    Ok, you want the best, right? I mean, "THE" best, ok, take a look at these specs, but don't choke on the measly $7,000 price tag, ok?

    Lian Li Tyr PC-888 Blue Aluminum ATX Full Tower - $369.99

    Corsair HX1000W Power Supply - $249.99

    Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition - $989.99

    I had to remove three of the URLs because you are limite to 10 on Yahoo Answers, but you should check the latest prices on those with Newegg. Prices may have gone up or down since I did this analysis a few weeks ago.

    Hi

    Selwyn you need to give a budget on this as you could have an 8 core processor with 16g/bit ram.and some rather expensive items that you will not ever use.

    yes 8 core processors are around and with a 4tb drives as well.
