    I would buy a custom built Alienware system worth about $8000.00

    One thing

    Lookin' good, Spartan, except I've read that those 5450's are notorious for problems with the wireless signal to the rears. My 5500's are purdy neet! Wires be danged! :angel:

    I don't know, and I hope I never get it. I'd hate to have to stop dreaming.

    Its almost a pointless question, pretty much pick the most top of the line hardware out there and say thats what you want.

    Dual core laptop that has 2GB+ of RAM and has 5 hours plus battery life, includes Blu-Ray RW drive, Windows Vista and built in videoconferencing camera. Weighs nothing and comes with a backpack specially designed for it.

    Also encorporating some kind of built in Wireless Broadband from Vodaphone or O2 or something as well.

    Oh, did I mention PCI Express graphics and maybe the option of taking a second hard drive as well....

    This is what I'm dreaming of, and I will have it soon! :bounce:

    Conroe E6700, Radeon x1900xt, and a unknown motherboard,
    added to the best of the stuff I have now.

    I would have bought the 1900xt, but my DualSATA2 is kinda on the fritz. I would have a i975 modo now but Conroe support is very ify. Conroe will be out in Q3 this year. If you don't know Conroe read this. It will be better than Yonah, here's a Jonah on air running with a FX60 on vapochill. A Conroe on water will be amazing. :)

    Mirob: I tend to stick to the wimpy 'victimless' piracy where the item is duplicated. Your piracy of entire computers is hardcore! Do you have a wooden limb and/or eye patch and/or parrot?

    My dream system is this:

    Intel Pentium 4 processor 3.2 GHz

    4GB PC3200 DIMM Kingston RAM. (2GB x 2)

    ATI Radeon X900 AGP(default, NOT INTEGRATED)

    Dual CD-RW/DVD-RW 50x speed write.

    5 fans for cooling plus water cooling system

    500w psu

    Windows XP Home(kinda like it :cool: )

    This is probably worth around $4500, but i dont have a job, so it may nver come true :(

    Oh well, at least the dream is alive :cool:
