    I was thinking that we should have a dream pc section which goes like this

    pretend you have £6k to spend on a pc, NO more then that.

    rules

    -dont spend more then £6k
    -has to have links to websites so everyone can see what the bits look like and the specs
    -has to consist of cpu,gpu,tower,psu,ram,hdd,o/s,op drive,mobo,cooler and if u have money spare keyboard mouse and monitor
    -


    If anyone thinks of any , put em down and if people agree ill add them.

    good luck, hope u all enjoy the game/challenge:thumb:


    !!!WHERE I SAY DREAM PC I DONT MEAN LIKE THE MAGS DREAM PC'S, JUST A PC THAT WOULD SERVE YOU FOR GAMING AND WHATEVER ELSE U LIKE DOING!!!

    This is kind of pointless. A dream PC within a 2500 quid budget? Is there even such a thing? I mean it can't be very dream-ish in that price range.

    Indeed - I'd wager that many people on Bit already have a PC that's had more invested than that... You could probably blow that on CPU/RAM/Mobo without even touching graphics and case...

    I would have thought that a "dream pc" by definition would be without a defined limit of any kind, especially budget.

    i7 980x Extreme is £864.78, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9 is £465.99, 2 x 2GB XFX HD 5870 in crossfire is £881.76 and 6GB (3x2GB) Corsair DominatorGT is £310.34 = £2522.77 so i'm over budget and have no case, psu, cpu cooler, water cooling, fan controller, hard drives inc SSD, DVD/Bluray drives, O/S, monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, sound card etc etc or any special mods to make it "dream" rather than extreme performance.

    mate you need to change the budget limit, i'll say make it a bit more reasonable. People spend over £1k when they just trying not to spend too much and dream pc will definitely be well above £2.5k.

    Couldn't be arsed to find exact prices as this isn't going to be anywhere near the £6k, but here's what I'd get for my main computer if I started from scratch and money wasn't an issue;

    i7 930
    X58-mobo
    3*2 GB ram
    256 GB fast SSD
    2*1,5 TB mirrored
    HD5970
    Silverstone Fortress FT02
    Proper PSU
    (+maybe a BR-drive just for good measure)

    Then the peripheral:
    Mionix Naos 5000 + Steelseries 9HD
    Logitech illuminated
    Proper 30" screen
    As for sounds I'd hook this to an existing sound system/get an AV-amp + two or five speakers, depending on what's left of the budget

    Really I just don't see ANY point in spending more money than that on a gaming/general use computer. It'll all just go down the drain in no time at all. Maybe this thread just isn't for me, but just thought I'd throw my opinion to the mix.

    £2,500 is a lot to me too. I agree with Jipa that I'd never consider spending above £2.5k since within 6 months the price depreciation would be pretty crazy. A £1,500 computer can play 99.9% of today's games on maxed out settings..

    Anywhoo, with £2,500 I'd probably get the CustomPC 'crazy but cool' one - i.e. the Intel Corei7-980X CPU, 6GB of Corsair Dominator RAM, HD 5970, OCZ 120GB SSD, 1TB F3 and Creative X-Fi Titanum Pro sound card (assuming you already have a keyboard, monitor, etc)

    We're not saying 2 and a half grand is small change, but you said DREAM computer which just won't happen in this price range.

    It's the same as asking us about our dream car and specify a budget that only allows for a BMW. Well my dream car happens to be a bimmer but most people are after Lambos, ferraris and that sort of thing. And with PCs performance is almost everything, with cars it isn't so you can get away with a cheaper dream.

    But then what's dream-y about it? That's a PC.

    can a member of bit tech delete this topic please

    i was merely trying to get people to build a nice pc, NOW we could all go away and think of a pc that is worth so much money, for example copy the ibm roadrunner which costs a mere $125million. i posted it at 4;01am so i couldnt think of a better title for it.

    but never mind i tried

    Most of us already built a nice PC but you don't even allow us to post those.
