personally i would look at something with extreme power for number crunching and encoding

4xOpteron 280's
4gb+Ram
Dual 600w psu's
One huge freaking raid array
all in a server chassis.
thats a smart one, would you need 4 mobos for each cpu?

"1GW of power"

wow how many power supplies do you want? perhaps you mean 1kw?

anyway i can't see why people are so obsessed with hugely expensive gaming rigs. i'd rather spend the money on overall power. so the opteron 280 if memory serves is a 2.4ghz dual core. mmmmm 8 2.4ghz cores, i'm in heaven . don't know what server boards are like for overclocking or if it is even possible but i would push for say 2.8ghz and rule the world. some server motherboards i believe have pci-e x16 slots but i would settle for one with AGP and just get say one of the gainward 7800gs's with the gt core. but if i could find one with x16 slots obviously i would throw in a 7900gtx/x1900xtx just to complete the rig.

This thread is pointless. Does the thread starter sincerely believe that people will throw away their old pc and make an entirely new one for bragging rights on a thread?
