And why are we comparing a workstation computer to an enthusiast performance part? They're in 2 different markets. On another note, buy a less expensive skulltrail motherboard, and overclock your processors, whatever they may be, and you save tons of money compared to the workstation.
Sorry, but I just don't see the relevance of this thread.
I don't think your Market argument holds that much relevance here, in a way.
I mean, the skulltrail is based on a workstation board. Everything about screams Workstation.

So.. its a workstation platform.. for enthusiasts.. but for workstations.. enthusiastic workstation?
