Well I just built my first pc system but money was a object but I know how to shop so I got a AMD 64 3200 with heatsink and fan for 217.00 delivered.
Since you say money is no object do you mean your looking to get the best parts on the market?
It would be easy for me to pick out the most expensive parts to date but is there any money limit?
I will go ahead and say what I think you should do if you want to spend around 2000.00 for a new pc.
I would go for the AMD 64 FX for one. AMD is a great CPU and there cpu's run so much cooler than Pentium or Intel.
My CPU runs at 104 farenheight all the time.
As for a video card this one seems to have good reviews and I like it. I love ATI cards and use them in my pcs!
The ATI all in one Wonder cards are also good but if money is no object here is a card for you. Also made by ATI:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-102-468&depa=1
As for a hard drive you will want it as big as you can get it(if no money is a object wish I had your money)
Here is a very fast sata hard drive 400gb:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-148-063&depa=1
And for ram I dont know yet as for a motherboard but I put in a MSI KT8 FIR and it accepts pc3200 and pc2700 so here is a 1gb stick of good ram I suggest 2 1gb sticks of it.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-221-004&depa=1
These are just a few ideas so far tell me what you think. Im sure others will want to have there say in this so this is just my opinion.
Here is a nice lcd monitor!! Great for gaming, maybe if you want to go all out you will get that video card I linked to and two of these lcd monitors to make a dual monitor system?http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc....-001-160&DEPA=1
Hope you like these items! I will say were here to help to the end of your pc making! If you need any help just ask!
You asked for a sound card I suggest that you get the best motherboard possible that has 6 channel audio on it. Thats what mine has and its great! Or spend more and get 8 channel audio?
Here is another good part. A nice dvd burner/cd burner take a look:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-152-028&depa=1
I would go for XP pro OEM version here is a link:http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc....-102-153&DEPA=6
Here is a link to the AMD 64 Fx-53 CPU at newegg:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-103-459&depa=1
A good motherboard with good features and 8 channel audio:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc....-131-517&depa=1
I would go for a water cooled case to make sure all of these fast parts stay going long and strong:http://www.xoxide.com/watcoolcas.html
Well I hope maybe I have helped a bit. I will stay in touch see you around.
