There should be an image here!I haven’t been much of a gamer in years. A combination of different interests and being married have a lot to do with it, but the fact remains that it’s simply not a part of my life any longer.

This being said, there is just something unbelievably awesome about a computer tower running water cooled goodness at a price of roughly $17,000. Yes, that price is not a typo. That is the cost of the behemoth described in this piece. Bundle all of this with the addition of an XBox 360 and only good things can come from this massively expensive machine.

Dual-CPU Intel Xeon, 12 Gigs of RAM, and four SLI EVGA GTX 480 video cards dictate this is one screaming machine. Did I also mention the inclusion of an XBox 360? Sorry, just had to toss that in there one last time.

Obviously for those of us who are sane, this is a total dream and not really something we can justify for our daily computing needs. This is a high end gaming machine, not something to run MS Office on. Dreaming aside, this is one PC that I would love to get my grubby mitts on for some testing. A guy can dream, I guess.
