Pentium 4 Extreme Edition is expensive for the performance gained, thus this version of the FragBox 2 is, too.

At almost $6,000 as tested, the FragBox 2 does cost a pretty penny. While the 300GB hard drives ($600 upgrade), 20-inch LCD (about $950), and GeForce 6800 Ultra ($450 upgrade) certainly contribute to that price, the 3.466-GHz P4EE chip adds a...
