Can you belive it?
but on a more serious note...is this really necessary? do you think they're overdoing it just a little bit right now? im trying to keep an open mind about how computer and technology are limitless... but 5 terabytes?! how much better can the quality actually get?

is this what youre talking about? if so, its not 5 terabytes. far from it. technically, if people could get it working its 2 gigabytes of video ram. However, no-one has been able to get it running ad have the computer recognize all four gpus, only three. This is overkill, but if you have the money and are willing to work with buggy drivers, go for it.

Gigabyte are producing that board already, it is hard to come by though seeing as alot of people don't need that much power.

Having four GPU's in one machine doesn't leave alot of room for other expansion cards. I can see motherboard form factors having to be redesigned or a new form factore brought out altogether to accomdate this new Quad SLi jargon.

They built it with a Dell? What were they thinking? I would have went with something like Falcon Northwest or Voodoo PC instead of friggin Dell.

Dell could put a flux capacitor on the mobo and send me whizzing off to the future and I still wouldn't buy it.

Dell has impressed me. A project I am working on at work is using Dell Precision 380's. The case is very nice, they are equipped with 2GB's of RAM, 4 hard drives in RAID 5 (around 230GB), nVidia PCI-e card (not sure of the model) and an Audigy 2 sound card. I forgot to check proc speed but I know it is an Intel so I am assuming around the 3GHz mark. They also came with 2 beautiful 20 inch LCD's. Very impressive. The only think I do not like is their use of plastic inside the case. Makes it look cheap.
