i would replace the HDD with t a bunch of SSD hard drives in RAID 0 to make up 2TB and get 4 24" monitors. and why stick with onboard audio? add a HT omega or asus xonor card with a 5.1 sound system connected via optical or analog outputs

lol xeon for gaming, maybe idk. To be honest, my dream pc isnt that expensive, i would probably settle for a 6990, 12 gb of ram, and a huge projector with a crazy ass soundsystem, i would cry if that ever happened.

I mentioned this wasn't SPECIFICALLY FOR GAMING. It was meant for for an "all around" system, that should be highly stable and responsive. By the way the xeon I mentioned is a 6 core CPU with HT, which makes it a 12 core + 12 HT computer. I know the Xeon is slightly slower than the I7 3960X, but who's going to notice with 12 cores?
