honetsly for that much money, and the ideas you first came up and your lack of computer knowledge. i think you would have a heck of a bad time putting it together. youd be better off with the latest XPS w/ all the upgrades and youll have good coverage (dont hate me guys) i can already see you using a extra strength magnetic screwdriver putting all the peices together or not connecting a tube in the water cooling system and totally destroying the system.

just because he may not know much now, doesn't mean he is incapable of knowing a lot about PC's. the best way to learn is to build it and tweak it yourself

empty shopping cart, also my comment before was alittle ignorant i admit. i learned about pcs by ordering it and building it myself. but if i had money like that before id want to spend it once and get it right the first time and get the best quality and customer service possible. i.e. dell (my friend has a XPS gen 3 or somthin like it, he got a virus and he had to completely reformat, he called dell people they came same day and did it all for him and didnt put on the dell software). but if you do build your own system id recommend the system boomstick666 has. you should PM him and talk to him about it.
