Question Whats your perfect gaming machine?

Hey guys, I was reading through your forums and just had to ask the most annoying question; what gaming computer would you build with an unlimited budget? Thanks for humoring me >=)

But Intel processors aren't really that good at gaming... I kid I kid

If we're literally talking about unlimited funds, I'd buy AMD, make a custom uber 1THz chip, and then discontinue it so I'd have the only one...mwahahahahaha

lol Bah Dum DISS!

Honestly, considering the damn money I've had to spend just to get where I am, I'm happy with my machine......as far as unlimited funds basically everyone would be getting the same computers.

FX-57 for me though not this old *** FX-55 garbage

couple 15k SCSI drives, and I'd still only get 1gb of RAM and just overclock the snot out of it....I don't need 2gb...........also with the way my downloading has been going lately, I'd probably make a 1tb server on the side

Lian-Li case for sure though, love them damn things.

Functionally elegant...well built...whats not to love?

Isnt the FX 57 only like 200mhz faster than the FX 55? i know thats a lot for AMD, and FX 55 can easily be OCed by 200mhz on air.
