D333, power pc builders and owners are the tech equivalent to revheads(our word for an exuberant motoring enthusiast). ie. price is immaterial, and quite often functionality too
Most of it is about showing off
These differ from "roll up your sleeves and pass me that coolant" overclockers, who will want to show off a 1337 clockspeed on an older/standard CPU.
@Q >> having helped build a few of those, I can tell you that not one of them payed anywhere near full price for one. But any further question you may not ask, especially when 'the law' is around *winks at D333*
I was offered one, but declined due to my thorough dislike of Intel, especially after recently reading they axed 5000 managerial staff..... taking total lay-offs to nearly 11,000 over the last 3 years(their target being 15,000 by circa 2009)
Doesnt that want to make you race off an buy an Intel product ?? Not me.
