Now this genuinely made my jaw drop!
I was looking at graphics cards just now and for some reason decided to find the most expensive card on the site I was using...
What I found was this monster...
Do you think my boss will mind if I add this to my wish list...
What gets me is that I didn't spend much more than that on my new car recently!

Should've gone with a 3 way SLI - I hear people getting up to 800x600 on Crysis 2 with that kinda power!

You should be able to run SIMS Discover with that.

This is the sort of gear you'll find in the animator machines at PIXAR, plus probably a few in the render farm machines they use.

It kind of reminds me of the 3DFX Voodoo 6000. This was a beast of a card, probably about the same size too!
The thing is, you're probably going to need something like the Intel Xeon E7-8870 to make the most of it

Not sure if it would have the same amount of umph / power but
2 * GTX 590's in SLI
A SATA 3 SSD ( OCZ or OWC )
More RAM etc
Although that graphics card does have 6gb of GDDR 5 RAM ?

damn back in the day, i had a diamond stealth card with 2mb of graphics ram when the rest of my system only had 8mb and 120mb hdd... i've so not kept up!

You might want some decent storage space with that - 1TB is pretty good value at £23,000 these days...
