    Default The Beastliest Computer EVER!

    I'm sorry I had to tell someone about this...
    I have a home-based custom computer building service in Grosse Pointe, MI. Grosse Pointe is where alot of filthy rich people live and many computers I've built run over 2000 bucks. But the new record has been set- $5420! (Without the monitor). This person is a friend of mine, but he's rich and he asked for the best stuff I had:
    AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 2.8GHz Processor (Overclocked to 3.15GHz!)
    ASUS MSN32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
    4GB (2 x 2GB) Kingston 240-Pin DDR2 RAM w/ Heatspreader (Overclocked)
    Lite-On 16X DVD-RW and DVD-ROM Drives
    Logitech G15 and G7 Keyboard and Mouse
    PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW Quad SLI Power Supply
    Dual Seagate Barracuda 750GB Hard Drives in RAID 0
    Dual XFX Geforce 7950GX2 1GB Graphics Cards (Overclocked)
    Silverstone TJ07 Black Aluminum ATX Case

    For some reason he didn't want any watercooling

    Anyway thought I'd share that with you...

    I would have waited just a bit and gotten him a Conroe rig...

    I just wish I would have a chance to build a computer like that..

    Are you kidding? Ten bucks says he uses it to download porn and play solitaire. At least that's what happens in the UK-our rich people are idiots. They buy 4*4s for urban landscapes as a status symbol, they buy big ass computers in order to look cool. The worst thing is, everyone wants to be just like them, so instead of buying things they want or need, they try and buy a bigger 4*4, or a quad SLI setup, or something else stupid.

    Green with envy? Me? Never. Don't know what you're talking about.

    Ill try and get pictures, my digital cameras broken so I might have to do something else.

    Don't worry, its being put to good use. He's my friend so I told him to use it for what I made it for. He plays Oblivion and Far Cry on it right now. He went out and bought a 30" Dell LCD shortly afterwards. I gotta admit playing oblivion in 2560 x 1440 is AWESOME. And booting in 12 seconds aint to bad either...

    Ohh, btw (please don't call me stupid), what is a Conroe rig?

    Lastly I could have put 8 gigs of RAM (and 4.5 terabytes of HDD) in it but even he knows a little about computers and thinks that's rediculous. He wanted the 750 gig barracudas because he's also going to do alot of video editing and dvd-downloading so he wanted the space.
