Its way over the top for anything thats out now, and in a years time, you'll prolly be able to build something that will game better for $3000.
I dont know but just servers I have seen have 12Gb ram.

yeah, but servers can actually use that much RAM.

My PC runs completely fine on 2GB RAM, with paging file disabled, when I'm running demanding games.

You'd think there would be ddr3 in there aswell. I wonder if someone will buy it.

Actually I bet there's lots of rich kids that would buy that. You'd be surprised for sure. I bet whoever is selling that is making a killing

im sure its not built before its on ebay. they just list it and hope someone buys it, then they will put it together.

but i'd have went with a better case (i.e Lian Li v2000)

I don't know, but I would MUCH rather have a Creative X-FI Platinum than on-board...

LOL this is a joke.
