Default Top of the line computer

Well guys I basically have a budget of $3600 to spend on a computer i have read some other topics but none that have had as high as a budget as mine, I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to tell me the best computer build for my budget or show me a post with the same approx size budget out there.

Thanks,
Takzy

I think you should get a Dell, because they are the best


Just kidding about the Dell. Is gaming going to be your primary concern? Because that will make a great difference in what parts you should get.

You play 3D games like BF2 and FEAR? If you do, get your self an Athlon X2 4200+ CPU paired with a GeForce 7800GTX 512MB video card. Get a DFI Lanparty motherboard of your choice. Also be sure you have 2GB of RAM. OCZ would be your best bet on that, and be sure you get high performance stuff. If you have the money, get an SLI capable motherboard and run 2 7800GTX 512MB video cards in SLI. I think you might actually have the cash to do that. Also, get a high performance 10,000RPM or higher SATA hard drive.

Antec has some good cases out now. It all depends on what style you want to go with, whether flashy or professional.
