I just built out an almost identitical machine on newegg for around $6400, sans Windows 7. Provided you can build it yourself, load up your OS and do simple math, you've then saved yourself $2500 and still have all applicable manufacturers warranties. Who's going pay $2500 just to have someone else put it together?

...this beast will cost you $10718 if you select all the top of the class options :))

It's good to know  there is still somebody out there who can put together a Dream Machine.

The F-22 is an overpriced and overvalued fifth-generation aircraft that needs to be put to rest. There are much better options for the USAF to pursue (F-35 for example). Nevertheless, it is tough as nails (when it's not grounded for maintenance - which is where it spends most of its days).

 Same can be said about this rig, and the old saying holds true in both cases: all because you can, doesn't mean you should.

 Don't forget, Starscream's an F-22 also.

I am not sure where writer of the article or ElderJefferson got the idea that the F22 isn't necessary but you are all sorely mistaken.  Anyone making the comment that the F35 is a "better option" doesn't understand either weapon system.  It’s like saying that the F16 is a better option than an F15.  There is no other fighter in the world that can hold a candle to the F22, yet there are several that are pretty close to what the F35 is supposed to be.  If you think that China and Russia aren't developing 5th gen fighters you have your head in the sand.  If you think that China and Russia are our friends, you have your head up your backside.  In war you lose if you don't own the skies plain and simple.  The F22 ensures that the US will own the skies for decades to come.  Yes it is expensive, but so are super carriers and the B2... both of which any country would love to have, and China and Russia are trying to develop.

The knock against the Raptor is that it's high maintenance. What good is it if it's always grounded. For that price there are much better options. Military intelligence reports (at least those that the public has access) are always knocking the F22 due to it's poor durability. That doesn't take away from the fact that when operating properly, it has no equal in the skies.

As with computer hardware, the best part isn't always the best.

Who would drop this kind of money without DX11 support?!?

someone who can afford to upgrade it to Windows 7 after they receive it, I assume.

The F-22 is not over kill.. it is an effective projection of power against any nation wishing to test its capablilites

I agree with the statement above, but the F22 Raptor is rediculously amazing. I collect that because the raptor is rediculously amazing, it is described as overkill. I would be curious to see a Build using the Asus Supercomputer board and run quad 5870s. Possible using eyefinity. That would be overkill.

Yes, but can it do wheelies?

And then the real question, can it do wheelies while playing crysis?  :)
