Especially the workstation with 6 PCIe x 16 slots/ :headexplode:

Two nvidia nf200 chips this one.

PCI-E is not only used for GPUs

plus PCI-E 16x are compatible with 1x, 4x and 8x etc..

Isn't the 8800gt a single slot card? I can't remember if mine was, but that would be a beast of a folding machine running 6 of them.

Speaking of cuda in the other thread if nvidia apps do become more common place a workstation built off that board would be a powerhouse. Makes me wonder what Apple is gonna do with nehalem.

Bad ass stuff. Depending on the amount of eSATA ports this board could end up on my short list. Too bad it doesn't have a PCI slot anymore...

Yea and no floppy or ide connectors. :)
