Look at the business desktop that I want to build...

SF

My boss approached me and asked if I would find a new desktop for the office. She said she would like it to last for a few years (5+) I believe and would like it to remain relatively "new" (upper level hardware)...

I just couldn't think of anything better than this...

What do you think she will say?

Surfing the web with no lag

I am dead serious about that...she wants a new computer in her office that can be the best possible that it can be

You know as well as I know that this system is overkill^90 but I think it would be funny is she agreed to buy it...

I know she wont...we are normally pretty comical together and she will see it as a joke...

I would love just to be able to sit down and use the machine for just a little bit...it is just a monster

Yeah right it is...the most insane part in it is the one folks don't know much about...

Core i7 extreme-insanely good CPU
14GB DDR3 RAM at 1333MHz-Insanely good RAM
8TB HD Space...insane insane
THREE THREE THREE!!!!!!!!! NVIDIA TESLA GPUs...

TESLA GPU = Super Computer Processing at home = over $1000 a pop = Chuck Norris Kick ASS

If you still don't believe me...look at the TESLA line here: Supercomputing at 1/10th the Cost

Personally, the over the top configurations look nice on paper, but never seem to really pan out in the long run. Instead, buy a new computer every 2 years seems like a better plan. 5-6 years down the road and you have gone through 3 upgrades...but have a modern computer still at a fraction of the cost of the over the top build.

I know you weren't seriously going to build this...but I still wanted to share my $0.02 opinion.

Due to the law of diminishing returns, you could probably build a machine with about 90% of the performance for substantially less. For instance, you could go with only 1 GPU instead of 3 (also there are less expensive video cards with fairly good performance). 4G of RAM would be able to handle most anything you would do with a "business" desktop. Doubt if your boss could use 8TB of data storage so 2TB would more than suffice.
