What, no link? :p Seems like incredible overkill, I calculated the price of my "ultimate dream computer" and it only came out to $4000.

Its made for Pixar/Dreamworks/ILM... its a Steve Jobs writeoff.

That's actually pretty cheap... especially if you get like, SLi'd Quadro 5500's (2GB texture/mesh buffer -- or just frame buffer for software mode).

Sure renderfarms are primarily made up of a lot (1000+) of crappy computers... but they need behemoths to edit the sourceart with... that's these things.

No. Noone on this earth with a right mind and half a brain would even want to use a computer like that for gaming. It's pointless, and there are more powerfull computers out there anyways. This isn't the UGM. It's a high-end graphics machine. That is all.

What's the purpose in planing to buy a $27,000 RIG while UT2007 is just going to run 'fine' with the 7800 GTX and AMD athlon 4400 Dual core procecor.

Sorry about no link. http://www.boxxtech.com/products/apexx4.asp

As for ever really buying one, no thanks to much money for what I do. When I saw this thing and what they are suppose to cost I couldn't believe it.

LOL, just noticed the HardDrive capacity, hell with 7.5TB you will never have to delete anything from your pc (unless you really want to), just wasting some serious time antivirus-sanning it.

7.5TB, that's just like the whole web, right? ;)

Hell you could store all of your music cd's and Movies on it and every game you have and then some. LOL Heck maybe some day games will require disc space of a 1TB and we will be running on 128b systems

Well 1TB for a video game, i really doubt it, even for the next 10 years, just saying this, remember the time when there was those shiney new "166 MHZ!1 ZMONG" with the turbo button in front of the casing. It could barely run StarCraft with a 2MB GPU. Or yet games that were runned on floppy disks. The biggest files in a video game are mainly the textures, i don't see a game's system files up to, let's say, 100GB that would be freaking ridiculous.

I agree with Angel, my dream machine would cost like $4000

That machine isnt even worth it. Who the hell would use 7.5tb of hard drive space, ROFL.

That's not enough space for my pr0n :(

Well I have alot of movies and DVD's on my pc and my total HDD capacity, which I think is big, is only 1.2TB.

It is a sickingly overpowered monster for a normal gaming machine.

Thanks. :)
