Make a image file, of your dream pc in a computer site, and make sure to highlight the price of it, you can use paint or photoshop doesn't really matter, share your dream pc. Also, remember to give feedback on other people's dream pc, some people have pcs that are designed for 1 purpose some are monster pcs D:/.

Here are some pc sites to get you started.

Tigerdirect.ca
Tigerdirect.ca (US)
NCIX.com (US AND CAN)
ibuypower.com
alienware.com
dell.com
dell.ca



Here's mine.

Well that was fun, and there's probably a fair bit I could change if I spent even more time on it. As it is, that's 45 minutes research into parts there...

Heh, i don't have much of a desire i want mine to come true, but maybe when i have a decent job i'll most likely spend 5,000 on a pc well, i'ma just buy 2 pcs cause, instead of spending 30,000 on a pc you can spend that on future years cus technology will change eventually lol :) Yeah i don't have much needs my dream pc is pretty good for me. And i REALLY feel sorry for whoever has to pay for that. LOL.
Btw, do you think all of my parts will fit in my case, and is it a good build?

Troy, you just about covered it for me. That is pretty much my dream PC. I will not post mine because it has already been posted, except for a few changes.

The only thing I'd change is the PSU, I've never been a fan of Ultra. :)

Other than that it should be good, as long as you've researched the compatibility properly.

EDIT: Oh, and ignoramo, what changes would you make?

Two points:

1. Designing any machine that you intend to buy in 1-2 years is pointless. In 1-2 years, you'll be able to get much more performance for the same price. (Or the same performance for a much lower price.)
2. Some of Ultra's PSUs are top-of-the-line PSUs. Others are garbage. The one ZzDiety picked out is a garbage one, unfortunately, but I wouldn't rule out all of Ultra's offerings. For example, the Ultra X3 1600W is an amazing PSU. It is, of course, overkill for any system, but this is a "dream" topic, after all.

Well it is a dream system.

Ultimate retail has both the 32 bit and the 64 bit versions included.
Since I am buying so many HD's I should be able to buy two retail copies with no problem?
Other then the disc packs what do you think Troy?

You can buy as many retail copies as you like, period. It's the OEM versions you need to purchase with components to satisfy the OEM licensing law.

It looks pretty nice overall, but I would call it more a "reality" system than a dream system. :)

I'm not much on a dreamer system per say.
The system I have now I've had for almost 8 years with minor upgrades.

Another question for the dual boot techs.
With this new system can I make a dual boot operation with
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on the 500 gig SATA drive and XP Professional 32 bit on a 250 gig IDE drive?

Yes. I'm running a triple boot system on this machine...three drives, three operating systems with one of them a 32 bit.

Thanks Wannabe1

I guess from this point then it's just a matter of getting the parts. That may not happen till tax time :)
I guess I could setup my current system with a dual boot now since I do have the RC for Windows 7 installed on another driver.
Using Troys tutorial on dual boot I should be able to setup everything correct?
