I was thinking what would cost me to assemble hexacore using retail pricing (assuming Apple would get decent profit from these prices). chip - $1000 (both i7 and W36xx has the same price) board - $350 (e.g. gigabyte X58-ud7 class with USB3.0 SATA 3.0, 6 RAM etc) graphics - $250 (e.g. saphire 5830) 12G memory - $360 in 6x2 PC1600 hexachannel kit 1TB HD - $100 or so Apple case - $350? (it's really nice case u know?) burner - $30ish decent quiet pwr supply - $100ish? wrls kbd+mgc mouse - $120ish? OSX - say $200 if retail Win7 would be any indication and we like OSX don't we? All in all $3000ish? How much would you be willing to pay for these specs and would not feel being robbed?
