It's not that over priced to be honest. For the money, it's not a bad deal.

Urg. Why would you want that? 8GB RAM! Overkill. What gaming application is ever going to use that.
Its way over the top for anything thats out now, and in a years time, you'll prolly be able to build something that will game better for $3000.
