I know it's not for desktops, but it's fun to imagine putting this in your rig, opening up the task manager, and then trying to max all the cores. I'm not sure I even have enough programs to be able to utilize half of it. I envy those researchers who get to play with it.

If you have the F@H clients set up right, they are pretty much
*Devours free processing power*

.. hope I didn't come off as one of those 'one up' posters, just getting my thoughts out there..

and..

Can it run Crysis... 2?
