Got 8,000 Dollars to Burn? Get a BFG Phobos.

BFG has released it's latest product, which appears to be high end to ultra high end computer systems!

Upon inspection, the flagship brand can be customized up to 12,000 dollars!

Lmfao. If you want them to overclock your two 295s, it'll be $700. Overclock the 285 that's just for Physx? Another $550 please.

I haven't seen such cripplingly ridiculous overpricing since I last looking at the Beast Computers website.

Maybe its to pay all the staff they need to hire. :P Why on earth would BFG create a PC which costs so much, and in the current economic downturn?

LOL, I managed to max out the price to nearly $17,000 by choosing the highest options.

Who's gonna spend that on a single PC system? Jim...

Ok, it would be silly to select Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Elements and ALSO the Combo package

All in all, it looks really polished, and with that touch screen up front, which you can just press to shutdown/restart/sleep your computer is a very attractive addition. The iPOD dock, whilst useless to me, is sure to turn a couple of heads

As for their timing, honestly, it doesn't matter when they release it, potential buyers aren't likely going to let the silly economy affect their purchases:>

I think if I had $8000 to spend on a PC, I wouldn't know how to spend it all!

Nah you'd just have everything packaged in the US or UK and have it shipped all at once :P

More seriously, I think this is just WAY overpriced. The case is of course worth a lot because of its sleekness, but everything else is overpriced.

$8000 would make a nice gaming rig and a 6-8rig folding farm
