    There already was a topic like this, I stick with Deep Thought.

    Also to Solaris17, why an SLI board and not use 7800GTX SLI instead of a single x850? Money wasn't an issue.
    Also if money isn't an issue why bother with 2 7200RPM drives? Get a raid 0 array of 15K SCSI drives, the bigger the better.

    Being an Intelbitch I'd have dual Xeon MP's on some expensive workstation board. (MP for the extra cache, money wasn't an issue) No quad or more since I doubt there are such boards that would support a fast GPU as well. In your case I'd go for some opterons, I've seen dual boards that could house 8×2Gb modules. Not sure if there are quad+ boards that have SLI or PCI-E 16 at all for the Opteron.

    to the banjoman i can only stick to hardware i know im way better w software so i have limited choices in my no money issue hard ware world and i dont whant to just go around and say hey thats more expensive its better im not tryin to be rued if thats how its comin across i just dont have the hard ware knowlage im like 17 and ......well ive really just started this is MY first comp i actually own it because i cant mod the family comp or oc it or upgrade it so here i am in my fantacys although they only go so far their the best i can think of what i meant before was duel i guess was the wrong word but i meant like 4 gig's of ram i meant dual because most comps ive seen have 2 ram slots duel would be 4 because i dont c how you could get 4 gigs of ram w out 4 slots but maybe i really dont know if theve made like 2 gig sticks yet.

    I'd say a Pentium M and overclock it like crazy, but it wouldn't be much good in other apps compaired to a nice FX-57. I'll have to chose a FX and wait a bit for Intel to improve the M series for desktops better. I will wait for the a R520's to come out in crossfire and get DFI's new board when it comes with the Xpress 200. Probably some XP4000 or Gold PC4000VX for ram. OCZ ADJ600 for the dual rails...two SCSI like Dan said, and some sweet cooling system. And all the other refinements like lights and pretty fans. :p But my system now will do me fine.

    Its so true aswell, you could spend thousands to get the "highest/newest" compnents, and a littel later they will be out dated. But the system would be so powerful, you wouldn't have to upgrade for a little bit. :D

    The system I said in my post is just a "dream machine" if you would say. But I am starting to build my real one now, that I always wished I had. As much as I would want the FX-57, I don't think I would spend a $1200+ on a cpu. If I had lots of money and no sense maybe. :D I just ordered a 4000+ and that was close to 600cnd, and thats plenty enought for me, my mom thinks I'm mad mind you. :rolleyes: But it is fun to think what you could build, but it is also fun to see what you can get out of your system now. And in most cases you can get pretty damn close to the same performance with one of these 4000 some odd $ machine with you $1500 one.

    Well to you guys like this, all you need to do is use your imagination.

    There is nothing out right now that I want because what we have today is just 1 generation too early. BUT, if I could get a combination like this, I would:

    Crossfire Mobo and quad-channel GDDR3 support for RAM
    2x R520 core XTPE graphics cards
    Athlon FX series X2 processor (a dual-core FX series) at 3ghz (practical for next-gen) each core
    8gb Quad-channel GDDR3 RAM
    8x 15,000rpm RAID 0 array 147gb Seagate Cheetas' w/16mb caches
    Sound Blaster Audigy 4 ZS internal
    19" .10 dot pitch DLP monitor
    7.1 dolby digital surround sound system, satellites each 150 watts, centers each 120 watts, subwoofer 900 watts
    steel case w/temp display, blue LEDs all-around, 5 5" bays and 2 3.5" bays
    Windows Vista Media Center 64-bit edition
    2x double layer Blu-ray-RW drives w/ 16xDVD and 56x CD read and write capability
    nitrogen cooling for everything

    Yeah, I'm trying to keep everything only 1 generation ahead, no more because then there would be no limit.

    Hey, the same as my post... :p

    My ultimate machine updated:

    8x Opteron 854's single core 2.8GHz (Dual core 875 only goes to 2.2GHz so no gaming performance)
    Tyan Thunder K8QW 8way SLI board with M4881 CPU add-on board (they actually make one ;) )
    32GB or so RAM Dual Channel (no need for more and the board supports 128GB if you want)
    2x SLI 7800GTX's 512MB
    2x Matrox PCI G450 MMS for 8 monitors and with it
    10x ViewSonic VP231wb 23" LCD's in 5x2 config on single custom stand
    4x SCSI Ultra320 15000RPM Seagate 146GB Cheetas through add-on card
    4x Seagate 500GB's SATA2
    A few 850W PSU's (Gonna need it, 800W just from CPU's and an amazing 530 Amps!)
    Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Sound (FireWire or USB since all slots are already taken...)
    Water cooling for all CPU's and GPU's (Maybe a few Coolermaster Aquagates or something)
    One big ass server case to put it all in which I'll mod myself and try to organize the heap of watercooling pipes going to 10 places...
    A huge desk

    Which all equals a huge power bill and huge performance... :D

    Well christ man, that's like this-generation but about $100,000 worth of stuff. To spend like that, for a definite stable PC, it'd be cool to see what it could do. One question though, why not an FX-57 for gaming? They're both rated at 2.8ghz and the FX-57 is by far the best processor out right now. Does that mobo only come in socket 940? Anyway, that's definitely the best modern-day PC built from hardware available now I can think of.

    The FX57 isn't a multi-processor CPU and you can only run one in a PC unfortunately. And why run one CPU when you can run 8 for 15times the price?? ;)

    I believe this is the motherboard you are talking about. It's an Opteron board though.
    [​IMG]
    I made this up back in like January. Only things I would change about it is that I would get this PSU, which I'm not even sure that would be enough power, and I would also get XP-90Cs instead. I kind of make believed some of this, like being able to run four cards, meaning two Crossfire sets. I figure it's not like anybody would ever be able to afford this anyway.

    Really my dream system would be the same as what I have right now except an FX-55, either a DFI LanParty or MSI Fata1ity (or however they decided to spell it with that dumbass 1 in there somewhere), OCZ PC4200 ram, another raptor to run RAID 0, and an x900 XT eventhough it's not out yet.

    Dr. Death, dude, dude....Can't people dream? You have no idea how many times I've done this through the years, I've even made pictures in microsoft paint of EXACTLY the hardware I want. If my hard drives weren't all broken or reformatted I'd post them but they're years old. I just think it's awesome that there are more people out there that think like this. I LOVE seeing ideas like this, especially ones that are based on technology that isn't out yet.
