sure... easy done
replace the PC2100 ram with PC2400 and increase the FSB to 150/300.
run the 1.4's on a dual board until the athlon4 comes out.
get 4 ibm 15k rpm 36gb drives and put them in a raid 1+0 array: extra speed & redundancy mmmm
oh yeah... get liquid nitrogen cooling set up for your dual processors for that 2000Mhz+ overclock.
what else... hmmm
oh yeah, ditch the kirschp speaker system and just go out a buy a proper $5000 digital surround sound system.
after all, it IS the ultimate rig and money is no barrier right?
course you could always go for dual P4 1.8G xenons.
wonder how they would go cooled with liquid nitrogen?
"i love the smell of Overclocking in the morning!" Says my Hamster.
Add in some sweet Sennheiser electrostatic headphones with the vacuum tube amplifier for $12000, a brand new Gibson Les Paul Custom for about $3000, and a few $400 cables to hook everything together and we're talking almost $50000 of pure audio goodness :^)
And while we're at legacy audio, we might as well spring for their 42" plasmavision screen :^)
"In liquid-cooled configurations from 40 processors, each processor is capable of 1350 megaflops for overall system performance from 54 gigaflops to 3 teraflops and scalability to thousands of processors."
I wonder if I can O/C that baby......

one thing.......you don't need a DVD decoder card if you have a geforce 3, they have it built in. You only need one if you want to do output to a television, but if you have a 40-50 plasma TV then you don't really need TV out, unless you have one of those super nice 1280x1024 LCD projectors, but those nice ones DO have monitor plugs on them (well most of them)
How about the Coolest rig ever to fit into a desktop area, and not take up the entire room?

Have you guys see a plasma screen with input from a computer? Looks like s@#t! Now, like Oni said, plug it into an XGA projector (nice one) or a D-ILA G15, and you cannot beat that for any price! Imagine, surfing porn with a 10 foot wide picture! Ok for all you nerds, imagine reading THG forum with ten foot wide picture! Ok, for all you extreme nerds out there, imagine watching 3dMark benchmarks, or SiSoft results in 10 foot wide pictures, ok you get the point.
These projectors, even with their wide picture, are now pretty good in terms of picture quality. I mean, people are using them more and more often in home theaters, and those HT guys know their video quality like a mutha!
For speakers, I like the Revels, not as expensive as Legacys, around 20-30k, but look damn cool! Or maybe Meridian Digitals (since we are building computers, digital beasts)
Don't we all have the same super computer/cluser/rig anyway.
It's called the internet. Just need to make all apps capable of distributed computing (aka Seti) and loads of band width of course, just imagine Quake using millions of processors and Petabytes of storage for the environment, you could play 24x7x7x52 for the rest of your life and never reach every level...:-)
Get your own guitar built. Thats the way forward. Had a fixed neck strat built, without scratch plate. Top grade alder with a top grade flamed maple top. Wilkinson trem. JB humbucker at the bride, two Kinman noiseless single coils, built in Tube screamer, all through two mesa boogie mark IVs (Stereo) and a TC effect unit. mmmmmmm
