The screen is fine and the mouse and keyboard are ok. We aren't being elitists, we are trying to help him out.

This one is going to be used as a studio server. Now the next one has to be built for running multiple power sucking programs at once. Needs at least 4 gigs of ram (one of the programs i need wont run without it) and just needs to be fast, can't lag. Need dual or three monitors (<<Preferrably) wireless is a must, and so is room for expansion. needs to have 500 gb hd or more. the budget can be limitless. Needs to be able to run for days with a heavy load. And needs to have enough cache to maximize my ds3 line.

so please guys help... if u see by the last one i think i might've fuggered it up. Oh and lastly it needs to be a tower pc. And run on Vista 64 bit.

Try a better card, you need a balanced system. And you dont need 610watts. Grab a Corsair 550vx.

a balanced system? What about studio pc's that do nothing but encode, decode, production and host various progs? You don't need a $300-$400 card for that.

If I were to build it I would take fat clown's build and add two 320gb 7200.11 raid0 plus the another hdd for storage

I just want to know what Vince does to give him an unlimited budget! I mean, his last post included an alienware rig with a QX9770, 2x 4870x2, so we know he probably paid $6000 for that considering it is an Alienware rig.

Well lets see, there is inquiries as to what i do. Iown a few different companies. I own aptured Studios in el paso, tx. Which is a music production, and photography studio for up and coming models. We do portfolios, specialized shoots, and ad's for local and national businesses. I also own 3 insurance agencies (a life acident and health, and two property and casualty) and i own a used can dealership. All this was done before turning 21. I thank god, and my family for helping me get where i am. The alienware comp. was just above 7000 that is the one i use at the agencies. I know its a little overkill for what i do here, but i occasionally play games on it, while spending late nights at the office. The lenovo is an enrolling machine for when we are out of worksites, etc. So thats the sum of everything there. I like most of everyones suggestions.

Wow dude, all that before turning 21. Sounds very incredible and I'm sure it must have taken quite a bit of money to start, so I'm glad everything paid off for you!
