    I thought it would be a good investment and no chance for the ps5 to depreciate etc and since the listing was one of those with a charity attached I felt an obligation to do purchase

    It was between the ps5 or a personal server with a quad of platinum intel chips either that or the dual epyc setup

    had the workstation with 8 Volta gpus part of the setup was running with 40 m.2 nvme pcie gen4 western digits sn850 2 tb a piece and a raid 0 of 100 2.5 sata III drives with another raid of several u2 nvme 2.5 drives,

    and then thought no just get a ps5, from eBay for 25 grand

    Your problem with the server workstation is that you were going to go with WD hard drives. It's Seagate drives or bust. In this case you dodged a bullet and it was a good choice going for the PS5
