damn...i barley know what any of that stuff is but 5,800 dollars is a lot of money!

i personally dont care for Voodoo computers, but seems to have some good stuff (the stuff i do know) and a lot of extra stuff) so if you have that money, i say go for it!

I completely agree with Imation. There are a lot blanks in there that need to be filled in before that price can be justified. As in, who manufactured the hard drives? and what kind of warranty is this coming with?

I just don't see even close to $5k in equipment.

never mind.

it's the graphics card. it's a pro card. so it's probably around $2,000...and that's a rough estimate.

let me be firm on this...

<rant>

YOU DON'T NEED A WORKSTATION IN ORDER TO GAME. THAT IS OVERKILL. IT'S LIKE TAKING CARE OF AN TERMITE INFESTATION BY DROPPING A TAC-NUKE ON YOUR HOUSE.

</rant>

but if you're an engineer and you actually need a number cruncher of this kind of magnitude....haha, more power to you.
