Default State of the art

How much would a computer cost if you were to build it that had the BEST of everything possible?

I was thinking about this earlier today. I figured that a whole rig would cost about $5k, but thats with a nice monitor, keyboard, lazer mouse, speakers. Thats also with dual SLI 7800GTX, FX57, 2x 74GB raptors, 2GB high quality RAM, water cooled, etc.
