    LOL. Well, the Corsair Hydro is unlikely to leak... but there are instances that they have. When I hear "leak proof", I think of the Titanic.

    The CPU box will run about $5,500 with shipping and taxes from Tiger Direct. The monitors and speaker will be about $2,000 with shipping and taxes from Dell.

    The question is: Can you afford not to not to buy this? Your competition will. If your computer is not instantaneous, it is too slow and there is an opportunity for improvement. I paid this much for a 50 MHz 80486 System with a Sony 21” monitor in 1991.

    If those pictures on your web site are renderings, you are the best renderer ever. It seems unfair to build full scale models and photograph them, thus bypassing the computer completely.

    I wish they were my renderings. No, those are the real deal. I'm in the market for a new desktop, but 7.5K is way too steep for me. If the competition can afford that price tag, well, so be it.
