Dream Computer How Close to Full EMU?
If You had $10,000 Budget What Would you Buy For your Dream Computer and how close to full Emulation do you think you could get without speed hacks?

Oops I said nvidia Wrong in the poll oh well.

I'm gonna go with ATI XFX HD-597X 4gb Each totaling About 16gb of Video Memory.

and I'm gonna CrossFire 4 of them Which will cost $4800.00 Rounded up. For just the Card them selfs.

Now onto the Mother Board MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 $200.00 Rounded up

Which will rock your socks off.

Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition $276.00 Rounded up

This will Make you drool.

Then i'm gonna over Clock that processor to 3.8 Ghz With water cooling.

Hard Drive Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1CCA 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive $620.00 not rounded.

You will be flying By the seat of your pants. Watch out for ***** stains.

If the purpose is PCSX2 emulation. You can just drop 3 graphics cards, and better take the $1000+ intel CPU (with bigger frequency instead of big core number). Bigger figures are not the same as the best.

Anyway, me with 10 000$ what I will do in 3 step:
+ Spend 1000 $ in good and standard PC now. Actually I thinks I can emulate faster with my AMD 965BE than your 1090T ^^

+ Paid 8 000$ some developers to improve the emulator

+ Then buy a new 1 000$ PC 3-4 years later. That will probably be much more faster that you current PC Wink (at least for PCSX2 emulation)

In fact after additional thought, I will buy +100 ps2 games Smile Anyway I will never have the time to play them...
my 955 is now oc`d to 4.0ghz and i get perfect framerates with emulation on a 9800gtx+
also the 1090t is not a gaming cpu because thuban cant utilize all 6 cores in games yet the quadcores can utilize all 4 cores at once making my cpu around 16ghz!
if i wanted to spend that mutch i would get 4 5870`s because my motherboard already supports quad crossfirex in 8x8x8x8x configuration (very fast bandwith) and add 2 more sticks of ddr3 1.6ghz ram
about £1500 not bad ehCool
My computer would have just one card, as any multi gpu technology is flawed too much right now.
Cooling for the whole system would be a nice water cooling setup with some tripple radiator. Fits any requirement. Tongue2
I'd got with a nice GTX480 right now, just because Nvidia doesn't have any better. The cooling will take care of it.
For the CPU and mainboard I'd really wait for Intel's "Sandy Bridge" series, scheduled for later this year.
If I had to decide now, I'd take that 6 core offer Intel has and put it on a feature rich and OC friendly board.
For RAM, I'd go with 3 x 4GB sticks that run at least 1600Mhz for some OC headroom.

System drive would be a single 128GB Sandforce controller driven SSD. One more of those for coding and some games.
2 of those 2TB economic disk drives from WD or Samsung can do the data storage.

Dunno how much that'd all cost but it'd certainly be under $3000 and it'd be one beast of a system.
Very fast in all applications that matter, yet still silent due to a balanced setup and the water cooling. Smile
Oh this is gonna be fun! =P

My dream Computer would have the latest graphics card... in dual! Two 5970 ATI Radeon HD's!
Then a single processor, that would be Intel 17 980X! Woot!
Oh and I'll load myself with 24G of RAM with the best one they have!
Um... 2 TB of HDD.
Uh... the best motherboard that is cool and easily overclockable.
and the best fan based cooler for mah CPU!
If I wait till next year
could save that money and wait for the 8 core Sandy Bridge with ATI's latest graphics cards, two 68XX or 69XX Radeon HD's!
Same amount of Ram and hard drive
Better Motherboard for Sandy Bridge with USB 3.0 and SATA 3!
BIGGER case, better cooler and a better PSU!

Hmm hmm, yea I would love it! =3
Cpu: Intel i7 920 @ 2.67Ghz (3.6Ghz OC)
Mobo: MSI X58 Pro-E
GPU: ATI Radeon 5850 Basic

And me! Tongue
I wish I had 10k to throw on a computer. Let me think...

Rampage III 1336 motherboard
6x4GB of DDR3 1600 RAM
4-6x 256 MB SSDs
Windows 7 Ultimate
2x GTX 480s
Good water cooling solution

That is I estimate $9000 worth of hardware. I can dream can't I? Tongue

Western Digital Caviar Black WD2001FASS 2TB 7200 RPM $180
TOTAL: $8,960

The rest of the funds will be for watercooling for some decent overclocking. Hmm, is there a way to make liquid nitrogen a feasible long term solution? Tongue2

Stupidly expensive build but that's what I'd build right now if I can afford it. Actually, let me rephrase that since technically, I can afford it, I just think it's a huge waste of money. That's the system I'll build if I'm a multi-millionaire or billionaire and can easily afford to spend $10,000 every few months on hardware. Needless to say, it will be replaced as soon as the next latest and greatest tech comes out. I can dream, can't I? Rolleyes

Granted, it probably still won't run everything at full speed but if virtualization becomes sophisticated enough, the above build should be able to handle 2~4 users playing PCSX2 at the same time while running tasks in the background. Laugh

Add a top of the line water cooling system on top for another $400 or so and then I'm done and won't need to update my PC for 3-5 years.

Put the rest in a high yield savings to help my daughter's college fund Wink

My current system would do for Full Emulation speed on 99% of all PS2 games (excluding Shadow of the Colossus). Haven't ran into another game that doesn't go for above 60FPS so far.
