RAM is a bit cheap, also why not 3 of the catleap IPS monitors? tongue.gif

Also I would go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227765

I don't trust OCZ... I think its more baller if you make your own 1TB SSD out of 4 256GB Drives and an LSI RAID card...
And that Samsung RAM OC's like a beast and its low profile...perfect fit

I'd start off with a case mod something like this: http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=990265

Then:

-i7-3930K.
-This bad boy; Asus R4G-Z. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131805
-Not sure on the GPU. Needs to be fast for CAD programs; Nvidia cards suck for that, so Crossfire 7970 Lightnings it is.
-Maybe 12GB of G.Skill Snipers. Too lazy to look up a good RAM set.. but ideally DDR3 2000 7-8-7 timings.
-3 Samsung 830 256GB SSD's in RAID 0+1 (because why not).
-Perhaps a 2TB HDD.
-Water-cool the dang thing.

Well, I would have this as my main machine:
700
I'd have the 256GB SSD as my system drive, one partition for windows, one for Linux. The two 512GB SSD would be in RAID 0 for all my programs and games. The 300GB Velociraptor would just be a scratch disk for recording/editing video and audio.
+ watercooling loop probably from DangerDen
+ Keyboard Deck 82
+ I'd just keep my G9 mouse, it's served me well.

Then I'd have this as a media server/ dedicated LAN server for some vidya games:
416
The SSD for OS, a 5 disk RAID 6 for media and documents. I'd have a KVM switch to control it from my main machine.

I'd also have a TV like:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889005128
hooked up to my main machine to watch movies and stuff that are stored on my server.

And I'd have a Nintendo 64 USB adaptor like this
http://www.amazon.com/May-Flash-Controller-Adapter-Nintendo-64/dp/B002B9FIUU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333198497&sr=8-1
attached to my main PC so that I could play old n64 games at 1440/1920x1080 through an emulator on that TV.

Yeah, that's pretty much it.
