UK FIRM, VADIM Computers decided to make the mother of all gaming machines.

The firm put plugged two Geforce 8800 GTX cards, water-cooled, into an Asus P5N32-SLI Premium WiFi-AP (1066 FSB Conroe) board, powered with Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 Extreme retail (4x2.66GHz 1066FSB 8Mb) and Patriot DDR2-1066 2x1024MB ELK series dual-channel kit memory.

The firm also bunged in an Asus Ageia PhysX Accelerator. Plus, the machine comes with two 150Gb Raptor 10000 16mb E-SATA disks as system drivers and a 750Gb Barracuda 7200.10 16mb Cache SATA II NCQ drive for storage.

You will also get a CDRW DVD Combo 52x32x52x16, Black Optical Drive and Pioneer 111DBK DVDRW Black. The sound card naturally comes from Creative labs 7.1 X-FI Extreme Music and it is all installed on Windows XP 64-bit.

Before we forget the machine is packed in Lian-Li V2100B Plus Black CASE with complex custom laser cut window and water-cooling - the LiquoCool Antarctic TX Extreme - enough to cool the CPU, chipset and both 8800 GTX cards. If you think about it, two cards together have an astonishing 1.5GB of VGA memory. The Enermax Galaxy Modular 1000W PSU should be enough to power it.

As for the price, it costs £4622.23 (ex VAT) or roughly £5400+ with the tax. Don't forget that you also need a display mouse and keyboard for it. So it will get even more expensive.
