You might want an Alienware or something, but how about telling everyone your dream computer. Go outside the box. This computer can be the most physically impossible thing ever. It can have a built in printer and scanner. It can be ANYTHING. Hope this is fun.

My Dream Computer:

Intel Xeon Processor running at 3.2 Ghz
250 GB HDD
nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX with 1GB video memory
Mac OS X Tiger
World of Warcraft Pre-Installed (lol)

16x DVD-CD RW (multi-format double layer)
Floppy Drive
Zip Disk Drive
9-in-1 Digital Media Manager
SD, Smart Media, Compact Flash, Micro Drive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick PRO Duo Multimedia Card, USB 2.0

nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX with 1GB video memory
S-Video In (for capture purposes)
S-Video Out
RCA Video In (for capture purposes)
RCA Video Out
*Coaxial In (for capture)

24 Bit Sound Card (I don't know any companies!)
Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound
RCA Audio Out
RCA Audio In (for capture)

Networking: (this is the cool part)
*Built in Gigabit Cable Modem (coaxial on back of comp)
Wireless N router (2.4 Ghz) with 8 port switch and SRX
56K v.92 modem
Built in Bluetooth 2.0

Basic I/O:
Serial Port
Parallel Port
Six USB 2.0
2 Firewire (IEEE 1394)
Power Cable

(now for the other cool stuff):
XBOX 360 Drive
PS3 Drive
Nintendo Revolution Drive
Wireless technology to support up to: 8 playstation 3 controllers, 4 XBOX 360 controllers, and 4 nintendo revolution controllers.

Monitor not included. Haha

*Since this is not reality, the computer would recieve gigabit cable internet straight from the cable line.
* The coaxial for capture could sync with your digital cable (or satellite) box and then capture it. Also, how about a a slingbox like function? That would rock
*The whole console gaming would be like this: All of those next-gen drives would let me put any XBOX 360, PS3, or Nintendo Revolution Game (or supported disc types on the systems) and let my play the games with a wireless controller that would connect to my PC

So, what do you think.
And, can someone get me an estimate in price (as in all this hardware's prices added)?

Remember, this all just non-fiction stuff. So post your dream computer!

THAT is your dream computer? Not shooting too high...

Mine briefly:

AMD FX 57 San Diego overclocked as much as possible
8 gigs of RAM
2 BFG 7800GTX OC's in SLI
A case built from a modified refrigerator.
Windows XP x64
2x 300 gig hardrives

Wow yall aren't thinking hard enough you need to have an imagination.

My system would have:

- AMD FX 57 Quad core (Overclocked)
- 4 BFG 7800GTX OC's in SLI
- 12 GB of PC7000 RAM
- 2 500GB harddrives goin 20,000RPM
- All of this with liquid nitrogen as the cooling
- A 80' OLED screen which is supposed to be 1000X more responsive than modern LCD screens once they fix the life span.
- Oh and this computer will be in a theater hooked up with all the sound. And im goin to kinda steal yoshi's idea and put all next gen gaming consoles in there.

Anything? How about a 500 qubit quantum computer?

The power of quantum superposition gives quantum computing exponentially more computing power than a traditional computer. Not only can a set of qubits store multiple configurations at once, it can perform operations on all of the configurations at one time.

Because quantum computers enjoy exponentially more power than traditional computers, traditional computers cannot match them, even with more memory and processing power. One example, published in a Caltech paper in 2000, showed that a quantum computer containing 500 qubits would represent a superposition equal to as many as 2 to the 500th power states. The equivalent in a traditional computer would be a string of 500 bits (zeroes and ones) for each state represented in the quantum computer. To match the computational power of the 500 qubits, a traditional computer would need a number of CPUs equal to about 10 to the 150th power (based on 2000 technology). For comparison, some estimates say the number of atoms on earth equals about 10 to the 50th power.

An infinite processing speed for every thing, 100Eb (Exabyte= 1 million Gigabytes) Hard Drive going at 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 and Ram of the same size. A 200cm screen and surround sound. It has to be a quantum computer and have a every type of removable media drive (with all the latest such and the blue laser DVD and the yet unreleased 140GB optical disk). It has to have wireless Keyboard and mouse, 100TB wireless internet connection. I must have all the operating systems Microsoft, Mac and Linux since 1998. I would like also attachments like a colour Laser Printer and a Photo Printer like they have where you get Photos developed, both capable of using A1 paper. A 10 GB pixel digital Camera with every feature possible. A very good video camera. An Apple I Pod that can store every song that was every written. And also 10 USB flash drives with 10EB capacity. And also a TV connection.

With A list like this I did not want to get tecnicial even though I could if I wanted to. (I might of forgoten things that I would like but this would be a good start).

As an after thought I would like a A1 size scaner with 100,000,000,000 DPI resultion, that take 1 second to scan something.
