Notice that these are 1.2GHz processors, and that no mention is made of a GPU. It probably sucks wind at Unreal Tournament 2003, guys.

click the add to cart button, and look at some of the options for this beast. you could easily get the computer to about $4 million if you maxed out some of their clickdown options.

Yeah, 72 top-spec GeForce FX's will run you a bundle of cash.

Yes. If you are the type that buys one of those machines, you'll have multiple huge arrays/JBODs instead.

Or a SAN. I imagine most of the storage is going to be on a EMC Symmetrix or something similar.
