UK FIRM, VADIM Computers decided to make the mother of all gaming machines. <br />
The firm put plugged two Geforce 8800 GTX cards, water-cooled, into an Asus P5N32-SLI Premium WiFi-AP (1066 FSB Conroe) board, powered with Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 Extreme retail (4x2.66GHz 1066FSB 8Mb) and Patriot DDR2-1066 2x1024MB ELK series dual-channel kit memory. <br />
<br />
The firm also bunged in an Asus Ageia PhysX Accelerator. Plus, the machine comes with two 150Gb Raptor 10000 16mb E-SATA disks as system drivers and a 750Gb Barracuda 7200.10 16mb Cache SATA II NCQ drive for storage. <br />
<br />
You will also get a CDRW DVD Combo 52x32x52x16, Black Optical Drive and Pioneer 111DBK DVDRW Black. The sound card naturally comes from Creative labs 7.1 X-FI Extreme Music and it is all installed on Windows XP 64-bit.<br />
<br />
Before we forget the machine is packed in Lian-Li V2100B Plus Black CASE with complex custom laser cut window and water-cooling - the LiquoCool Antarctic TX Extreme - enough to cool the CPU, chipset and both 8800 GTX cards. If you think about it, two cards together have an astonishing 1.5GB of VGA memory. The Enermax Galaxy Modular 1000W PSU should be enough to power it. <br />
<br />
As for the price, it costs £4622.23 (ex VAT) or roughly £5400+ with the tax. Don't forget that you also need a display mouse and keyboard for it. So it will get even more expensive. <br />

I'd rather have a P5W DH Deluxe or Abit AW9D-Max, but that machine's no slouch. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

</div>I was thinking the same (P5W DH DX)...<br />
<br />
But what about a better sound card? The Xtreme Music is what I'm getting and I'm almost poor in comparison to that build

What is that in USD? That machine seems like it should be built for the HPC segment. There's no way that any mainstream user can come close to fully utilizing that beast to it's full potential.

I'm pretty sure with all the top components (4x Raptors, 2 24" Displays, etc.) it peaks on that site for about 10000 pounds

how much is that in american $ that post has been on engadget since yesterday so i checked it out and boy is that a awsome system. In America we have a companys like <a href="http://www.biohazard-computers.com/" target="_blank">Biohazard</a><br />
<br />
When i went to the digital life expo they had one of these in the nvidea booth "sorry i can't spell "nividea" that thing was ubber awesome the cabling was great and it was nice and lit up also and very good looking. <br />
<br />
when u go threw the whole site u learn alot about biohazard. They even use custom bios. 72 hours of testing. I know the 72 hours of testing is standard on every boutique system but for god sacks they write there own bios.

</div>4600 pounds is about $8500. You could probably build that same computer for $4500.
