    Heh, something I will never understand, but I can get 95% of that system's capability for 2,000$ less.

    It's nice to dream... As you may already know, the hunt for something is often better than the having it.

    While you're at it though, you may want to add a second Raptor, so you can take advantage of the - Dual SATA RAID. :devil:

    And you're missing one other essential component of a computer system!

    Yea, He needs to add some sound.

    Oh and who would buy a $2,000+ machine without dual processors!!! Thats Insane!

    and how will you do that?
    I've done it, and I did it 2 months ago already.

    Epox 8RDA+
    Barton 2500+
    (2) 512 Crucial PC2700
    Gainward Ti4600 128MB
    Turtle Beach Santa Cruz
    WD2000JB
    Any Antec Case
    LiteOn 52 CD-RW

    ----

    And here's the kicker. In two years, take HALF of the money you saved and get yourself THIS.

    AMD Athlon @ 4 Ghtz
    (2) 1024 Crucial @ 666 FSB
    Leadtek Geforce 7 - 512 MB PCI Express 2.0
    WD10,000XB (16 MB Cache) (One Terabyte)
    40X DVD Burner

    ---

    In 4 years, take the remaining money you saved and get THIS

    AMD @ 10 Ghtz
    (2) 2048 Crucial @ 1500 FSB
    Leadtek GeForce 10 1024MB PCI Express 8
    WD 4 Terabyte 64MB Cache

    But ! Someone's gotta pay for R+D so don't listen to me! :D

    Sound ain't what he needs there as onboard solutions are very good these days but to hear it he'll need speakers. :laugh:

    INTEL PENT. 4 (800MHZ FSB) 512K / 3.0GHZ CPU / SOCKET 478 (W/ CPU COOLER) (RETAIL) (ORDER ON REQUEST)
    $629.95

    Just a few months ago this was like almost $1200. I know someone that buys these things when they first come out ,every time since the 450 pIII. Even selling the old one every six months, its hard to recover even 20% each time. It was the cause of his divorce. Now thats a real addict:wow:

    This one was his latest: Pentium 4 3.2GHz 512K 800FSB Socket 478 CPU (Retail) $1,079.95

    And in a few months this will be the same price or less than the one above. Thats why no place stocks them. They don't want to lose money.
    The worst part is, for what he does with it, a 1gig is way more than enough.
