Shhh I can imagine anything I want.
IF I want an infinite computer I can darn well have one, In my mind.
In reality, I'd have dual dual proccessor board, 8 gigs ram, Two ATI's newest card (Yet to be released) In crossfire config. etc etc.

If I were going silly though, I would say a HP SuperDrome; 128 Itanium Processors (the 8Meg Cache ones, overclocked each to 3.2Ghz with Water Cooling), couple score nVidia nForce Professional Boards, couple hundred Gigs of RAM, couple dozen Terabytes of Space, nice thick Fibre Optic Gigabit Internet Backbone Connection, a few 7800 512Meg Cards, four 30inch thin bevelled Monitors, so they fit around me in a Semi-Sphere without much of a noticable gap, Microsoft trackball Explorer Mouse, Microsoft Fingerprint Reader Keyboard, nice Lexmark A3-size Laser Printer, A3 Scanner, DVD-Copier Tower, and Windows Longhorn Server Datacentre Edition for Itanium-Processors to command the power. Along with all my favourite Software, in native 64-bit Forum.

But that is going silly, of course :P
I'd get the same thing, exept I'd get 200+GB of RAM, tons of EB range HDDs, 4GHZ OCed CPUs (128) and dual 1GB Video cards

Don't forget the EHZ CPUs too

I'd get a laptop with VIA C7-M 2.0GHz CPU actually...considering energy consumption...with 2GB RAM, 100GB 7,200rpm HDD.

I'm still lookin for better too, I found one... but I can't find it actually being sold... only articles :\ Like this:
http://www.cooltechzone.com/index.ph...d=761&Itemid=0

5.7 trillion flops... holy crap... I wish I could flop like that lmao



But all this is a big jump from my piece of shit computer right now. All that I got going for me is my 320gb HD. And it seems to be running hot as hell (i not leave the case open)... And it's also all messed, can't even open my task manager anymore! (I posted about it already, no replies... but oh well).

amd 64s are much better than intel cpus in gaming THATS THE TRUTH if you cant handle it to bad. ANd AMD 64 CPUS and way cooler then pentium 4s and more "EFFICIENT". AMD cpus that are not 64 bit SUCK, but THE 64 BITS AMD CPUS are the BEST OF THE BEST for GAMING.

I couldn't agree more...

EDIT: Imagine a motherboard using a fiber-optic type thing instead of wires/electricity? Would it not be able to bench like 500ghz? lol (Fiber-Optics is a cable that uses light to transmit data... I also want that for my internet connection... *drools...*)

Haha... I was going for consistancy Itaniums come in at around 2.0Ghz... overclocking them double... would either take a dreadful amount of luck, or a dreadful amount of cooling, and probably something more substancial than Water Cooling :P Although, it has to be said, at 4Ghz with 8Meg Cache each... they would most Prestigiously Rock the Kasbah!

UltraSPARC! Haha... think I'd prefer 36 Itaniums to 72 UltraSPARCs You'd have to use Solaris! and StarOffice! Updating x86 Programs for a native 64-bit environment is one thing, but updating x86 Programs for a SPARC Environment... you might as well have somebody write them again for you
