Life! Give My PC Life!: Fortune Magazine (of all people) identifies the parts to build a stunning machine. I didn’t grab the calculator, but as near as I can tell, they’re built something in the six or seven thousand dollar range, and that’s before the $4,500 monitor. They don’t even burden you with the details of putting it together — they just buy the parts. It’s like porn for geeks.
