    Okay, here is what I recommend:

    You will need to change a couple of things to get it customized to fit your needs...

    Here is what you need to change:

    CPU Processor:
    2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2820QM Processor ( 8MB L3 Cache, 2.30GHz

    Operating System:
    Genuine MS Windows® 7 Professional 32/64-Bit Edition ( 64-Bit Preloaded )

    12GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz - 3 X 4GB **

    Leave everything else unless you have something else in mind.

    The Subtotal will run you at 1969 USD.

    I'm searching for other deals that might be better...
