Build me the greatest computer you could possibly build!?

Alright, I don't mean it literally. I just want to see how good of a computer you could make, and how much it would cost. I'm talking good, REALLY good. I want to see amazing specs, that would give me the smoothest, cleanest experience of all time.

Thanks! :D

It is rated #1 with WeiShare, PC Matic and Pass Mark.

It'll cost you about $8K to build though:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Intel Core i7 980X Hexacore CPU @ 4.7 GHz
Asus Rampage III Extreme
12 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 in Tri-Channel at 2000 MHz
2 x GTX295 in Quad SLI configuration
Integrated X-fi Audio
Samsung 305T 30 inch 6ms LCD monitor
2 x Samsung 245BMW 24 inch LCD monitors
1000 Watt Antec PSU
LG 8X Blu-Ray RW
CoolerMaster HAF922 Case w/3 x 200mm fans
9 x Intel 160 GB 34 nm SSD drives in RAID6
Areca 1231ml PCI-E x8 controller with 4GB cache
Ideazon Merc Stealth Gaming Keyboard
Logitech MX-518 Gaming Mouse
Xeno Gaming NIC with 400 MHz NPU and 128 MB cache

There is another problem with Unknown's configuration. The Tylersburg chipset can only support up to three PCI-E slots running at x16. Sure you can put four GTX480 cards in, but one of them will drop to x8, which isn't what you want with SLI. You can always run 3 Way SLI and make the board running at x8 dedicated to Phys-X, but it's pretty much a waste. I'm waiting for Nvidia to release the GTX495. This will have two GPUs on one card, making true uncompromised Quad SLI w/Fermi a reality.

Also, Quad SLI isn't worth it if you aren't running on a 30 inch monitor. At resolutions of 1920x1200 and below Quad SLI doesn't really gain you much over 2-way SLI. You can find 30 inch monitors for less than $1000, but the response time will be too slow for gaming. Expect to pay $1200-$2000 for a good 30 inch monitor suitable for gaming.

@Scott: I think you will need to switch to a 1000 Watt PSU once you get your second XFX 5870. I tried running a pair of 4870X2s with an 850 Watt PSU and sometimes it would shut down during gaming until I updated the PSU to 1000 Watt.
