To have the best of the best is not possible, well maybe for several months, because theres new technology, every few months or so. With your money just use like $2-3k and save the rest. It's really not necessary to blow $7500 on just a computer. And you probably won't use all of it's potential power.

why save? if he's going to make the computer at some point, he might as well get it now. There is really no point in waiting for computers, they are constantly being updated. You can say wait for a few months for something new to come out, but why? At the end of those few months, there will be something new that is going to come out soon. There is no time like the present!!!

If you really want something that is already put together, I suggest this:
http://www.alienware.com/product_det...de=SKU-DEFAULT

Quad core graphics
4gb ram
Duo Core 2 2.93 ghz processor
2.5 TB Hdd
7.1 surround sound

You wont be upgrading this anytime soon!!!

Good luck--if you have any money left over, fell free to send it my way
