Titan Z system and 4k screen for $4,000USD???

http://www.originpc.com/promotion/4k-titan-z/



Apparently, Origin can do one of their Chronos Z systems with a $3,000USD Titan Z GPU and a $750USD ASUS 4k screen, for less than $4,000USD.

That's £2,383 in Sterling.

Am I missing something glaringly obvious here? That's way cheaper than I could possibly build one by buying separate components!

Speccing a system with a 4690K, 240GB SSD and 1TB HDD, and 16GB 2133 RAM comes to $3997USD.

What is everyone else's thoughts on this? Bargain, or too good to be true?

Too good to be true. I don't even see how that's possible?!

My gut feeling is it's all about bragging rights - only an idiot would choose a Titan Z over a way cheaper 780Ti SLI setup which outperforms it, or even the 295X2 which beats both and is still significantly cheaper than the Z.

But yeah pretty soon I can see lost of "ZOMG muh TITANZZZZ!!!!" posts dominating a fair few hardware forums...

I imagine they really aren't selling. No one seems to like the price.

I saw the BOGOF Titan Zs ad, but strangely there doesn't seam to be any way to configure a system with two Titan Zs?

EDIT to add:

Certainly not as much as a bargain to UK customers, because by the time shipping and taxes are added on it's £3,547 UK Sterling.

F*** it, I'm emigrating to the States.

Not to accuse anyone of anything here but didn't some info come up about Nvidia and Origin PCs having a deal to use Nvidia cards in their systems?

Maybe now they're getting a sweet deal on the cards from Nvidia. Can imagine they want to get rid of them cause honestly no one with a brain would buy a Titan Z.

Probably doesn't cost much to make a Titan anyway so now they've got a deal that seems crazy, its actually probably nearer the actual cost and NVIDIA still making a profit, just not as much as when they're feeling greedy.
