    Seems like a self-gratuitous thread to me. At any rate, my dream computer is one that can play all pc games currently out on max graphics & settings perfectly smooth...I don't think it exists currently, at least mainstream-wise. (Oblivion)

    4xAMD dual core Opteron 285(8 cores total;) ) 32GB of ram W/ 2 7950's just for the hell of it. And We can't forget the 147GB 15,000 RPM harddrive x4 with another 10 300GB 10,000RPM's and 2x750GB 7,200 RPM's with different RAID fuctions.

    All watercooled using my 100G fishtank as water source. It cools my PC and heats my fishtank :) Two in one.

    I really don't see any point in these threads, especially since this is about the 4th one....

    Well, the only reason I posted was because I already had a "dream computer" list saved on my comp, so it wasn't much effort for me to post it here.

    And does the saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it" mean anything to you?

    We endorse perversion and call it an alternative lifestyle
    We exploit the poor and call it the lottery
    We neglect the needy and call it self preservation
    We reward laziness and call it welfare
    We kill our unborn and call it choice
    We neglect to discipline our children and call it building self-esteem
    We pollute the air with profanity and pornography and call it freedom of expression
    We ridicule the time-honored values of our fathers and call it enlightenment End Quote.
    Hey I like what you posted. Seems for the age you are above average! Those are the things we honored when I was growing up. Nice to know some still see truths where the mess we call life today (which consumes our time and keeps us speeding from place to place) promotes self!
    Thanks for starting my day off with this read. Better than a Starbucks!

    LOL!....:D

    I dream plenty about computers....but nothing that could ever become real. I am happy with what I have now, except for gfx card and fans. I would want a server though (like a 1TB 15,000 SCSI RAID server type)

    Ku-Sama, is that really your computer? And did you buy it recently? If you did, it was pretty stupid (no offense), espeically since Conroe is right around the corner.

    its not really mine, well it is, but its not? i get to play with it for 2 weeks and see if its worth it to buy it, so its kinda like test driving a car.... for 2 weeks, but i might not keep it, BECAUSE of conroe and kentsfield.... but i must say, its pretty sweet, but i'm not even connecting it to the internet, i dont want any adware/spyware on it, its got nothing but games on it (even took off IE)... its got some KILLER preformace, but i might not keep it like i said, 4700 is alot of cash, but i do have payment plan options on it though, but like i said i have no idea if im keeping it

    This is a very old thread (7-2006). I'd suggest not posting in here anymore :)
