Question number one: What are you planning on doing with this super computer of yours?

The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processing cores cross linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat and fourteen kiloquad interface modules. The core elements are based on FTL nanoprocessor units arranged into twenty-five bilateral kelilactirals with twenty of those units being slaved to the central heisenfram terminal. . . . Now this is the isopalavial interface which controls the main firomactal drive unit.



Just kidding with the above...seriously though...why are you doing this, and how much do you have to spend?

I'm also looking for a Terrabyte External Hard Drive. I've seen a few, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend any?

Buy something like this and put it in an external case. . .Buying one with a case would bump the price up a LOT. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822145164

How long does a thread laston this forum, because bulding a super computer may take me a while, and i'm planning on using Windows Vista Ultimate formy OS. Please don't use so many abreviations, because I'm a simple person and I get confused.

now i have the funds to begin building the best comp that i can, and i have no idea what I'm getting myself into. I'm gonna need for someone to guide me through the process of putting this thing together, because i read that many compatibility issues could arise. first i want to start by showing the chassis that i was thinking of using. if anyone knows of any better chassis that i can find or where i can find some cheaper please post the link or location i can find it. if you believe that one is better than the rest please explain why thoroughly.

The case is almost purely a choice....

I personally am looking at this one, even though the antec 900 would be just about with this one, if it weren't so expensive.

You should really give us a price range...

Every month? Meaning like, after two months, you could spend 1400 on the computer? I'm thinking that ~ 1300 can give you a pretty good higher end computer that will run almost anything these days.

Also, what are you going to try and use it for? I see you said anything, but its too general. What will you mostly use it for? Email? Games? ect?
