  1. If you had endless money what parts would you buy to make the greatest computer ever?

    You'll waste tons of time thinking about these things...

    I'd have a roomy SSD, a WD Caviar black 2TB hdd, a 6850, a Phenom II X6, an antec 902 (or similar, as long as it has fan filters!), 4GB OCZ reapers, and an HT Omega Claro Halo XT. Actually, I'd RAID 1 those WD caviar blacks. I'd get some quite fans and a Kaze master fan controller too.
    Also, I'd have a new mousepad, and headset. And a card reader.

    really a X6 rather than a I7 extreme?

    Same thing I was thinking, kind of far from "ultimate."

    I would get exactly what i have already except your CPU "supersmashbrada" and quad 5970's and obviously a much more powerful PSU

    There was a survey I saw last month. The question was like, "if you won xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx USD, how would your work status change?".
    About 60% - 65% said that it would not change.
    If I had endless money to spend on a computer...I wouldn't spend too much anyway.
    Maybe add a couple an extra backup drives to the list.
    EDIT: Oh but i'd definitely get myself a PCI firewire.

    The hdd's in my specs are actually for storage, I have an ssd raid format for os and games. Also using a 1200 watt psu, but my setup only pulls 670 watts from the wall. I'm sure it would be more if I stressed the vga's more.

    There 's no real reason to buy the high end stuff either way, other than to get kicks. I spend 4-6 hours at my pc working for my dad so I don't feel so guilty about my purchases.

    hello kitty really isn't getting the hole point of this topic, really only 670watt? that crazy so mine would be using hardly any power then

    Yeah that's typical load while gaming or doing something intensive like video rendering.

    You asked what I would buy, expect varying answers. If you wanted to know what the fastest system would be, I doubt you'd even need to ask.

    Lets see, what games do I play...Touhou, Osu!, Starcraft...I obviously don't need a seriously powerful system; why have all the bulk? I bet two 5970's would be hot, loud, and you'd want a huge case too. Besides, I'd feel silly getting ripped of and paying $1000 for a processor.
    The only thing i'm really stressing my computer with is video encoding, and of course, my hdd doesn't boot up instantly.

    True i apologize for not taking your opinion, but if you could pull off having quad gpu's you have to admit it would be a nice party trick to know you could do anything in the world on it

    Heh, alright, one of those ridiculous PCI-e array's.
    Then, once some new SATA 3 drives come out, RAID 0 for storage, with the 2TB drives serving as backup.

    I think they call those, "blade servers", or maybe it's,"supercomputers". In any event, it's not likely you'll be the inventor.

    Grumpy, meh, I call it tough love. I didn't want him to wander around suffering the delusion that that technology didn't exist. Right, aren't we all....(the next Bill Gates).........?
