Lets have a Dream Machine showdown!

I think DMX would have a tough time competing against a modern super PC though... It's dual 7800GTX are nothing compared to tri GTX 285s or dual 4870X2s. Its two very last gen GPUs competing against three or four modern GPUs. Even a $130 4870 would handily destroy dual 7800GTXs.

8GB of ram seems impressive, but in DMX, its DDR400 and registered. The core i7 can use triple channel DDR3; the fastest DDR3 on newegg is  DDR3 2133.

However, the DMX would probably destroy 90% PCs sold today, thanks to Intel's pathetic integrated graphics...DMX has four cores, nearly 2TB storage. Thats pretty impressive



Is this build still around? I wonder how this Dual Everythiing build would perform now that App Multi-Threading and OS support has caught up? Plus I think it is the most expensive build ever completed. I also built a similiar machine two years ago from a discarded server at work, works very well.
