    I agree totally. About 10K is max for a home computer. After that its just a waste.

    so AMD isn't a new processor? it is a new slot type that supports AMDs new processors which come out at the same time?

    AM2 is a new socket (example- 940, 939, 754, socket A) it will support only AMD cpu's made for that socket, it will not support 939 socket cpu's. if u can wait 3 months buy that

    AMD is a company that makes processors (Athlons, Semprons and Opterons) like INTEL, (im sure u mistyped that, u meant to say AM2)

    yes and if u dont want 2 wait:
    ok, that is what i configured... but i wouldn't recomend buying anything till yuo see what everyone else says about this system, incase i made some mistakes...
    theoreticly you could get a server with much more... but i think that would be a waste to you, and u don't seem to be the person to spend money with no reason...
    if you do want to wait for the AM2, you still could get ur display and speakers...

    but dont buy this until you see what other ppl say about it... im sure they would like to make many changes:)

    You wont last long on this forum if you keep posting nonsense posts.

    They're also overpriced for what they are. And you wont get the best of the best with them

    i work in business and marketing and ik that alienware is mostly all marketting, im sure they make some good pcs, but i think they are mostly marketing...
    i dont want to give them my business, i dont want to be spending the money on the brand... when i could build for cheaper & better (even though money isn't a factor, i still dont waste it that way)

    i like the what encore4more posted...
    i was hoping 4 some list like that... anyone have any feedback on that system?

    This is good but i can make it better:

    2 of these in crossfire.

    With this board.

    Then that SCSI drive he mentioned get two of those in Raid 0 and you should be set.
