    A bit overkill? Maybe. :D
    Can it run Crysis? Definitely.

    23 x nVidia 295 GTX's in a single system designed for Folding@Home. It's a rendering farm specifically built for the project by Stanford University.

    In the video, it lists:

    17 in the rack (4 lots of four and a lone one at the bottom).
    4 are awaiting power supplies.
    2 in a home computer.

    It sounds like the lone one will be kept.

    It's not in a single system, there are like 7 different systems! And no SLI!

    Yea somebody on a Finnish forum said that it produces about one kilowatt more heat than a regular electric sauna stove. :eek: And a sauna stove is able to heat up a small room to 100°C.

    Seen this before, its interesting,
    People, (including myself) may think it must consume so much power, what a waste,
    However, he compared various other hobbies, and actually, its not bad considering it. :D
    I think its a cool idea, although, I still think its a waste, why not just give 2 to various people for them to fold with in their home computers, and so they can use them aswell. :p
