What is the best PC/Workstation you have ever encountered, be it yours or someone elses. Mine was from a guy I was just working with who has connections with a custom pc specialty shop or something. Most of his hardware had been custom made so it allowed him to do some trippy shit. It was something like this:

(2) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.88Ghz (1) Custom motherboard (2x SLI ready; 4 PCI-E ports, supports 2 cpu's) (4) Geforce 7950 GX2 Video Cards (2) Sony dual-layer dvd burners (1) Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro Sound Card (1) Thermaltake Toughpower 750 watt psu (2) Barracuda 7200.10 750 gigabyte hdd (8) Ultra 512mb PC800 RD ram 800mhz memory

Thats some of his specs he e-mailed me. He got a deal but still ended up paying close to $10 000. Waste of money... I think so.

I'm pretty certian that you can't run two Core 2 Duo's on the same computer.

Secondly, the 512mb of PC800 ram seems severly out of place.

Uh, No.

Core 2 Duo's are made for single processer configurations last i checked, and i don't believe for a second that he has a custom motherboard. Also, why would anyone want RD ram anymore (assuming it would even work with a Core 2)?

Sorry, but that guy told you a load of crap.

But anyways, best workstations i've used was a dual Xeon setup, not sure of the exact specs, but it was pretty fast. Second best would have to be a 3.8Ghz P4 machine.

*cough*

Intel chipsets haven't been compatible with RDRAM since Willamette's day. That guy didn't just sell you a bill of goods; you got the whole bridge.

LOL, yeah, he sure did pour it on thick. Sounds like he has a future in used car sales! 4 7950, noooo wayyyyyy. LOL Best work station is all relative. Kinda like asking what's the best shoes in the world? or where is the best place in the world to live. Too many variables to answer such a blanket question. With that said I'm happy with my home network now. I can't really think of anything else I need to make it any better, sure better hardware, but my needs are being sufficiently met and it's very comfortable little room to boot that I spend alot of time in. You can only chase the latest and greatest so far.
