  1. I have 3-4K$ to splurge on a new PC...
    what is the best setup that I can get for that price range..??

    I dont want to build the PC myself, I'd want to pick the parts and then have a tech specialist build and test it before I receive it..

    I want an Intel i7 CPU and 12GB RAM..
    Win7 Ultimate for the OS..
    Not sure on the MoBo or GPU yet..
    Need a good GPU that I can connect via HDMI or DVI into a 60" HDTV that I will be getting later after the PC is setup..
    Possibly Liquid Cooling if its not to much of a hassle to maintain..


    AlienWare interests me... but i'm not sure if they over-price and over-hype their products..


    I'm looking for a high end, top of the line workstation PC that:

    I will be using it mostly for ..

    * Multiple VM-WARE Machines running simultaneously..
    * Multiple NIC cards for each VM-Ware Machine..
    * MultiMedia Editing: Graphics, Video, Audio, Flash, 3D Animating, Ect..
    * MultiTasking to the MAX...
    * Downloading Torrents Constantly / WinRar Extracting..
    * Browsing Web Ect..


    I wont be using it for...

    * Gaming
    * Windows Media Center



    So what can you guys recommend getting, checking out or looking into for my price range..??

    Are you looking to get a workstation graphics card? Or will a good gaming GPU suit your needs?

    As for the motherboard, ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI are very reliable brands.

    Since you have a huge budget to work with, I suggest that you wait a while for the hexacore CPU offerings from AMD and Intel to hit the market.

    They do. So it's a no-no. :)
