most expensive computer ever?

The most expensive would be the supercomputers, but regarding PC-architecture computers...
Their "4.2GHz" CPU is just a 3.6 that's been overclocked; I have a P4 HT that's running at 4.17, so 4.2GHz isn't impossible. Their solid-state hard drives are commonly encountered on high-performance servers. Their systems are simply overclocked regular machines with hardware RAM disks and other minor enhancements. It still doesn't justify the price though.

The most expensive PC? Then I can get an Athlon 64 FX57 OC'ed to 3.5 ghz! Even at 2.6 ghz, it would likely whoop a Pentium 4 a 4.2 ghz!

4BG RAM ?

4 64 bits processors ? It's only 1GB per processor!

Did you know 512MB on 32 bits systems lets you store as much data as 768MB on 64 bits systems ?

In fact, you should take 16GB. :P

but really is there need for 8gigas of RAM? ;D I have 512MB and worked fine till now, but some extra ram would be needed, maybe 2GB. ^^

It depends. Perhaps you have no use for 8GB on your desktop PC, but I could use that no problem (VMWare Server + several OS'es running heavy-ish processes and virtual appliances, databases, you name it). I couldn't live with just 512, my PC with the least RAM has 1.5GB (and I wish it had 4)

Err... sdram?... lol, i'm guessing by that stature of your comment about the ram just for the video... gddr3 is better than sdram on any graphics card wether it be a quadro or not!

i saw this invoice once, for a server for WorldMark. The total cost was $3,610,264. This is the kind of server that you run WalMart on.

Here is the link click here to see it.

Uhm... Its about 2m... its expensive because of maintenance!
