Not really, if i would make a huge wooden box, same size like tournament
machines those days. Some fans inside and say a cell type processor inside which
runs massively parallel eating little power, cost $20000, many would pay for it.

(oh for those who want to know why, a cell processor can deliver 250 gflops, as
opposed to a normal processor like 2.4Ghz A64 which is fastest single cpu
processor at the moment delivers 4.8 gflops)

Actually i'd love to buy a small cluster with diep at it. But i don't have the
money for it. At tournament machines you never make profit actually. It just
costs money.
