No, joke post that you were serious about having the best of anything. I actually thought you were being facetious. Anyway, as long as you are happy, but judging from your setup, you're in serious need of some humility.

With Vista coming out in the next several weeks XP will go the way of 98 in the next few years.
I do not understand what you are comparing your system(s) to for the title of the thread you chose.
They are nice systems but not "best" in general.
Using "best" in the computer world only lasts a few weeks but if best is a referral to the best you could put together for your purposes, choices and use I am happy for you. Enjoy the sysems.

Your setup is best!?

Fourth PC ...WOW I only have two. Yes your setup is best.

Ask yourself mortal , do you have as much displacement as me ? The answer is no unless you have a Windmere fan sub.

I hope you're fifteen 'cause that's the only way you could justify believing what you say. Spending more doesn't equate to being better. It just means your wallet weighs less.

I am, like, impressed.

So...you are saying that, out of the ~$6.5 billion people on the planet, you have the "best setup" - better then anyone else? What exactly is it the best setup for?

Should we call Guinness World Records?

LOL. Typical fake bragging on the internet.

There is always someone out there that gives you opinion of a product that they don't even own.

Aw hell nah. Mine got a 1080p24 projector in a 2.35 200ft wide projector screen with
a 7.1 receiver, amp, pre amp, 11.4 speaker setup, blu-ray, hd-dvd, and all monster
cables because they make your video into super high definition.

Think i can beat it too:

CM Stacker case 700w PSU
intel QX6700
2gb pc1066 ram
Asus P5b-deluxe
GeForce 8800GTS
4x 500gb SATA2
2x 250gb SATA2
2x 24" Samsung LCDs


So, yeah, keep trying. And mine is considered budget nowdays.

PS. I don't think i spent much of anything on my OS...

nice system, it's probably still blazingly fast. i almost bought an x2 4400 system back in the day..
the x6700 is over-priced

amdfanboy,

Nice setup. Guess you have some awesome multiplayer fights with friends. Happy for you.

thecodeman's setup seems like the one I consider buying this fall (by then it's hardly "best", though)...
