    Cool, once you spend that money...

    - someone will tell you that you should put some RAID in your storage system...
    - you have to buy Blue-Ray discs
    - pray for RAM not giving you problems
    - some friend will tell you "how the heck is your computer so slooow"

    ... any more ideas?

    Maybe it's just me but I don't see how that is worth $11k?

    I don't either... Alienware is very expensive. I'm sure someone could build a Cloverton system with 16gb ECC for less.

    Buddy of mine built this rig back in May.

    Dual Dual core HT Xeons 3.2Ghz I believe
    4GB ecc Ram
    Suprmicro board
    Coolance case with all the goodies
    1000 watt P/S
    7950 1GB card
    74 GB Raptors Raid 0
    All watercooled. CPU, Ram and a custom solution for the GPU's added after these pictures.

    Think it cost him right around $5300.00

    you aren't kidding, but you will sure pay a pretty penny for it.... take a look at one of their examples of their work:

    34 HOURS of airbrushing for that...... Insane? Yes. Totally Amazing? YES! If I could afford one, I'd be tempted to get one.
