You could spend $1500 on a QX9775 CPU, $650 on a Skulltrail motherboard, $840 on 4Gb of Corsair Dominator DDR3 or $550 on a PCP&C 1200W PSU. The GTX 280 is the cheapest top of the line component you can buy at $499.
Everything is just ridiculously priced, except for graphics cards. The Q9775 is 1500$, which is 1000$ too much, and PSUs cost less than 5$ to make. Not to even mention ddr3...

So in other word we should all be able to have ultra high-end computers for 1500$!
