    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...
    Now this genuinely made my jaw drop!-wtf.jpg

    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 ?

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

    1TB SATA - MDS600 W/(70) | Ebuyer.com
