LoL Scarlett. It fooled me too. If I had $2000 spending money for a new machine? Geesh I don't know what I'd get. I'm not knowledgeable enough about hardware. I think I'd ask JEservices to tell me what to buy.

I havent checked the prices, but this is what it would look like:

CPU-P4 3.8Ghz
HD-(4) 72GB Raptor (10,000 RPM)HDs
MOBO-I will have to get back to you...
Video Cards-(1)512MG DDR2 AGP 8x w/ quad outputs
-(2)256MG DDR PCI 8x w/dual outputs
RAM-(4)1GB DDR Corsair or Hyper-X
Cooling System-3 seperate radiators: 1 for CPU, 1 for mobo, and one for the video cards and RAM
Sound Card-SB Audigy Pro w/ 7.1
Speaker-300wt w/ 200wt powered sub
Power Supply-No less then 600wt
Case-Clear acrylic w/ neon lights in each corner. Can be set either to music playing or via remote.


...and if you want me to include the monitors, it is easy...(6) 64" Plasma monitors.

The price would be around $2K for just the computer, but no O/S.
The price is $20K+ with the monitors.


I would need money after the purchase though...to pay for the divorce that my wife will want. I already spend WAY too much time w/ just 2 monitors.


Awesome thread by the way!
