Cell is definitly interessting, but i guess the price/performance ratio
will always be better for application specific designs (3D). However,
i can imagine that it's possible to put four cells on a single board
to get the performance of a current nvidia or ATI chips and I would
considering purchasing such a solution, even if it's $2.500

Unfortnuatly, the only currently availble PCIe single Cell card
(without RAMDAC or DVI) is $8.000
