What happened to the go-l website where it tells about their overpriced jello?
I found a part of it, and I built a computer that cost 40k USD. A lot of the parts are being sold for 1000% of what they are worth.

Somebody on this forum one time was building an $8,000 system, and even putting a Nvidia Quadro FX graphics card in it. At the time, that graphics card was like over $1,000. I still don't know what the full purpose of that graphics card is....

Quadros and FireGLs are for hardcore graphic designing and animating. Most of them aren't compatible with games.

well.... seeing as there isn't a budget....

tyan K8QS Pro
4x Dual Core Opteron 800's (or whatever the fastest is now)
32Gb DDR333 ECC/Registered, but i hardly think that would make much difference with that much memory...
4xSeagate 15k rpm 146Gb's in Raid 0 - twice with SCSI U320
Dual 6800Ultra's in SLI
and a 22" Veiwsonic Graphics monitor that goes up to 2536x2048 or something equally crazy.
an Audigy ZS
oh, and the Klipsch Promedia Ultra 5.1's.... drewl....

i recon that would come close to being the fastest computer you could get imagine that - or don't its making me feel depressed coz of my peice of sh!t...
