Can You Build A Personal Computer With A Terabyte Of Ram And How Much Would It Cost?
At this time you can get a personal computer with a one Terabyte or more hard drive space. However the amout of RAM is no where near the Terabyte level at this time. If you would like to look at the systems with the Terabyte HD check Amazon for an initial price check and then your local computer stores. I hope that this helps.
There are some discussions on this (see link below, as well as other google searches). However, the cost is astronomical and not anywhere near a regular computer price.

Where would the Motherboard come from? What about the Operating System needed? From the research I did, which is limited, there is not an OS today for that much RAM. I would venture the answer is no today to build one. Maybe I am wrong. The processor architecture today I do not know if there are limitations on RAM with 64bit systems. Maybe there isn't. I know with 32bit OS it is 4GB of RAM is all that can be used. Any more is a waste of money.
Sticking to RAM the greatest stick I can find available for a personal PC and not a server is 32GB. So, with four slots, which is the most common and greatest for a motherboard, that means 128GB RAM. That is the greatest I found researching available motherboards stating that as a MAX for RAM.
A quote I saw shares, "the current largest stick of RAM I can find on one particular online retailer is 32GB. It would take 32 of these to reach 1 terabyte. At about a half inch per stick this brings us to a devoted 16 inches of space on your motherboard for a terabyte of commercial ram."
So, Corsair Vengence stick for 32GB is about $200. That means RAM alone would cost $6,400. Everything else using the top of the line probably arrives near $3,000. Bottom line appears to be 10K with a little hot rod stuff like water cooler and such.
