What the **** kind of a douche would buy two Xeon 5960's for gaming?! 48 gigs of RAM? That's just a senseless waste of money.

It would play Crysis, and then some.

No need to upgrade for a while, that's for sure!

Possibly 2 or 3 Crysis's at the same time...

Definatley. That would be a waste if they only used that build for a year and made a new one.

I completely disagree, America is becoming more and more frugal, rather than the latter. If I had a billion dollars, then that must have meant I had managed my funds properly, and probably didn't throw money down the drain. It's just my opinion, there is no reason to waste money so senselessly, obviously people will disagree.
