I'd guess it is either 680i SLI or 590 SLI based, at $200-$300 price range. The reason for the price is that it is a VoodooPC computer. It is the computer-world equivalent of a Ferrari, with the brand and all associated bragging rights and customer service.

wow. That is one OVER the TOP rig.

But I'd love it!




You're right, unless you are planning one crazy server, quad-core is pretty much useless. In the future though, multi-thread processing will become more and more common. We're pretty much at the limit with clock speeds, that's the reason for the push to dual and multicore today.
