Yes its called skulltrail, and as far as I know CyberDruid is the only member on the forum with it.

Isn't that funded by grants? How can they afford to throw money at an employee with an excessive budget?

Skulltrail with two QX9770's
8 GB of FB-DIMM DDR2-800 memory
Custom LCS system (talk to CyberDruid)
9800GX2
PC Power & Cooling/Corsair 1KW Power Supply

This is a price range that I really don't have all that much familiarity with, but I'll try to help.

No it is in my contract. I made sure that before I worked for them I was allowed to design my own computer. They agreed

Thanks a lot. Where can I actually purchase these specs?
