Ok guys, I know some of you think a netbook is what the average user needs for optimal web-surfing needs, but I contend that sentiment. Behold, the Web Browser 3.0.

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

I know 2.1 GHz does not strike fear into you OCing gamers, but how about a 2.1 GHz TWELVE CORE. Oh, I'm sorry, 4x twelve cores. 48 cores total. Take that Sandy Bridge.

128GB DDR3 1333 ram

1800W Power supply. Redundant.

1 600GB 15000 RPM Hard Drive (it's just for browsing so no need to go overboard).


Come on lads, help me make this the most ridiculous build possible!

I had a better build than that in fact it would make yours look like a child's toy. Unfortunately it decided to go back in time to kill Sarah Conner.

can we find a 56k modem to stuff into it? :)

You know those browsing cookies can take up a ton of hard drive space, so I think you really need to make use of all 24 hard drive bays ($21K web browser and he's worried about going overboard?)

Edit: Since you'll want to be able to swap out those drives should one fail, you'll need another 24 drives as spares.

Good call Wolfshadw.

Ok, but I figured out a compromise. By adding 3 pci x4 sata controllers we can fit 13 drives in those hot swap slots (say that 3 times fast).

So that's...

8 IBM 42D0410 300GB 15000 RPM 4Gb Fibre Channel Internal Hard Drive

1 Lenovo ThinkServer 67Y1385-BN 450GB 15000 RPM SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" BDL Hot-Swap Internal Hard Drive

and

4 Lenovo ThinkServer 67Y1386-BN 600GB 15000 RPM SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" BDL Hot-Swap Internal Hard Drive

And as the case can hold a cool 24 HDDs it fits them all like a champ.

Which brings us to a thrifty total of $49,090.98

ahh but can you slip in a usb 3 card somewhere just in case you need some extra redundent back up through some type of usb 3 external connection? I mean you can never be too safe with your data.

I think my wallet just had a stroke :D 

Don't forget an all-in-one card reader, you *really* need one of those to quickly upload your pictures to failbook...

And I'd include a few of these in the room too:

what if you have extra parts you dont need?

10 x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

this is a really great velvet bag and with 10 you'd be set!
it also comes with a free power supply dont know why youd want that though
i guess you'd be able to sell the PSU's for like $10 each on craigslist.
