Is it that difficult...

to buy the parts and build your own Bitcoining machines? Building a PC is tinkertoys these days.

All they are is a high spec PC that has massive multiple video cards.

The high end ASUS or Gigabyte motherboards support at least three sometimes four 3 gigabyte video cards in crossfire or sli configuration. Add some liquid cooling, overclock it, etc

You can get the software free from SourceForge.
