The price you're seeing from OriginPC is the base price before changes to the system. The super high end system Tom's looked at had pretty much every option maxed for the Chronos at that time (there are different options available now but the price climbs as you choose them).
Keeping somewhat conservative choices; Core i7-4790k, Ram to 16GB, GPU to NVidia GTX 980, 128GB SSD, and two HDD's I kept under $2500 while a similar system, sourced and built by one's self would run about $1800. Had I been less conservative, I could probably hit the $4000 mark similar to the configuration Tom's looked at but, some things, like the chassis they used (Bitfenix Phenom M) don't seem to be available for the Chronos anymore so it gets a little tricky
