Thats an AWFUL lot...

I think the idea of the lower memory option is alot better, but PC's of this kind since they'll be running for each processor, may need that much.

I wonder then how much each PC will get, since it'll just be standard PC's but linked together in a network.

Hehe, you'd need video cards to boot.

Is the highest SLI config, 4 in a row?

I'm not sure, but I'd make a great 3D renderer if every PC had a workstation graphics card!!!

Might have to hack it, and take some processing resources from it
Haha, I'm joking, by the way. I can't hack and wouldn't hack in my life!
