Submit your $15,000 dream rig.

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Borrowed this idea off of another site. It's not as easy as it looks.

Rules:

The rig has to accomodate all the peripherals at once; no parts lying around unconnected (multiple headphones, tvs, and floor speakers accepted.)

No software included; only hard components and no adaptors.

You can include a desk and chair, but the rest has to connect to the computer.

Keep it within $1000 +/-

Why spend 15 grand when you can have a powerful system for less than that?

My mind isn't capable of such decadent thoughts.
Heck, I'd kill for a Q6600

You spent like $5000 on audio equipment...I honestly don't know how to actually find items that expensive.

I'd personally be rockin' 6x 30" monitors with my current rig (with some newer GPUs). Then use the rest to build a NAS and HTPC
