Well you certainly wouldn't buy this system because it represents value for money!

You even get to call 8Pack's mobile number to talk about his rocket. Ahem.

4.7k might be reassuringly expensive to some and it's a great looking build, but in the cold light of day it's an i5 running 200MHz faster than mine which cost about 600 all told, minus the monitor.

I honestly don't get it.

You're basically just paying a metric crap-load for the custom 8Pack case, watercooling loop and access to him. However, having seen some of his advice elsewhere, that being a good thing is open to interpretation.

I have the same sentiment time and time again whenever a top-end pre-build like this is released, concerning its styling: Where are all of these 13 year-old boys that are spending 4000+ on a PC?

Over-branded, over-aggressive and over-l33t IMO. It's one thing modding/building your own individual case and going with whatever look you please, but when it's an off the shelf item that looks like this, it has a bit of a "l33t gam3rz" feel to it.

Yes, or perhaps their hoping to appeal to the Sheikh LAN party scene?
