This price may be OK for the videocard-class GPUs,
but sounds underestimated, at least for Fermi Tesla.
Last I checked, a NVidia S2050 pizza box with four Fermi Tesla C2050,
with 448 cores and 3GB RAM per GPU, cost around $10k.
For the beefed up version with with C2070 (6GB/GPU) it bumps to ~$15k.
If you care about ECC, that's the price you pay, right?
