    Well the most basic model has a single 7600, but you can opt to have two 8800s in SLI if you're rich enough. That would be one kick ass rig.

    The cheapest you can make it is $2,392, but that doesn't have a monitor or keyboard and mouse or speakers, and the performance isn't that amazing.

    Edit: most expensive is $10,259... but admittedly that will give you two copies of MS Office!

    That is true. But in order for this to be a "quadfather" it has to support the 4x4 platform. Mainly 4 CPUs and 4 Graphics cards. If I had 10500 to blow on anything and I wanted one bad enough, ID get it, just so I dont have to mess with all the headaches :)

    PS In no way am I stating I Dont love building computers, I do. I am just saying this would probably be a biach to build

    Until a couple of years ago a would worry about opening up a PC, now I've done it on so many PCs that it makes no difference to me, I've never managed to break anything inside a PC. So I can understand that a lot of people would want a quick PC but would be scared of doing it themselves. Plus, on such an expensive PC, if you break something building it it's going to be very annoying to put it nicely.
