    It is not "the best" at all...................I can see two glaring misconfigurations.

    1. There should be twin DVD burners for redundancy.

    2. SATA/150 is lame, it should be SATA/300?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Well even if it isn't the best this is one great configuration to have.

    Apart from this the technology is evolving at such a rapid pace that there will be better hardware components available in a matter of months that will pose a challenge to this configuration too.

    He-heh, the "best" is in the eye of the beholder. Me? I prefer
    throwaways. Gimme an old laptop I can toss off a bridge into
    the river at a moment's notice.

    It's ALL j-u-n-k.

    Not even close to the best. There should be dual 8800 GTX's in there. And why is there only 800 GB of storage? I'd have thought dual (or more) 500GB Seagates would be the way to go... And for that amount of money, I want a dual processor board with 2 Core 2 Duos in there

    Moira! beware my dear, they called it "roadrunner" for a reason............ it will run Windows Vista "Extreme, Extreme" edition....................

    The BIOS goes "Beep, Beep" then you get a BSOD?



    Yes I remember Roadrunner, Wily. E . Coyote, Dick Dastardly, Muttley and the rest.................

    Hmmmmmmmm?

    It will also be able to achieve "petaflop speeds". One petaflop is the equivalent of 1,000 trillion calculations per second.

    Running at peak speed, it will be able to crunch through 1.6 thousand trillion calculations per second.

    1.6 thousand trillian calculations per second!

    What would you possibly do with that?!

    I think that most people only need their computer for one of two reasons...

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
