Calling that prebuilt a 'hose job' is an understatement. 10 gen cpu, pure crap psu, no mention of the motherboard, 16GB of RAM, etc, etc ... for $2664 should be a crime. What is your monitor resolution and I'll post you a build that will take that prebuilt to the cleaners for the same price or less.

Well said!

CLX are a recent new venture by an established enterprise level company, presumably looking for an easy cashflow boost from their corporate customers' employees and friends.

It reminds me of battles against mainframes in the early 90s, when users wanted networked PCs to speed up info flow, but IT still operated on the "You can't be fired for going IBM" principle.

I suspect CLX are saddled with overhead charges suited to their parent company, and therefore think they have to charge this kind of price for that pile of rubbish in order to make a profit. Thank their accounting system.

Or of course they could be deliberately trying to defraud the ignorant. Hope not, let's stick with the accounting view—I've seen plenty of cases where it diverges from a new reality within an established operation.

Someone is trying to dump their old tech at new tech prices. I'm guessing that board is a B460 and the RAM speed is gimped to 2666mhz because of that. What's worse is that psu their putting in their rigs. I haven't seen a hose job like this since the old CyberPower days.
