    Nah. The Ebay link is the Mini ITX case, not the "real" one.

    The case and fans were probably half the $12,000

    In a $12,000 build he used 2 $500 graphics cards and $3,000 of Hard Drives. Really? Who needs 80+ TB of hard drive space? 8 X 10TB drives.

    Hi,
    Exactly :)
    Priorities are pretty screwed up
    The only "porn" so to speak in this build is the case fans maybe and threadripper
    Otherwise gpu/ hdd.. choice was a blunder

    Well, some people have insane amounts of video content downloaded that they keep. I work with a few guys who have enterprise SAN's running in their homes with 48 hard drives installed.

    Edit: Notice in the above I said "some" people have insane amounts of video content. I did not say that "average" people need massive amounts of data. I'm unsure if they need 80TB, or 60TB, or 91.3TB as I don't know what they collect. But if they want all of their music stored in FLAC, and they download every movie and TV show they care about, it's entirely possible they could need something that seems ridiculous.

    Yep, 80TB is nothing really. 800TB on the other hand is a lot, but easy to fill too.

    I just finished creating ISO's of my software collection. Took me three months. All my Mac, Windows, and Linux software and OS' are now backed up and it took 4.6TB have my two 6TB drives in RAID 1 so I have backups of all my ISO's. Also have a backup on a 6TB external. Never thought I would see the day when I had over 6TB of data needing to be backed up.

    Are those the normal typical users? Do they each own $12,000 dollar systems?

    I think that's what Steve is talking about, not the rare exception to the rule

    My only backups are those I've worked with or created. Outside of that, if I can find it online and download it, I don't back it up. I've taught myself not to hoard stuff I know I don't need. In fact I'll go through old files and folders on a regular basis to get rid of stuff I've held on for too long. And really, all my critical work can be dropped on one drive. That's me.
