I'll be using a lot of video programs. I'll be using applications that will require TREMENDOUS amounts of processing power, often simultaneously. I'll also be using Microsoft Office extensively. I am going to need a VERY powerful computer with an extreme amount of RAM. It's almost as if I need an extreme gamer's computer, except I don't waste my time with gaming - there's too much to learn in New Media!
Which manufacturers build the most powerful desktop computers?
What is the maximum amount of RAM that I can get in a computer?
What is the most harddrive I can get in a computer?
What are the most powerful video cards?
Would you recommend I work with Windows 7 OS?
How much processor power can I get in a computer?
What kind of motherboard do I need to have external drives?
What else am I missing - I am sure I've left a lot out lol?
Please do EDUCATE me, Geeks. I have a lot to learn! Laugh hard, but DO teach me everything you know.

Some of you are building your own computers from scratch. What's possible in that regard? How powerful can you build computers these days?
I need a computer running Windows 7 with extreme amounts of processing power, TONS of RAM, a lot of harddrive space and a killer video card.
All input is welcome. Thanks in advance.
Mods - You should probably move this topic to the Windows 7 subforum.
