So you want enough computer power to run the next Quake/Doom/Wolfenstein (whichever comes first) at more than 30fps? You're in luck, because IBM has the new computer for you. Thought your current rig is pretty swank with dual Xeon's or Athlons? Check this out:

On August 15, National Nuclear Security Administration head John A. Gordon will join Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and IBM management to dedicate the IBM ASCI White supercomputer, which uses 8,192 processors to perform 12.3 trillion operations per second.
Hmmm, I imagine there wouldn't be any support for this kind of setup under Win2K or XP - Hello *NIX.
