Talking State of the Art Computer with Dual Display

Because I almost never have time for it anymore (2 kids and better hobbies now!), I'm putting my built computer up for sale. This bad boy is top shelf all the way. If you don't know what you are looking at, feel free to check this out with Rastus or any other computer guy you trust on how sweet this rig is. You would spend $5k easily to buy anything close to this new.

What's the good news?
This system was purpose-built by me and it is top of the line. I personally selected each and every component for speed and reliability. This system is spotted-ape fast and will run every game on the market beautifully--that means Doom3 and HalfLife2, FarCry or other graphically-intensive games. Its dual display setup is sweet for gaming and multitasking (you can drag windows between monitors, run multiple desktops, etc.) There is plenty of room to expand in the future without buying a new system. Want to get a SATA drive? Plug it in (there's room for 4 more). New processor in the future? Swap it out. More memory (you need more than 1GB??!!)? Snap it in. Add more drives to the Ultra160 SCSI Array? Plug 'em up.

More good news?
I can set it up with Windows XP Professional (fresh installation), MS Office and Outlook 2003, and a bunch of other software (too long to list, but Nero6 for example) and games (like Civ3, Warcraft 3, SimCity 4, FarCry and more) for you, as well. I also have all the manuals and some of the boxes for the components. That means you get it ready to run.

Any catches?
I'm not parting it. I'd be willing to trade straight up for a rig that's similar in terms of equivalent value. This is too bulky for shipping to make sense, financially. This is a full tower system with 2 huge monitors. You get the idea. That means we meet.

Okay, what's the bottom line?
$2500.
I have quite a bit more than that into it and I can back that up with receipts. The software I will include alone (not pirated games! you get them box and all!) is worth that. Plus, I will custom configure the operating system with all patches, antivirus, etc. I'll even set up your email for you if you have an existing email account. If you want the drives set up differently than a RAID 0, done--just tell me what you want.
