HARDCORE PC.

Hi, well, here is the situation, I currently have a good PC, not great, but is just Ok, lately I'm like gaming A LOT, i think is because i have traveled so much that I'm like bored of traveling, bored of partying hard, etc, so I'm thinking into building a hardcore PC for gaming, money is not an issue, so if you can help me to pick the best of the best can you please help me out here.

Motherboard:
Processor:
RAM:
Graphics Video Card: (two, three or whatever it needs to get the best games at ULTRA with no problems)
Sound Card:
Hard Drive:
DVD/BluRay Drive:
Monitor:
Mouse & Keyboard:
& extras

if there is something missing you can add it, price is not an issue as i said before, thanks.

  1. Hello.

    I'm new around here, but I'll flex my newegg-suggestions muscles. I can't suggest much cause I'm not up to date with parts today, but I can suggest you this nice case that others might agree and since moneys not an issue.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139001 $249.99 --> $225 after MIR.

    It's a full steel full ATX case, seeing as these builds end up having 2 graphics cards might as well make room for the future. It is the momma-jommma of all cases.
  2. Ok well, if you can just get your hands on one of the supercomputers...We have one here in Danville, Va. that cost around $23 million USD..So if money is not an issue I would look into purchasing something of the like...Otherwise please place a cap on your budget...

    I have traveled around the world, i have been in the 234 countries the planet earth have, im 25 years old and iam multimillionare, do you really think 23 million dollars is an issue for me?

    as i said before, money is not an issue for me, if your super computer in Danville is USED FOR GAMING can you please give me more pecs about it?
  4. Sure you can fold@home like a banshee with it too....come on....Here is a real beast of a machine...check it out:

  5. Salcem, contact the owner of Frankenstein, link provided, give him an offer. But in all seriousness, you need to provide a budget.

    If your as rich, as you say then just buy a supercomputer don't even bother building it.
  6. Salcemx, you are the perfect candidate for my Geothermal PC cooling idea...BTW..You could play every PC game on Ultra settings with massive FPS with ultra high resolution, while surfing the net and a few other tasks all at one time with the supercomputer..So that would be the ultimate. You could host the sickest LAN party in the world..Anybody for a few rounds of BF3
  7. I'll join you lowjack.
  8. Best can be defined in alotta ways ... for example, you could spend 2 or even 3 times as much and see only small improvements....this will play the latest games in ultra settings at HD resolution ... an dyes, I tried ti soend money :)

    yeah, cuda spent more but I made a condition that any changes hadda result in observable improvement....more expensive doesn't mean better and better doesn't mean observably better ..... like the 3930 -> 3960 .... cud measure a synthetic difference in benchies but not in game fps. Cuda put more RAM in but ..... through the faster RAM will show small fps improvement, more of it will not. And I'm not gonna put 3 screens together w/o 3D ability
