    How much is your budget and what do you mean by "fast"? Fast for gaming? Video editing? Are you looking to buy parts and put the system together yourself, or to purchase a pre-built system?

    We need more info from you I think.

    If you have that type of money, you might want to buy a computer from FALCON. They are the best pre-built systems you can get. Otherwise:

    Athlon FX 60.

    ASUS A8N32-SLI.

    2 x GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB.

    2 x 1 GB Corsair XMS with heatsink.

    PC Power and Cooling 850 Watt PSU.

    Digital Raptor 150GB at 10,000 RPM.

    Plextor 716 DVD Burner.

    Good Case.

    Any liquid cooling (don't know of any, I use air).

    This system will Rule! I wish I had 1/5 of your money, that's a huge amount. Good Luck!

    Personally, I would stay away from the Asus mobo's. Tech support from Asus is EXTREMELY lacking. The Falcon NW idea is good. Also, have you given any thought to a laptop? How about a laptop with 17" widescreen @ 1920x1200, AMD FX-60, 2gb ram, 2x 100gb 7200rpm SATA hdds-RAID enabled, Dual optical drives, tv tuner, built in wireless/bluetooth, Nvidia 7800GTX graphics?

    Personally, I will stick with Asus boards as I have found their tech support to be amazing. I rarely have problems, and when I do their tech support has always stepped up to the plate and taken care of me.

    But if I ever have an experience like it sounds YelloC4S did, I may change my mind. I tend to drop a company pretty quickly when they treat me like crap. So far Asus has treated me exceptionally well, fingers crossed.

    A8N32-SLI Deluxe

    ENERMAX Liberty ELT620AWT ATX12V 620W Power Supply

    ThermalTake Tai-Chi VB5000SNA

    Corsair-XMS 2GB (2x1GB) 184-pin DDR TWINX2048-3200C2PRO

    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic Sound Card (there are better versions of this that have 64mb ram on the card)

    Water Cooling-
    Zalman Reserator 1 plus

    Air Cooling-
    ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Blue LED Light Cooling Fan with Heatsink

    (2x) EvGA Gtx KO 512mb

    (2x)WD 36GB Raptor(raid 0)
    (1x)WD 150GB Raptor

    Logitech G5

    Floppy Drive
    You pick one.

    That's basically my system. The above should run you approx 4000. That leaves you with 1000 to buy a 24inch dell flatscreen. Check out Plextor DVD-writers but do not consider the trayless one they sell. This is not a machine that is meant for LAN parties as that case is roughly 50 pounds.

    That wish list is empty when I try to view.
