Nice comp, man. Seems a little pricey, though, eh?

Not when you consider that that system would normally cost about $1700 to $2200... ;)

Good lord, I built a 2GB RAM, dual proc XEON with 480GB of HDD space for less than that...

Hrm, 1,082.00 USD = 609.035 GBP

I built my new PC for 1200 -
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual core 2.2ghz with HyperTransport (Socket 939) dual core.
2GB PC3200 DDR 400 RAM
2 x 250GB Seagate 7200RPM HDD
1 x 74GB Western Digital Raptor 10,000 RPM HDD
Sony Mulitlayer, Multiformat DVD burner
Ati Radeon 9550 256MB AGP graphics card
19″ Samsung SyncMaster LCD
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 1. I want the x64 edition :cries:

All inside an Antec Soho edition file server case with 500W Antec TruePower PSU. I built it on an Abit AV8-3RD EYE motherboard.

Runs pretty damn sweet :p

Yah what? I racked up a dual xeon box on Ebuyer UK for over a thousand...Dual xeon 2.8ghz, 2GB RAM, 500GB storage. Where did you get the parts?

My current computer was on a par to that (before I upgraded with nice shinies from my old PC) and I picked it up for £300 at a computer fair ;)

The real expense you've got there is office pro - which retails for over £200 inc vat. When you could get open office for free.

Yeah software does gouge out the greatest chunk of change (approx. $524)

I got the parts from, ummmm.. Sheesh, it's been so long I don't remember. I built the machine nearly 3 years ago.

I got all my software free, though, so that helps the price.

What "borrowed" it or VLK from work or something? ;);)
