I was just looking around at what the typical gamer PC would look like. I think it is amazing that you can by an 8-core processor for under $250. That is just absolutely amazing!
Then I took a look at RAM density on server systems over at the ole DELL site. There are many server systems with over 32 GB of RAM capacity at very reasonable rates. In fact they had systems that could hold over 100 GB of RAM. That is a game changer when it comes to thinking about how you architect certain systems.
