If you have £4000 spare and want a PC that may be able to do some anti-aliasing in Crysis without requiring the frame rate to be measured in minutes, this is the combination of off-the-shelf components for you.
The YoYotech Fi7epower MLK1610 packs a Core i7-965 Extreme Edition CPU, a minimum of 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a dual-processor HIS Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics card that’d be more than capable of running Solitaire, plus 1TB of storage space. And an 80GB solid-state drive for quick boot-ups.
The Asus P6T motherboard supports both Nvidia’s SLI technology and AMD’s Crossfire dual-power graphics options, so there’s literally no end of slots for you to throw money at filling in order to get your frame rate up from 48 to a rock-solid 52.
It is, as you might expect a £4000 PC to be, completely insane. Still, it’s more interesting than writing and reading about yet another re-badged MSI Wind netbook.
