Default Dream system???

Hey, everybody. This doctor wants me to build him the best and most advanced media center computer system available on the market that money can buy. Being a doctor, money is no object to him I'm sure. I would love to get people's opinion: If money was not object to you, what would be your dream system?? I am going to build everything from the basic components. Thanks for you input.

Why not just go buy a pre-built desktop.

Here's what you do. You make him a Q6600 system, GX2, 8 gigs of RAM, A raptor and the fill in the rest with a really nice looking case, then you charge him 5 times what it cost you in parts.

Parts
x5 Cost

That would depend on the purpose of this computer. If it's only a media center, he doesn't have to spend so much.

I know he wants to control his music, tv, video, he already has a DLP processor. He also would like to set up some security cameras as well. He would like some home automation as well. I told him if he gave me enough money, I'll figure out how to put a retina scanner at his door..lol.
