I am interested in building a new computer with some of the newest technology out there right now. Money is not really a factor in this equation. However, I do not want something insane that will not be put to good use.
The main uses of this computer will be for college homework. I am working on my computer engineering degree so the most intense software that will be running on this computer would be something like AutoCAD or Autodesk Inventor and other misc. engineering software and microsoft office. I also love multimedia and love to use Corel Painter X on my free time. I am a media lover so something that can play the latest HD content would be a plus. It doesn't necessarily need a blu ray drive since I have a blu ray player but something that can play HD video would be great. I do not play games on my computer. I use my ps3 and xbox 360 for that matter. I do not need a fancy lcd monitor because I have a 1080p hd projector. I would however like to use this computer as a server for media files and other things when not in use. Currently I use tversity as my media server for my home and i love it. If it could contain some of the latest technology I would prefer that it did. Even though not necessary, I would also like to have it lit up and have a liquid cooling system even if not necessary. Right now I am starting off with an XG Viper 2 case. I also forgot to add, I would like to run a dual boot system with windows vista ultimate and windows 7
I pulled up this barebone kit. What do you think?
