if I had the money. I would bother with building the most super computer possible. I would just simply build the most computerized house ever filled with lots and lots of the best gaming rigs neatly installed and set up in places like the hot tub haha. and oh yes I have a big imagination. lol

Same thing I was thinkin Nerm, all over the house and in the cars, heck Id build some kind of computerized electric gokart thing that could do some amazing speeds.


So kudos to Congress for literally..uhh...taking a giant s*** on the poorest people in the country...because they deserve it! Well done folks!

Are all of you guys forgetting about Cray Supercomputers?

i don't think i could be bothered with the space it takes up and general maintenance...

heh, could you even put an AGP card in it?


With a Cray, you can do software rendering and have full details and run at 1,000+ fps easy. Who needs an AGP slot?

i'm sure even with teraflops of computing muscle it couldn't run UT2004 (or many other games) without a LOT of faffing about...

not exactly lan-party portable either :D

:withstupid: exactly.. supercomputers are designed to do much more useful things than playing games.. If you can call nuclear warhead and defense research a useful thing (I know they do good humanitarian things as well).

If you're interested in a good pre-built gaming comp, you should probably go here:
http://www.alienware.com/ (I just hope you really meant money isn't an issue)

if you want a really good gaming comp build it yourself. don't go to compusa, bestbuy, circuit city, or alienware and get a pre-built.

BEST gaming system EVER? Yep, it'd be PCI-Express, with Dual Nvidia 6800's in their SLI whosisawhatsit, with whatever Intel calls their 3.6ghz Socket 775 P4, some pimp Sound card, SCSI 15K Hard-drives in Raid, and of course A Mach II and several Air Conditioning units...Yep...

Or you could just get a nice, quaint P4 3.2ghz, 6800Ultra (AGP), 1 gig of RAM, Two 100gb SATA drives connected in Raid 0, your usual DVD-ROM/R/RW combo stuff...Some happy little fans, a pretty little heatsink.

Really, you stick a 6800Ultra in almost anything and it will scream.
