That is a bit of a beast of a rig for anything other than hardcore gaming. It should certainly excel at the tasks you asked about (overkill in fact).

Um? Its got a Tesla Card And 2 Titans... I mean... Titans are not really a gaming card, they are just nudged down Teslas in reality. The reasons for the wite trim is i can see inside it w/ 0 lights on in the basement where this is going to live incase i need to trouble shoot something not working right. I would expect this to last 8+ years as well as be able to be set into a cluster of some spec systems at same point when its long outdated.

Understood. Drop the Tesla and it is a super-gaming rig. Given software that can take advantage of the CUDA cores you have, you can certainly crunch massive numbers.

If this meets your needs, then drive on and have fun!

Yeah build your own - you can get about the same system for FAR less money than you would going through a pre built vendor. If you're doing pre built I personally like Falcon Northwest systems (though I don't own one, the Tiki is on my list of things to buy if I win the lottery).

I had a Falcon about 2 years ago, dropped it when i was rock climbing, surprisingly shit survives that only to be killed later that day by a 1 hour bus ride back in wich i had it in the cargo rack and it rattled until it fell of a phew shattered the bottom of it.

Anyways, I just went though falcons Configurator and they only have 3 way 780 TI 3gb... If you know where i can pick up 8+ NVidia Tesla C2070 6gb then by all means i would build it, but Afaik I would have to buy alot more commercial then my given budget would allow. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

Yeah most system configurators will only allow for 3 way, if you build your own and go with an XL-ATX motherboard you can do a 4-way SLI.
