Ok.

Keeping it real, I don't want to hear about a 8945894 mhz system with 98282 gigs of memory, with 84 DVD burners... Tell me about your dream computer system. PC, Mac, motherboard, this video, that burner... everything you can think of...

To easy right? Yeah... Keep it under $2500.00

You are talking to a bunch of l33t computer whores. Anybody here would be able to churn through $2,500 and not be able to call it a 'dream machine'.

Anyway, if money wasn't an object for me, my setup would be as follows (prices in AU):

CPU: Intel Xeon Quad-Core X5460/ 3.16GHz/ 12MB Cache/ 1333FSB/ LGA775/ Passive : $1,481.70
Motherboard: XFX nForce 790i Ultra Motherboard : $490.60
RAM: Corsair DDR3 4GB PC-16000/2000 (2x XMS3 2GB) TW3X4G2000C9DF Ram : $1,153.90
Graphics: XFX 9800GX2 Black Edition 1GB, DDR3, 512bit, PCIE, Dual DVI, HDCP, HDMI (PV-T98U-ZHB9) : $784.30
Moniter: 2x Viewsonic 25.5" VP2650WB WIDESCREEN BLACK LCD (for dual-screen): $737.00 x 2
Keyboard & Mouse: Logitech Cordless Desktop MX-5500 Revolution Bluetooth (I think Martyr2 already has this): $166.10
Speakers: Creative Gigaworks S750 THX Certified 7.1 Speakers : $614.90
Case: Thermaltake Xaser VI Black/Red Full Tower Case (430W) : $341.00

All up: $6506.50 AU (which is pretty close to the US dollar atm). YUM.

I once went to Sun's system builder site and put together the ultimate desktop...it would have cost $16,000 (US) if I'd pressed the buy it button...lol

"Dream Computer" is just a mythical beast. It can't really be done. (at least within reason... I mean if I had a quantum computer...)

I went out and bought a Quad-Core core 2 Extreme 3Ghs, 64bit, 8 Gig Ram, a decent SLI MoBo and all the associated standard dressings. It was not my dream computer (I really wanted an Itanium system, but I don't have that much money and I don't want a rack mounted system in my house... well thats a lie, but still) BUT it was the best I could afford... and not a week later I was talking with someone from work who has a much better system... and now my processor is in the bargain-bin on NewEgg. My brother promptly went out and purchased a better computer than mine.

I.E. Buying a Dream Computer is an exercise in disappointment and/or wasting money.

3 months later my computer would cost 800-1000 dollars less and is already obsolete. (not really obsolete, but... it feels that way).

There's a comedian over here called Bill Bailey (no it's not Axl Rose). When he was a kid he went to see a huge computer way back when they took up whole buildings. The guys running it said "This is a computer. We predict that in the future there will be 8 of these"...lol

Actually, I meant to say $7500.00... I have no idea how it came out $2500.
My bad...

Keep it under $7500.00

That guy was right. There are 8 of them. And then some.

My dream computer will make me breakfast in bed, then clean the house and take care of the kids all day, while keeping me entertained in the process.
Oh wait, that's my dream man. lol

j/k...I can't think of what I'd want in a 'dream' computer so I just made something up.
:D

Well, my dream computer would have 25353 GB of ram, a 100-core processor @5435255 ghz, a dvd r/w drive, a Blu-Ray r/w drive, would fit in my pocket and still have a 1600x1200 screen, would allow me to travel through time, would let me walk through solid matter and become invisible, and would be able to create a stable wormhole between here and a planet that supports life in Andromeda. However like you said that would be a bit out of my, or anyone's price range even if it existed. So, a more reasonable dream computer would be the Dell XPS 730 with no modifications. That comes to just under $2,500. However, i still think that price range you gave was a bit low. I mean, come on, if your going to do a dream comp thread, at least make the price no object. So, ignoring your price range, i would take the Dell XPS 730 H2C, with a Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme processor, 8GB of ram, a 2TB main HD and a 1TB secondary HD, a 22'' widescreen monitor with webcam, a Blu-Ray Burner drive, a DVD r/w drive, Vista ultimate, nVidia's latest and fastest graphics card, Logitech's best wireless gaming keyboard, one of those Logitech bajillion button wireless mice, a Logitech 8 channel speaker system, and it would come with Photoshop CS3. The dream computer i always wanted: $12,000+. Getting the dream computer i always wanted: Priceless. :D

Im sick of fucking technology.
