Submission + - What Does A $16,000+ PC Look Like, Anyway? (justechn.com)

justechn writes: "Tom's Hardware has an article about custom PC maker Puget Systems had just finished a custom $16,000 PC for one of their clients. So what exactly goes into a $16,000? How about:
  • Four quad-core Opteron processors
  • 32 GB of memory
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Asus Xonar DX PCI Express sound card
  • 3Ware 9550SX-8LP SATA 3 Gb/s RAID controller
  • Two Western Digital 300 GB VelociRaptor hard drives in RAID 1
  • Two 1 TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s also in RAID 1
  • Four 1 TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s in RAID 5.
  • Puget went with MagiCool's Xtreme Nova 1080 radiator
  • Nine 120 mm fans
  • Four Koolance CPU blocks
  • Koolance combined pump and reservoir unit
  • Cooler Master Stacker 810 case

In addition to all that hardware it also runs very quiet and very cool. The temperature of the CPUs is 36 C at idle, 45 C at load."
