That’s a lot of money for a PC, but of course, you’re getting a lot of PC in exchange. Get this: the HPE-490t is a gaming rig with a Core i7-970 Six-core 3.2GHz CPU and 9GB DDR3 standard. You can optionally go for the Core i7-970X chip, which will give you 3.33GHz, 1.5MB L2 + 12MB Shared L3 cache, but of course for an extra charge. To go along with the six cores and 9 gigs of ram, there’s a free upgrade to 1.5TB storage, and a decent 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5570 w/ HDMI. That card is not top of the line, of course, but then again this isn’t a $6k gaming machine. The HPE-490t usually sells for $2,349.99 but HP is currently running a $500 off promotion. With Logicbuy’s stackable $25 coupon, you get the machine delivered for $1,824.99, shipping included.
