I already got something in mind, but I'm wondering what some of you could come up with. Requirements 4000$ budget, core i7, Windows vista (I'm not waiting for 7 i must get off this p.o.s computer I'm on now), keyboard, mouse,monitor,speakers,(printer optional). any site although must ship within USA... Preference Gaming (anything from fps to mmos), also want to OC to at least 3.5ghz. Date to build 01May09.

$4000? you'll only need around half that for a top quality i7 and 24" screen.

Wouldn't throw a huge 30" screen in it, just use a huge HDtv and would probably recommend either 2 285's or 2 295's GTX's on a rampage ASUS x58 or ASUS P6T deluxe v2.

Ram: even though there not as tight timed, Dominator corsairs. Best quality range.

For tighter timed ram, OCZ Platinums at DDR3 1600 3x2gb.

psu, a hx 1000w corsair or higher for the 295's.

Case, Coolermaster haf or something around that big.

12gb 2ghz ddr3 ram, i7 920 D0@ 4.9ghz via Peltier or water cooling, 3x GTX 285's oc'ed as far as possible, a silverstone raven and a 1300w PSU to keep it going.

oh and a couple of 60GB ssd's in Raid 0.
