May I recommend that you don't get a dedicated machine for chess and use Google Cloud?

How does that actually work? Can you install your programs on their systems? I can image that would get very expensive for long analysis on big hardware.

I just spent a few minutes looking at that option and it appears to be too expensive for lengthy dedicated service

What the hell are you talking about 2990WX is $1750. With the board, memory, case and everything it is still well below $3000.

It would cost ~5k or a bit more to have a shop build it for me.

Milos is probably talking about the cost of building a system himself. I don't have those skills or knowledge.

If your footer actually means you have a PhD, then you are smart enough to watch a youtube video and build your own system.

Theres very few things to screw up when building.
