    i would get a phase changers for every thing just because i could.
    and i would get two gtx295s just to P-off hard core ATI fans.

    its cool that your dream PC has a HighDef uber sound card too.
    What speakers would you get?
    and dont say bose.

    If you had the money why would you settle for less performance just to "p-off ati fans". The way I see it, ATI is #1 right now, so money goes to them on a new rig.

    You can give me a gift of $1,500,000 if you win lol. I have no desire to be a multimillionaire, but I wouldn't mind living comfortably: everything paid, leisure liftstyle, tech, cars, girls, etc.

    It's pretty interesting that your top 10 list is nearly the same as mine:

    1) Primary home (complete with hidden rooms and secret passageways)
    2) Winter home (likewise, hidden rooms and passageways)
    3) Dream car(s)
    4) Ultimate home theater setup
    5) Ultimate computer room setup
    6) Family set for life (caveat: Total Money Makeover & Financial Peace University)
    7) Millions into well performing mutual funds, live off interest
    8) Close friends given gifts of $$$ (caveat: Total Money Makeover & Financial Peace University)
    9) Travel a LOT (TOKYO!!!!)
    10) Give away old stuff whenever I buy new stuff


    Fantasy is fun :)

    I think at one point or another we all have done this, looked at say newegg and priced out our dream rigs. however there some things that i would change in your pick for parts, but it doesn't matter due to the fact that your dreaming.
