More about most expensive homebuilt ever
  1. Can Anyone beat it? (More expensive wise)
  2. I think the 8 core Xeon is a server chip. Also, none of your links are clicky
  3. Who says you cant use a server chip on a desktop PC? Its been done before.
  4. Oh and that CPU is not a 1366.
  5. The Op said 'no server parts allowed' in his post, other than that....................... :P
  6. No server pars allowed, besides his processor...
    Anyways, just sort all the categories on newegg and go for most expensive.

    Even funnier, the OP is the same person who then said using server parts in a PC has been done before. Forumite, contradict thyself.
