Default an idea of what 10K+ should buy

surfed around newegg for a while, for all you renegade fans, this is an idea of what 10k can and should buy

Yes, yes i know its a direct copy paste out of newegg wish list, but thats a lot of typing to do, for all you with no logic, when the 2nd number is more than first for price it means more than 1, so yes thats 4 monitors, 6 raptors... etc.

P.S. for all you guys with too much money, this is also a handy list for the best components

i say dual 21 inch LCD's. 4 monitors is insane, the time it would take to get used to and actually figure out how to span 4 monitors just isn't worth it. and getting a 30 inch LCD where you would have to sit like 3m away to see the whole thing is a little over the top as well. for my $10k+ (more in australia) i would be wanting some removable drives as well as a RAID array. i sure as heck wouldn't be wanting an Asus motherboard, more like the LanParty Sli-DR Venus

nonsense, 4 monitors is as easy to setup as 2 and its a **** sight cooler than 2 porky mointors, esp if you get a proper stand and have them 2x2.

For the money I'd be looking at a multicore mobo H8DCE with dual 280 opterons.. Mmmmm numa :drool:
Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"
