Default Your ultimate computer?

Okay, heres the senario:

you have an unlimited budget, and need two indentical computers, and a server. What do you get. (any processcer, and tv tuner and quad monitors are a requirement, along with at least 10 TB of HD space total.)

My parts to come later.

Yeah, people would just go to new egg, go under each computer part category, and organize them by highest priced, then choose that one for each part. But if this scenario was True, then i wouldnt mind braggin!

Besides, I'm quite happy with my Compaq :P Maybe I'll build another one later once this Compaq starts acting up...

A Pentium Pro, with 8MB RAM and a hard drive with 512MB and Windows ME.

Hehe.. thats my ultimate computer.

Just kidding man, but of course everyone is going to pick the best of the best hardware out right now. I don't think the answers would vary much, at all..

Good attempt at trying to create a discussion though..

lhuser, you would need a pci scsi adaptor as the mobo does not support scsi. also, acryllic (sp?) cases have terrible problems such as chipping and bad heat issues. also also, add a phase change cooler in there and your set!
