Originally I'd figured I'd shoot the moon and buy a mega-machine for and obscene amount of money, but then I realized that not only do I not have mega-money, but at some point one reaches a point of diminishing returns.
I want this machine to be ridiculously fast, but I want the price/performance ratio to be ideal.
Here's what Jeff and I finally came up with.
In the coming few weeks we'll put it together, and then add Jeff's special touch which will include sound damping and overclocking. There will be pics and details on the performance before and after, and we'll see what this $1900 machine will be capable of.
