What you could get for the price of one Vortex G65

So with the MSI Vortex G65 being so expensive, I thought it would be cool to use that $4,000 USD budget to make an entire setup. Not only is this PC more powerful, but it also includes a 4K monitor, mouse, keyboard, and headphones. I know that the appeal of the G65 is the form factor, but a mac pro case with some red LEDs and an SLI 980 setup isnt going to cut it for $4,000. I even used some pretty overpriced parts and still got away with much better performance. With 6Tbs of HDD storage and a boot SSD, SLI 980Ti from gigaybte, an i7 6700k watercooled with a corsair H100i GTX, Paired with a 4k 60Hz monitor, this beast will absolutley wreck ANYTHING at 1080p with little to no effort and will max out most games at 4k. So this is what you could do with $4,000. Oh yea and you get a free copy of Rainbow Six siege!
