James River Technical, Inc. (JRTI), and Velocity Micro today announced the immediate availability of a full line of high performance computing workstation platforms based on the Tesla parallel computing engine from NVIDIA.

…Consisting of three custom configurable models, the VSC Series is priced from $ 3,995 to $16,995 and will deliver from 1 to near 4 teraflops of computing power in a mid to full-sized tower PC. Preloaded with the NVIDIA CUDA development environment and a choice of Microsoft Windows XP 64-bit or Fedora Core 8, the VSC Series is the most powerful desktop computer available to the market and marks the resurgence of the scientific workstation in the market place.

I’ve mostly dealt with James River as a reseller of SGI gear. At the high end, over 3 TFLOPS peak; you can find more on the hardware offering here.
