Default Newegg price mistake?

Newegg.com - ABS ULTIMATE M6 Pro, Athlon64 3500+, 1GB, 200G, 2 x 6800 GT PCI-E, SLI, Windows XP Pro - Retail

I know i could build that thing for $1,000 or less.

Got to be a mistake.. Unless they just havent botherd to change the price.. you could probably get an SLI'ed 8800GTX with a C2D for that price.

2 Grand is alot for that.

Thats exactly what i thought. I don't buy computers but if i was going to I'd go with ABS cause there looking pretty good. They probably sell some to people who don't know about technology they just look for a high price and automatically think its good.
