Default What is your opinion...what desk top would you buy?

In your opinion...what is the Best desk top to buy on the market today? If i gave you my credit card and asked you to purchase for me the Top-of-Line desk top PC..what would it be? And...how much GB, Ram and any other bells and whistles would be suffice for a slightly above average Web surfer?

Thanks for any and all opinions/advice!

And how do you plan to use the computer?

I recently bought a TouchSmart 610 and find it great as a desktop computer.. then I have my Samsung series 9 which is great for travel.

If you gave me your credit card, your bank account would be overdrafted in 5 minutes.

my desktop

quad socket motherboard with 16 core AMD interlagos processor
80gb of system ram running at 2133mhz
Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 sli
1500 watt power supply unit
Windows 2008 server OS

I would make this into a Folding@home, folding farm.
Total cost would be about $4,000. If I drop the 690s and get most parts used and I make it with $2200.

PM me your credit card #

I will use it for Folding@Home folding farm. Folding@Home is a project for simulation of protein folding, finding new types of medical drugs. It is developed and operated by Stanford University.

Its like the original Seti@home for the PS3 or desktop, but instead of finding aliens, it tries to find new cures for diseases and new drugs for them.

And yes I would need 1500 watts PSU,

The quad socket cpu and motherboard alone draws around 500-550 watts. Then you have the dual NVIDIA 690 sli that draws 300-350 watts each.
I would cool it all down with a liquid cooling system.

I could drop the graphics card and i just need a 600 watts power supply.

The reason it is doing on my computer is simple, I have a spare computer(s) that is taking up space and I want to use it for something.

Plus an old friend of my died from cancer and doing this greatly benefits everyone.

The reason of what is it doing to your computer is simple. It will tax your graphic card or processor to hell. You can adjust the amount of processor power it uses but I always use 100%. Anything under that is worthless and a waste of time.
