Yes there are comps like this, but maybe u would like to give a link to a web page where we can buy this mobo? Coz I don't think that they sell these kind of monsters in shops for normal users, only for companies keeping servers etc.

You can buy it, but it'll be expensive and pointless because you don't need that many CPUs and that much RAM.

Mouse: Logitech MX-518 - $39.89
Keyboard: Saitek Eclipse - $47.00
Operating System: Windows XP Professional w/ SP2 Retail - $229.95

All prices were gathered from www.newegg.com, and the total came to:

$16,572.80

Shipping was $259.99

Making a grand total of: $16,832.79

Now you may have noticed that I had no cooling system for the case, and well that's because Newegg don't supply LN2 cooling No idea how much these cost but I'm guessing a hell of a lot! So that'll bump up the total price.

Right, this is what I would do with that setup:

1. Obviously, build the PC.
2. Find the LN2 cooling system, buy it and install it.
2. Put the two 7800GTXs in SLi mode
3. Put all 4 500Gb hard drives into RAID 0+1
4. Put my operating system on one of the Cheetahs
5. Overclock the two 7800GTXs, the G Skill 2Gb RAM, and my 4800+ as much as possible
6. Put all my games on the other Cheetah
7. Put all my music and films on the 4 x 500Gb hard drives
8. Put any slow running programs (like photoshop etc) on the same Cheetah as the OS.
9. Sit back and play BF2 on a 63" plasma screen *drools*

I'd spend all that money on a car, insurance, nice flat, nice tele, nice cheap $1,000 pc and some weed, and put rest in for anything else.

Haha, jac006, your PC is awesome! Way over the top! But then mine is too Oh boy, 16Gb of RAM???? Jesus that would awesome!

I've seen your post on your Ultimate Comp before, and well I wanted to create a more down to Earth version with keeping in the realms of like Windows only really liking 2Gb, and buying stuff to see how it overclocks But I like your Idea of an 8GHz CPU

You would'nt even have to press the 'On' button, just think and it will already be running the game you want, scanning your comp using AVG, Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy for anything that shouldn't be there, making your lunch, AND doing your job for you! Haha, now that is worth $13,000

Just buy the comp...

And your ultimate comp doesn't beat a Quad Opteron 846 with the Tyan S4880 with a 64GB equipped memory with some TB HDDs and some 3DLabs 1GB video card

The asking price of that system would be HUGE. But then again, if you're as good as Shamino at overclocking, I suppose you would get that machine "given" to you God, I'd love his job

Well no need for that, I believe u. I said in my 1st post in this thread: "Yes there are comps like this, but maybe u would like to give a link to a web page where we can buy this mobo? Coz I don't think that they sell these kind of monsters in shops for normal users, only for companies keeping servers etc."

So really the link u gave didn't make any difference. But nevermind, just wanted to say that I don't think they sell these things to normal users, as I already said in the first post.
