    Money to a certain extent is no object.

    I have been asked to build a 'Super PC@ for a friend of mine. He says money is no object.

    What do you guys recommend?

    PC.
    I was thinking:
    Intel P4 3.0GHz, with Hyper-threading
    Abit IC7-G
    1GB crucial ram
    MSI nVidia 5900 Ultra 256MB
    2 * 120GB SATA Hard drives
    DVD-RW
    CD-RW
    Floppy drive

    thoughts?
    recommendations for a motherboard?

    have a look around recomended manufacturers thread, also nforce chipset based mobo are meant to be good.
    if money is a slight object go for amd system, alot cheaper

    - AMD Athlon XP 3200+ "Barton" DDR400 CPU
    - Alpha PAL8045 with YS-Tech FD8125 45cfm 80mm fan
    - ABIT NF7-S v2.0 Serial ATA150 Nforce 2 Motherboard
    - 1024Mb Corsair XMS3500 CAS-2.0 memory (Dual DDR Mode) (2 x 512Mb)
    - 120GB Maxtor 8mb cache SATA 150 Hard Drive
    - Hercules Radeon 9800 Pro 128Mb AGP 8x Graphics card
    - Pioneer DVD-120 DVD Slot loading drive
    - Teac Floppy Drive
    - Coolermaster ATC 210B-VX1 Aluminium Case
    - Antec TruePower 430w AMD Compatible ATX Silent Power Supply

    That sounds about right, unless he isnt a really big gaming fan, then go for a dual opteron of xeon system,

    Im all for Pentium buying if money isnt a factor, meh.

    But serious, milk this guy if he says money isnt an option.........

    ur friend&#39;s gona pay major 4 a comp like that. at least &#036;2000. ha ha. i would ask him if he&#39;s gona pay that much 1st. of course, if ur dealing with a guy in a maison, or some gang dude. but if it&#39;s some college student or high school student, &#036;2k might b 2 much. but, that&#39;s my opinion.
