Last year, a dual-Opteron system caught my eye, so I priced one out to see what I'd need. Of course now that same system is pretty much obsolete, but I thought I'd check and see how the price changed between then and now.
|Tyan Thunder K8W||1|
|Opteron 246 2 GHz||2|
|512MB Corsair ||4|
|Maxtor 250GB SATA HD||2|
|Sony DRU-530A DVD+/-RW||1|
|Samsung 193S 19" LCD||1|
|Enermax EG651P-VE Power Supply||1|
That's quite the change in price over a year and a half. It's stil a system that would be more than sufficient to cover my computing needs for the next few years. Naturally I'd probably want to replace some of the components listed above with newer items, which would no doubt bump the price back up. I wonder if two dual-core Opterons would fit in this motherboard...
