Your Dream Computer!
July 6, 2009 9:50pm CST
If you could get any computer right now what kind would you get? What would it be capable of? I'd get a desktop with the best core i7 CPU available today, as much RAM as possible, and the best graphics card I can find. Also I'd want a big LCD touch screen display! It would be capable of playing all the latest games and so much more! I want it!

Hello, my dream computer is the fastest computer with great RAM. The most important I want about my computer is that it should not hang every now and then. It should have super graphics and the CPU should be smallest in size. The better the RAM, you get the ease to use high memory requiring software, games and other programs :-)

For me, my dream rig or what we call in another forum as 'Ruler of the Universe' is a desktop PC that has multiboot OS of Windows 7/ Windows XP/ Ubuntu Linux...It has to be powerful enough to handle my resource hog multitasking activities like encoding audio & video, photo/image rendering, playing audio/video for quality resampling... surfing the net while uploading/downloading a file... I usually do this at the same time b'cos of deaadlines... If I'd be late then I get less acclaims for my online activities and less income too. Here are spec : dual Intel Xeon processor or I7 core... overclocked to 5 GHZ or above 16 to 32 gig of RAM 2 to 4 GPU card (ATI Radeon HD4890, if possible) dual LCD monitor... 32'inches Viewsonic or Samsung Syncmaster 7.1 surround speaker system (all THX if possible) 4 x 2 TB Western Digital disk drive space Blu-ray drive from Sony or Pioneer Super cool ATX tower w/ extra room or storage for another disk drive or Graphic card.. All in all...that's $20,000 or more!
