Machines running the 980X can be had starting at $2825, but as you can imagine the price rapidly grows when you add in options like video cards, storage, and RAM. Velocity Micro will offer the processor in several of its desktops.

 

The desktops include the Edge Z55 starting at $2825 and the Raptor Lx665 and Lx775 desktops will have the Core i7-980X. The Lx665 sells for $3599 and the Lx775 sells for $4799 on TigerDirect.
