looking at computers on ebay and saw this click here i thought that AMD didnt use DDR2 yet as the cpu (with onboard memory controller) doesnt support it?

£4,300.00 'nuff said.

All the seller is doing is touting for business - seems that it will be built for anyone who pays that kind of money...

So it has 4 hard disks and 2 daisy chained graphics cards with a 20 inch tft. Still seems well over the top for price.

after a quick look on the net. this mobo doesn't run ddr2 mem as you guessed.

the price for the whole pc does seem a bit high but you are getting £900 worth of graphics cards and the case is over £100. if you went and bought all the components listed it would probably come to something near his starting price.

so it is really not important what people get

'if you went and bought all the components listed it would probably come to something near his starting price'...you forgot that he has to make a profit unless he is running a charity. Mammon 1...Altruism 0

Just now, 7 mins to go before auction closes, not one bid. seems no-one is interested.

Anyone can come up with a list of parts, and the offer to sell them, built up into a PC.

If no one buys it, the seller just does not buy the bits.

I guess.

"I have one of these systems myself, and i must say i have been blown away by both the sheer power of the machine and its looks."

and

"NOTE: Both the Motherboard and Graphics cards are not released until Late November/Early December"

He/she has one, and the parts are not yet avaliable!!

No surprise no one wants it.

PS, UNSOLD.
