I am with you on RAM, case and GPU

But why not

PSU: 1000w Corsair
HDD: 2x 128 gb SSD + 2x 1 GB Samsungs
Monitor: 2x 42" Samsung LED

Just an idea

I 800W was just the first number that came into my head.

And don't SSD's wearout over time? And I'd rather have small monitors for the PC and monster ones for the PS3.

The SSDs wear out no faster than mechanical drives really.

And I agree with the whole 24" OLED monitor (that would be worth about 5,000 or so).

Optical: BD-ROM burner
Screen: 17" 1200p resolution
Other: Memory card drive, HDMI, firewire, 4x USB
OS: Windows 7 x64 Pro

But my current laptop is:

CPU: Intel Core2Duo T5750 @2.0Ghz, 667Mhz FSB, 2MB cache
GPU: Ati 3470 256MB (plus 1.7GB shared RAM)
HDD: 250GB
Optical: BDROM and DVD -+ RW
Screen: 15.4"
OS: Windows 7 x64 Pro
Other: Memory card reader, HDMI, firewire, 4X USB

Obsidian anyone?

Obsidian anyone? Love these cases it has to be the best case on the planet (unless you know better of course). Love the grommets for cable management and the motherboard trap door to remove your heat sink and love the ... could go on for ever. Supremely well thought out case.

That's a lot of money for a mid-tower; I like the cable management idea.

Yeah, that is a great case. I've got an Antec P182 that I like quite a lot. One big advantage to this case is the cutaway for installing the CPU cooler without having to pull the mobo. It's a great idea....but not sure if it's worth 2x the price of the P182/183.

it's a full tower case and you can't really see but besides the grommets it also has two detachable cover housings which also cover up all the HDD and SDD slot mount bays. HDD's and SSD's are both hot swappable and the HDD fan takes air behind the mobo and sends it underneath and out through rear vents. The only faults that I have seen with the case is the window is a little low spec and when removing the protective clear film on the front panel if you do it too fast it takes off paint from the white corsair logo.

Each of the side panels have their own button at the rear of the case which when pressed releases the panel - OMG!!!
