    Well, I have an ongoing unique project I have been working on for a while. I think I need A little feedback just to keep me going on this.

    Lets start with current stats.

    Corner Type glass top desk:

    2x Zotac GF8200-c-e AMD M-ITX (one per desk for now)
    4x 2Gb x 2 Corsair XMS2 800 RAM (2 sticks per M-ITX)
    2x Amd Athlon x2 7750 BE @ 3.0GHZ
    2x Thermal Take Spin-Q Air Coolers
    4x Seagate 1.5Tb HD (2 per M-ITX)
    2x 350 WATT Power Supplies
    2x 22" Viewsonic 1920x1050 lcd (Under Glass top, 1 per top)
    2x Vista Ultimate 64 bit/server 2008/Linux w/ Kerrighed clustering

    Control Tower/Gamer Rig:

    Cooler Master Elite Case
    2x 120mm Fans
    2x IDE CF card readers (PCI cover type, For Booting and installing new OS distributions)
    1x Pico LCD
    2x LG Super-multi drives
    1x A-Power 850 Watt Power Supply (Serves ME well)
    Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P motherboard
    4x 2Gb Corsair XMS2 800 Ram
    Phenom II 940 BE @ 3.4Ghz
    Thermal Take Spin-Q Air Cooler:mad:
    1x ASUS ATI HD 4870X2 XFire @ 988MHz Core OC
    1x Seagate 1.5Tb HD
    Vista Ultimate 64 bit/Server 2008/(Linux w/ Kerrighed clustering:banghead:)
    1x ACER X233H 23" widescreen 1080P Monitor

    Now lets talk About Additions.
    First, I am Probably going to build the Gigabyte board into the desk like the Zotacs. Second, I have plans for an addition of 6 more Zotac M-ITX motherboards. 4 of which are the GF 8200-c-e (It can handle the Phenom II:D), Two of which are the last to add Zotac GF9300-d-e M-ITX S775 With Q66 Processors. Thse last two are realyy so I can add two Tesla GPU processor cards (one per desk). Under almost any clustered Single System Image clustering platform, this compilation of motherboards and all the hardware attached to them is is recognized as ONE computer. Of course, I am still learning this clustering processes right now. Using three motherboards and eight processors is not an easy task to overcome when load balancing is concerned.

    :confused: yet?

    Enough of My blabber.................... Any Comments/Suggestions/Questions

    Nah not really. No hurt neck. the monitors in under the glass are only for monitoring specific processes, such as download managers, Media players (not for movies/videos of course), A.I. Interface, Drawing (via Infrared touchscreen underlay), the list goes on. The main monitor is in the corner upright. This is for obvious porposes of course (No neck pain). Although tis build is quite costly, to me it is a form of ART..... Build them and they will come!
