depends on how much money you have

is all down to the money

I7 980x @ 4.5ghz
Crossfire 5970 @ 1ghz core, 6ghz memory(Well, Quad SLI GTX 480's would do better, but the PSU would be over the max wattage for a normal wall socket)
24GB 2400mhz DDR3
6 intel 160GB SSDs in Raid 0
Some high end mobo
1200W PSU from a good company

There's the essential parts for the best gaming computer, I believe.

I would make the question a little more detailed if you want a better answer then "The Best". :whistle: 

Maybe you can tell us whether you want AMD/Intel or how much money can go into the build?

Best gaming computer? Easy.. MINE

Wow, you have four GTX 470s on a 1200W? How high is that 980x overclocked?
You could still do better with more SSDs for load times, but otherwise that thing has to be a monster. Have you fed it Crysis for breakfast?

Show off... do you even use all your 6 cores? And why Quad SLI 470's? 4x 480 would be impressive, but y not the worlds most powerful card? the 5970...

Hi

The HD 5970 is two HD 5870s on a single PCB underclocked to HD 5850 speeds. The ASUS ROG Ares is two HD 5870s on a single PCB at stock speeds.

Hi
True, my bad, but still the asus ares has taken the crown for the current fastest vga card. it has beaten 5970 quite nicely.

A question you could ask every 6 months and get a different (and correct!) answer each time. The corollary to this rule is that whatever "Best" we may build today will no longer be 'Best' in 6 months.


..and for the record - I agree with Psycho: Putting all the theorycrafting in the world onto a web page will never be able beat an actual computer sitting on (your) desk.
