Default what is your next....

What is your next rig going to have on it and if you dont plan on building a new one, what is your PC most likely going to have in a year or two?

Nice Case w/ watercooling and 700W Powerstream PSU
DFI Lanparty Socket "---" Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X4, 65nm(hopefully)
4 GB (2x2GB) OCZ Plats Rev 3 DDR2-677 (i fhtere are rev 3's and that is the ram amd's use)
2x SCSI 15,000RPM hard drives in RAID 0
Blu Ray or HD-DVD Burner drive
Blue Ray or HD-DVD Rom drive
g70 or newer graphics card
Nice Sound Card
[]D [] []\/[] []D [] []\[] speakers
Widescreen LCD low response time monitor
other stuff

I dunno most specs, but before Christmas I am going to get a G70 or R520. Yes, if the R520 smashes the G70, i may consider it.

I hate to break it to you, but even in a year or two that would still cost $3000+ dollars The hard drives alone would cost $2000+ dollars, so I really really doubt that is gona be your next rig.
