I think you did pretty well. All he needs is Quad (make sure to ask him to fold lol)

edit: plasmas aren't meant for PC's. an LCD is better (or a projector)

$1500 would go over his budget, the processor only cost like $979 and even on that he could get a E6600 with the same cache, FSB, and core.

Intel should give people who fold discounts on the QX6700 ^_^. Anyways, like I said, if you are indeed looking at spending that much on a rig, check out my signature rig. Buy that, with perhaps an ES QX6700 opposed to the X6800 if you perfer the 4 cores, and get phase change and put that baby under ice. Alternativly, you could go the water cooling route and get really nice watercooling, and buy the BFG 8800GTX's that already have the waterblock on them! Anyways, no matter which way you go, make sure you have an sli bridge!

Sorry, but I find these type of reactions immature. If he says he has $5,000, give him the benefit of the doubt!

Just my two cents

My recommendation: Get the best monitor you can get your hands on! (30" Dell or so). Then use the rest to get a good rid.
Because someone with $5,000 to drop on a computer should make an efford to type in complete sentences and capitalize. If you read the whole thread, his story doesn't add up.

Yeah, but that's on newegg. Tigerdirect and other websites have it for $1100. Still over budget but not as much. Newegg seems to be doing some price gouging lately...

Why is it always a number like 5,000. Why does no one use say a number like 10,000?
