Dell has begun to take orders for its XPS 600 Renegade, a gaming desktop that costs just under $10,000. The system trumpets several advanced technologies nary before seen in a consumer desktop. Graphics buffs will be pleased to know that a four nVidia 7900s power the system, delivering 2GB of on-board memory. Also of note is the presence of the world s first dedicated physics accelerator, the AGEIA PhysX, in essence freeing up the CPU from having to perform physics engines complex calculations. The CPU itself, an Intel Pentium Extreme Edition Dual-Core, runs at an overclocked 4.26GHz. While the price tag may seem a little steep, keep in mind that the system comes with the Dell 3007WFP 30-in. flat panel monitor. Finally a use for all those big sacks of money that you undoubtedly have strewn about the house.

Sorry to post in a REALLY old article, but you could build something much faster that's watercooled, i7 and for much less. Probably without a 30-in monitor though. Even now a €10,000 Desktop would still be overkill, and actually very hard to reach that, unless you buy factory overclocked parts and overclock literally everything. It's funny how fast computers have evolved.
