Developer Station Revisited

I just built a developer station for the company with specs substantially identical to the one I built for personal use a few months ago  with an I7950 processor, 12GB RAM, 240GB SSD main drive, 1TB storage drive, and a Radeon HD5770 graphics card.  I economized a bit by going with an 800 watt power supply, RAM not suitable for over-clocking and a cheaper case.  The net result is a cost of less than $2,000 including a whole bunch of extras I didn’t have to buy for my personal computer like three brand new 23″ flat screens, DVI cables, UPS, keyboard, mouse, webcam etc.  Apples to apples, it was about 33% less expensive than my last build.  Amazing how fast computer prices fall.
