* What are you going to use the PC for? Gaming. * How much is your budget? 8,000-10,000 $ * Where are you located? (aka fill out your profile) USA * Are you willing to buy online? Yes, I have before. * Are you going to re-use any parts from an earlier build? No. * Do you need other peripherals like a monitor, keyboard and mouse, among others? No. * Have you already bought any parts? No. I don't know how much I want to spend but - and I say this as a laymen - under the hypothetical that you have 8000-10,000 dollars to spend : What is the best possible PC you'd build? All the components down the line? *I am not interested in looks, just performance. I want a rig that can run Crysis perfectly. Something as good or better than this: http://gizmodo.com/5092059/falcon-northwest-mach-v-fastest-pc-yet-runs-crysis-at-60fps These are some of the parts I saw in the Falcon PC, that was said to run Crysis @60 FPS: 3.79GHz Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition An Intel X58 chipset 12GB of 1,066MHz DDR3 SDRAM 2 x 1GB ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 1TB 7,200RPM Hitachi hard drive; 80GB Intel X-25M solid-state drive. So for anyone interested, could you lay out the parts one-by-one that would make the best gaming PC w/ the money I'm willing to spend? Thanks~!
