the exact opposite reaction.

    $5000 is 2500 pints of Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate ice cream. You have to keep your priorites in the face of many desirable items.
