Ordered on Monday.  Still in Stage 1, can't wait until this machine comes!

I find this deal hard to beat, for $1449 it fit my budget perfectly and I'm coming away with a better computer than I thought I could get.

Currently I'm gaming on a laptop with a Core 2 Duo and a 9400M..... LOL!  I was disappointed when I bought CS:GO and I couldn't even play it.  I'd say I could crank that and also the free games I'm getting with this, huh?  I've been wanting to play BF3 also.  One of the free games coming with it is Metro: Last Light.  Never heard of that but it looks like it will be great to test out this beast.  :-)

Anyone have any info on how the staging goes?

It's been in Stage 1 since Monday, how many stages are there total and how many days can you expect between each stage?

There are Seven Standard Stages:

Stage 1: (Payment Processed) [Payment stuffs]
Stage 2: (Inventory Assignment) [Gathering Organs]
Stage 3: (Phase 1 Stress Testing) [Testing Organs]
Stage 4: (Engineering Lab) [Building Frankenstein]
Stage 5: (Phase 2 Stress Testing) [Bring Frankenstein to Life]
Stage 6: (Quality Assurance) [Making sure Frankenstein is 100%]
Stage 7: (Order is in Queue to be Shipped)  [Unleashing Frankenstein]

There is also an unofficial eighth stage, which is where you go insane a la The Shining while waiting on your PC to arrive from shipping Big%20Smile

Times between each stage vary based on an order, but in general Stage 5 is the longest as it is the most involved. Stage 8 lasts on average around 3-4 years in anxious time, or 5 days or so, real world time.
