    I was looking for a software that could do that over lan or something. I did find one but was expensive and reviews said it didn't work great.

    Few ideas

    1. A monitor with S-PVA blacks, S-IPS whites and color reproduction, TN response time and refresh rate, and "retina" resolution (~8*4K for 24''), and eIPS price.

    2. Shared memory (GPU-CPU) for PC. Also, ECC as standard for all PC's.

    3. FP128 (quad precision) capable CPU (and GPUs), today's CPU's can emulate FP128 with performance in KFLOPS, probably.

    4. GPU and CPU that turns fans off when not in 3D. 0dB.

    5. (maybe offtopic) GTA-like video game with real models of Cars, Bikes... (Bulldozers, Bicycles, ATV's, Boats, Aeroplanes, Helicopters...), in optional first person view (like Far Cry 2), and RPG system (quests, leveling...)....

    I have used a couple for legacy applications, and with a bit of work they work fine. It may be required to set your IRQ in the BIOS.

    Oh yes. I'd take one that required maintenance!

    ViperXTR,
    Time for you to give nVIDIA a call and cash in.

    Dedicated hardware AI cards.
    I love my SP games, ever since HL1 ( never as good ) but I think AI cards would be a good step further.

    Understandably its something else that has to be upgraded, but maybe it can be done with software?

    I know this is semi-true, but here. I want Intel to come out with Haswell by New Year, most likely after that. I will sell my sandy bridge so fast, I want that new tech goodness :D

    I'm planning to upgrade my ancient gadgetry in near future and I've been twisting my arm about what will replace my venerable Vertex 60GB. I'm tempted to get rid of the bottlenecking SATA interface, that is, I'm looking at a OCZ RevoDrive 3 240GB PCIe 2.0 ×4.

    Butts!

    Ergo, I'm back to this thread with an open letter to Samsung:

    Needless to say I also want it. Even if only for its novelty factor.
    C'mon MSI, I know you had the motivation back then...

    GTX 690 with 3 slot cooler and 8GB memory (4GB per GPU).

    LGA2011 board with integrated highend FPGA for development purposes. I would pay a lot for one of these. (I am digital IC designer, FPGA/ASIC)

    I think 3DFX did this with their Voodoo IIs.

    Sounds like a neat idea... but with multicore CPUs it really isn't needed. That... and we really don't want Skynet!

    Some, if not all of these boards have passive cooling or allow it. The CPUs are roughly at Atom speed though (and yes they are x86 or x86-64).

    Yeah Atoms, VIA Nanos and maybe AMD Geodes using Mini-ITX boards, but I was refering to more powerful & efficient CPUs which won't need more than a HS (or a fan which is stopped if light tasks) without using WC nor any exothic cooling form.
