  I wonder  
 
Is this a computer that can actually run FEAR on completely full graphics?

  Yea right  
 
Pay $20,000 for this PC now and in 6 months it won't even be worth $500.

  lol  
 
little bit of an over exaggeration don't you think.

i actually track computer prices... since the release of intel's core duo 2 the prices of computers have been relatively fixed...

10 $1000-1500 (canadian) CPU's and 60GB of RAM which, probably alone costs $5000

this actually sounds like a cheap computer for what it is, about $23,000 canadian, about $24,000 after tax...


but yes computer prices do fell like bricks from time to time... like the release of the core duo 2.

similarly when photonic computers are released the computers we have now are going to be dirt cheap.

  if only...  
 
if only money were no object.

how fast can it encode a dvd?

only 15A... hell requires its own dedicated fuse basically, esspecially after you ad 6 or 8 monitors into the mix...lol

  Hmph,  
 
It's probably still not beefy enough to run Windows Vista.

  Super Computer? LOL!  
 
I am pretty sure that a Mac is acutely better than this... Just what I think. Mac is 64 GB and has Tera-flops. Not giga-flops
