Well folks I have gone through tigerdirect.com and am posting my planned new system specs along with prices... tell me what you think.

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nVidia Socket 939 Motherboard..........229.99
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ / 1MB Cache / 2000MHz FSB / Socket 939 / Processor.....729.99
Ultra Dual Channel 1024MB PC4000 DDR 500MHz Memory (2 x 512MB).....229.99 x 2
Asus GeForce 6800 Ultra / 256MB DDR3 / PCI Express ....... 749.99 x 2
Western Digital Raptor 74GB Serial ATA 10K / 8MB / S-ATA-150 Hard Drives ( 2- Pack )......409.99
Western Digital / Caviar SE / 200GB / 7200 / 8MB / SATA-150 / Hard Drive....... 99.99 x 2
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2..... 69.99
Thermaltake Venus 12 / Socket 754/940 / AMD Opteron/Athlon 64 / Ball Bearing / Copper Core / CPU Cooling Fan....39.99
ThermalTake Smart Blue 90mm LED Case Fan Blue......... 10.99 x 5
Ultra Dragon Glossy Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB and FireWire......99.99
Ultra / 600-Watt / ATX / Dual 80mm / 24-Pin / Continuous Power / SATA Ready / Clear Sided / Power Supply...........99.99
Asus DRW-1604P / 4x16x DVD+R DL / 16x4x16x DVD±RW / 32x24x40x CD-RW / Dual-Layer / DVD Burner Black...........94.99
Asus CD-S520 / 52x CD-ROM / Black / CD Drive...........19.99
1.44MB Floppy Disk Drive (Black)...........9.99
Cooler Master Black Musketeer I Fan Crontroller........27.99

So... monitors aside what ya'll think of this monster? I stand behind thermaltake and Ultra as companies so anything with thier name prolly won;t get changed. Also getting my motherboard and video cards from the same manufacturer will almost certainly guarantee maximum compatibility...

total price tag... about 4500 including misc other stuff (4100 without)

Now I KNOW the gear available will be better by the time I save this up... but I also know I'll be able to get far more for the same amount of money when that time comes.

I'll make a deal with you... if I can get a job making 100k a year or more within a year... I'll buy 10 people mega systems like this one and I'll have Admin raffle them off. Hell... i'm single and very bored and I don;t need that much money anyways.

blob: that had better be sarcasm cause the audigy4 is not worth it... the audigy2 zs platinum or audigy2 zs platinum pro are much better buys
