From here, it's pretty easy to tell that this system is sporting something special under the hood. In addition to the components already listed, this machine also includes an Asus Xonar DX PCI Express sound card, a 3Ware 9550SX-8LP SATA 3 Gb/s RAID controller, two Western Digital 300 GB VelociRaptor hard drives in RAID 1, two 1 TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s also in RAID 1, and four 1 TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s in RAID 5.
Also seen in the front are two Pioneer 20x DVD+/-R/RW SATA drives.
This particular customer ordered his machine with Windows Server 2008 Standard. Puget adds a one-year parts warranty and a lifetime labor warranty, bringing the machine's total cost to $16,338.89.
