Dell XPS 600 Renegade is a monster

By Derek Sooman on March 23, 2006, 10:06 AM
Fans of monster PCs who have money to burn will be pleased to hear about the XPS 600 Renegade from Dell – the most expensive consumer PC the company has offered in several years. This beast has a heavily overclocked dual-core Pentium processor, four graphics processors with 2 GB of memory, a standalone physics processor and a 30" display.

The XPS 600 Renegade is a limited production PC that includes everything that you may be looking for in a package that starts at $9930. At the core of the PC is a Pentium D 965 Extreme Edition processor that has been overclocked from 3.73 to 4.26 GHz. Other components include 2 GB DDR2-667 memory, a 160 GB 10,000 RPM WD Raptor as well as a second WD 400 GB 7200 RPM hard drive. The Renegade also comes with a quad-SLI system that includes four GeForce 7900 GTX graphics processors with a total of 2 GB of GDDR3 memory.
Don’t expect to pick this baby up for mere pocket change, though. At nearly $10,000 a pop, its lottery winners only, probably. Still, its probably a bargain, though.

If you are looking for the best that money can buy today than even this hefty price tag could be considered a bargain: For example, comparable high-end PC from Alienware and VoodooPC check in at about $8500 - without a physics board and a 30" monitor, which currently sells for $2200 on Dell's website.

Would love to have one of these babies at home - doubt I could convince the job to get me one though :(

$10,000 for a computer? Kind of speechless, really. But I can't imagine gaming on that monster :). This is obviously strictly for the top 1% of the social class, but man is the system sweet!

It's an awesome machine but it's a little much. The depreciation on hardware mean that that machine will cost 1/2 the price in a year. I'd prefer to build a new machine every year for $1,500.
