NVIDIA continues to promote its Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology. This time with the help of Dell and its Dell XPS 600 High-End machine based on nForce4 Intel Edition SLI x16 and full-speed PCI-Express for a couple of GeForce 7800 GTX cards.

  • 512MB of dual-channel DDR2-533

  • 160GB HDD
  • 17" CRT monitor
  • Microsoft Windows XP

All in all, the price for such a "standard" machine already reaches $3,100. You can order one for yourself here (note that the price for Dimension XPS Gen 5 is noticeably reduced).

If you need even more power, you might want to look at this configuration:

  • Dual-core Pentium D 840
  • Up to 2GB DDR2-667
