Default The Ultimate PC

Alright, I've got a challenge for some of you, I want your ideas of what the ultimate computer (at the current time) would be.

Some pointers:
Please no Intel vs AMD or NVidia vs ATI wars etc., I want your idea, not what you think of someone else's.

If you can try to get the locations and prices of the computer parts.




I'll have mine up within the hour.
-Mike
