For me, the "dream" rig isnt just the most extreme I can think up of. Its much more the character and usability of it than how powerful its hardware. My dream rig would be something like this. That is a custom made desk with the PC built inside of it, all water-cooled and apparently dead silent.

fix the sound card. creative is a pile of crap

The mouse in that Picture is the NAOS 5000. I know because I have th 3200 ^-^ Got it a couple weeks ago, I freakin love this thing. NAOS 8200 just came out, I think :) 

EDIT:I Know it's not my 3200 because the 5K has those dpi lights on the side and mine doesnt

creative is awesome,
don't judge by the brand, look at this specific model performance
it's better then ASUS Xonar Essence STX
and also better than creative Titanium HD

....
BUT can it play minecraft?

dont judge by brand? at that rate, a diablotek is better than a seasonic psu

do you have specific performance charts compared to a essence stx? if it was that good, id see audiophiles springing for it.

their so called new feature where you can turn up footstep noises is also bogus given i can fool you off with a low tone explosive
January 7, 2013 1:56:25 PM

i don't meant just spec, but also quality , and how much quality control is done

creative snr ratio is better and better features and spec compared to the asus,
and the asus makes noises when near a powerfull gpu

some of the components in the spec are not in production yet,
and will only be in few months,
and some are very new , this is you are not seeing any reviews
January 7, 2013 2:00:50 PM

quality control. are you kidding me. asus individually tests their cards and gives you a sound report.

SNR ratio is useless after a certain point. if you play anything at 120dba, you are already deaf.

noises happen to any sound card if you put them too close to a electronic source.
January 7, 2013 2:04:46 PM

both are good, i'll wait for reviews , probably there will be a proffessional comparision and tests of the two cards
January 7, 2013 2:30:18 PM

that isnt a sound card any more. that would be a dac. or more likely a input output box
January 7, 2013 3:06:55 PM

oh, right,

i still don't know if the soundblaster zxr has asio support and 192khz/24bit support
probably will know in a month or 2 when it's comletley released and reviewed
February 11, 2013 11:28:45 AM

soundblaster zxr has 192khz/24bit playback support
asio probably with asio4all on the worst case


thought about changing the harddrive to
Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ x3
February 13, 2013 12:00:11 PM

also gpu probably
Nvidia GeForce Titan (GK110 like tesla , probably asus/evga board) x2(sli)
instead of the 690
