I'll never actually be able to _afford_ the parts ;) ). Anyway, I had
some questions as to what parts to use. I figured you must have had some
experience with this.
What I have right now is a liquid cooling system, some lights, a psu, hd
and dvd ready. I'm still agonizing over the rest of the parts, though.
First off, what do you think is the best case around? I don't care about
cooling or whatever, just give me black, and a *BIG* side window :) .
Secondly, waht kind of mobo, etc. should I use? I _definitely_ want to
use an ati crossfire system, but that's about all I know. I'm trying to
figure out whether to use Intel or AMD (oh yes: this question again!). I
was familiar with Intel, so I looked around at what AMD had to offer. I
looked at the motherboards with Crossfire support, and they all appear
to be socket 939. I don't know much about AMD, but I found that the AM2
socket would probably be better for an "ultimate" system. Are there any
good motherboards that support Crossfire and AM2?
If any of you have any ideas, please tell me. From the parts I've found
so far, this thing would look *awesome* in real life.

Scratch everything I said. I'm looking for memory now. I'd specifically
like the best pc2-6400 memory around. I'd like 8gb in 4 dimms (2gb each)
in amatched pari config (i.e. you can point me to a site that sells them
by one and I'll get 4)
Onec I'm done, I'll post a list of parts on my webstie.
Excuse the spelling: I'm on an adrenaline (+ caffeine) rush :)
