    Problem is, you are spending quite a lot of money on hardware for no gain* other than a warm fuzzy feeling (said with my selfish hat on)

    *at least, I don't think you can get money from folding

    Isn't this aimed at the proffessional video editing/mastering world? I don't think this is marketed for the HTPC or budget crowd. I could see a card based on the cell specifically designed for encoding/decoding etc performing well over even high end graphics cards.

    If they could make good dev tools for the CELL chips so that programming for them was easy they could make great video cards. Imagine 6 of them on a video card. 6x1.5GHz and just 10-20W per chip.

    If only........
