Put together your dream computer....

Welp, Im tryin to think of a dream computer, and i'll prolly post mine once I figure it out. But what I want everyone to do, is to post their dream computer set-up, and specify what its main use would be.. gaming, art etc......

Have fun and post links if possible =)

Sorry, I had to. I have to go to class also, but I'd basically just upgrade my processor to an FX-53, add a gig of RAM, and keep my videocard. (6800 Ultra)

Yes, I understant that this is not a gaming machine, but if you're going aim high, start aiming around $60,000 or so. Haha, you can always modify the box.

Hell, you know what? Just give me an clustered IBM Blade Server or the Pixar rendering farm.

Soccerchamp: also, why use a 64-bit processor, you aren't going to take advantage of it, don't waste the money.

Also, IDE drives? NO NO NO. SCSI man, thats where it's at. Use multiple 15,000 rpm SCSI drives, but don't use IDE. Also, the hot swappableness of SCSI is purely a delight.

And one more thing, MS can't seem to get their 32bit version of WinXP working 100%, but now you're wanting to use the 64bit version? bleh

Use Linux.. www.debian.org

Of course he isn't gonna take advantage of the 64-bit aspect of it...that's not what Athlon 64's are for right now. They're for gaming, end of story. I guarantee I could take advantage of an Athlon 64 FX-53 quite nicely.

Have seen the 46" & 62" monitor setups in a production environment and they were all jaw breakers. Four 46" and three 62" monitoring a large variety of systems, all very impressive. I'd hate to know how much it all costed though.

Lasereth, I don't play many games, and the games I do play, they have ports for Linux. Mostly id software games.

Also though, I'm a systems admin. for a large chemical company. I handle the servers, which mostly run linux, so I'm in command line heaven most of the time and don't see a GUI too often. Hence why I like linux.

I can tell you though, Enemy Territory boots might fast on quad xeon processors (2mb cache) and 8 gigs of ram.

Isn't a T1 line only good up to 1.5 Mbps? I have 3 Mbps on cable, and have the ability to get up to 7 Mbps.

EDIT* First post was completely wrong.

2.5mbit/2.5mbit for t1, dedicated and always get steady speeds. I'd trade my extra download on comcast for 2.5mbit upload.

Edit again*

T1's range in price depending on your service, there are burst T1's that can hit 10/10mbit, but most are either 2.5 or 1.5.

Um...no?

T1 - An AT&T term for a digital carrier facility used to transmit a DS1 formatted digital signal at 1.544 megabits per second.

T1 transmission uses a bipolar Return To Zero alternate mark inversion line coding scheme to keep the DC carrier component from saturating the line.

Although some consider T1 signaling obsolete, much equipment operates at the "T1 rate" and such signals are either combined for transmission via faster circuits, or demultiplexed into 64 kilobit per second circuits for distribution to individual subscribers.

T1 signals can be transported on unshielded twisted pair telephone lines. The transmitted signal consists of pips of a few hundred nanoseconds width, each inverted with respect to the one preceding. At the sending end the signal is 1 volt, and as received, greater than 0.01 volts. This requires repeaters about every 6000 feet.

The information is contained in the timing of the signals, not the polarity. When a long sequence of bits in the transmitted information would cause no pip to be sent, "bit stuffing" is used so the receiving apparatus will not lose track of the sending clock.

A T1 circuit requires two twisted pair lines, one for each direction. Some newer equipment uses the two lines at half the T1 rate and in full-duplex mode; the sent and received signals are separated at each end by components collectively called a "hybrid". Although this technique requires more sophisticated equipment and lowers the line length, an advantage is that half the sent and half the received information is mixed on any one line, making low-tech wiretaps less a threat.

The T1 carries 24 pulse code modulation (PCM) signals using time-division multiplexing.

It can only reach 1.544Mbps, no faster.
