    I say this: no supercomputers or nothing out of the future.
    Motherboard supporting 2 NVidia 7950GTX video cards, 4 Dual-Core Intel Pentium Xeons with Hyperthreading (highest GHZ), 16GB DDR2 RAM (heat spreaders), 800W PSU, 3GB/sec SATA drive (let's say 250gig), RAID enabled, Connection supporting at least 10mb/sec down and 1mb/sec up, all cooled with 4 120mm fans, 2 intake 2 exhaust, PSU haveing 2 exhaust fans, and liquid nitrogen on everything :D
    Also have thet sound card with the 64MB of XRAM. I never heard of sound cards haveing RAM before, and since this one does, put it in :D
    Firewire and USB 2.0 slots and one of those things thatsits in the front of PC with firewire/usb for easy access :)
    Estimated cost: $30,000
    edit: also haveing one of those cards that has RAM on it and goes into pci-e 1x slot for 4gb page file
    Estimated useful life (before upgrading to be able to play that newest game on max settings): 10 years
    lol

    um 1 xeons arnt great for gaming.
    2 quad cpu rigs arnt good for gaming.
    3 the psu would give up the ghost in 10 seconds
    4 the estimated life would be about 1 year as the video cards can barly play todays games at max res and settings.
