Unless you are a game developer this is pointless. In games the 980 has better performance and is cheaper than a single Titan. Seeing as quad sli can have worse performance than triple sli and triple sli is only slightly better than dual I would not be surprised if a dual 980 setup could keep up with this setup or at least get very close.

Stupidly overkill. Get a pc with a r9 295x2 and a 2tb SSD instead

if you've got the money to blow on this you can do a lot better than Alienware.

10 year olds dream maybe. pointless.

Jeepers, that's a hectic price for a PC. Not voting either way as I don't know any better.

I didn't realise this is what 4K meant....... £4,000! Wow. Cold.

It may well be the cheapest.... but doesn't necessarily make it a good deal.

does that include postage?

Pointless for 99% of people. As people have said overkill. No game will come close to using the power and by the time they do there will be fat better options and cheaper too

Plus alienware stuff is massively overpriced

Stupidly overpowered/ overpriced but I have to admit I want that chassis!

Isn't the 5930K part of the Haswell-E series and therefore not 5th generation broadwell, which won't be available at these kinds of speeds until Q2 next year?

Near on the £2k we paid for our 386 2mb pc with tv card and 1024 screen with CD-ROM back in 1993

I wonder how many of these OTT builds start off life as a showpiece playing games at max, then 2 months down the line it's just web browsing and the occasional Solitaire? X)

It's a nice spec machine but you're talking at best just over £3k of components. You're paying well over £1k for the Alienware badge.

When it comes to PCs a badge means nothing. It's what's inside that counts. I always build my own machines (except for the cheap hp servers) as you're not generally getting value for money by buying a branded pc...and where's the fun in not building it yourself?

Anyone that buys this isn't going to understand any of what you said because the sort of people that buy an Alienware PC or laptops do not understand even the basics else they would be buying components and building their own or buying from scan or OC.

If this was £2,000 I'd be tempted

I am glad you guys like this deal

A lot of people confusing the Titan with the Titan Z. There is a BIG difference. A single TZ is more or less equivalent to 2 Black Titans.

This could be a real interesting machine for GPU rendering, and general 3D work.

By the way , I don't think you are paying so much for the Alienware brand. Try to custom build it, you will be paying the same or more!

dromi I think you are missing the point of many. yes the titan z is expensive, but there is no need for this build. what screen setup that is supported with games requires that much vram?

its a showpiece if that. did you buy it? probably not. why? probably because you can't afford it and if not that, certainly because you can't justify it.

You would need 3 or 4 hefty cards if you wanted a triple 4k setup or even a 6 screen 1080p setup.

I couldn't disagree more with this statement. Tell me something, How much can you get for your frankestein PC build on ebay? Any branded PC will have a much better resale value.

I think you are missing the point. The point is to get the maximum GPU power in a single PC. As I mentioned before this is not for playing games, but to use it as GPU rendering machine. Very specific I agree, but there is a point in my world at least
