I'm not gonna say anything. Well, apart from even if I won the lottery, I wouldn't.
I think it'd be worth the money just to be able to shout "are you SERIOUS?" at anyone complaining "it's not quite as nippy as it used to be" 10 years down the line.

On the plus side, every time someone asked how much that cost, you could stand up with hands on hip and announce in deep, projected voice
TEN THOUSAND POUNDS
That is ridiculous though. If you're talking games, you could probably get 80% of the performance for 10% of the price, and 90% for 20%. No reason to spend that much except bragging rights, and I prefer my forum signatures a little cheaper, thanks.

used to be fun doing that sort of customisation with an alienware build, adding in all the extras to see the laughable price.
That being said that machine looks crap ! 48gb of RAM ! are they serious ! :P

Old CPUs (x5690 rather than E5 series and old motherboard as well) and slow RAM (where's the 2800MHz DDR3?)... and come on... just water cooling? where's the Liquid nitrogen

In 10 years time, it may well be a bog standard PC!

£8333.33 ex VAT... I wonder if I could get this for work.
Unless you set it up as a SQL or exchange server, then you can kiss that memory goodbye.
48GB of RAM means you won’t run out of RAM... ever.

That price is nothing. Try customising a Mac Pro on their site.
I think I got it up to about £45k once.

I thought that line was a risky one to drop in too - I remember reading about 1GB HDD's and thinking "who on Earth would need that much storage on their home PC?!"

could be wrong here but aren't the 680's not the Titans ( Thought they did GTX 690 ) and not sure which model is the Titan
17th May 2013, 02:33 PM #14
You're right. The Titan is completely different from the GTX 680 and 690. It's essentially a cheaper Tesla K20.
