LOL - I'm going to start a thread called:

"I HAVE $10,000 BUDGET TO BUILD MY NEXT PC"

I wanna see how much you guys will argue over what components someone else will get. LOL

Actually I saw in the latest edition of "CPU" magazine a $2,000 dollar custom case paint job... It looked pretty sweet, but isn't that price a litte steep? Well, not for a $10,000 budget... : )~

yeah it is quite weird, most 17" LCDs these days wont let you past 1280x1024 with the drivers installed. My dads 15" laptop can only do 1024x768.
