intel stock coolers suck a big one... like seriously... where's the surface area??? even the bigger extreme cooler is junk... but the push pin thing is easy enough... unless you got a tuniq tower or something else absolutely huge so you cant get your fingas under it to push the pins...

If money was no object? why would I be constrained to one computer? Is it a newegg credit card? Can I only use the money towards a computer?

Well, if it were no object :

Intel® Core™ i7-965 Extreme 3.2 GHz 8MB Cache
1200w PSU with multi gpu support
Dual ATI 2GB HD4870's
6GB of Ram(DDR3)
Intel X-58 Socket 1366 Mobo
Vista Ultimate 64Bit edition
128x2 Solid State Drives
2TB Additional Drives
1 Dual Layer DVDRW Drive
1 Dual Layer Blu-ray Drive
30'' Monitor


*sigh* I would never leave the house.

why not x2's (i feel like thats what you meant.)
why intel's x-58, go with gigabyte's extreme
why only 2 ssd's, and go with samsungs 256gb ones
get some 1.5tb drives, or spinpoint 1tb's.
and 4 30" cinema displays > 1 30"
