Holy hell... That's wayyyyyy too much unneccesary power!<br><br>
I especially like the last question asked by a bidder inquiring as to how the OS recognizes 8GB of ram. The seller responds that the system has been future-proofed and maximized for the Vista OS... But he fails to mention that the $1000 that went into the quad-sli will be out the window when Vista arrives. haha... WOOOOOPs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Some people are just too stupid to own such high end equiptment.

I have to agree the system is waaaaay nice, although i think you can build much better for less money. Things i'd change:-<br />
<br />
1: Remove the totally pointless 7.5TB of storage and get 2x 150GB Raptors and stick them in a RAID-0 array.<br />
<br />
2: RW Blu-Ray Drive is daft, (most ppl don't even back-up the capacity of a DVD lol) get a DVD-Ram Drive.<br />
<br />
3: 8GB system ram is expensive and OTT, 2GB or maybe 4GB would suffice.<br />
<br />
4: Ageia Physics Card! ***! Sling that in the trash lol<br />
<br />
5: Hmm Quad SLI is very unlikely to be used to it's potential in the forseable future, 2x G80's would be better and cheaper.<br />
<br />
annnnnnd they can remove that slogan quoting it's the fastest PC in the world. Because it aint by a long shot....
