Hardware Configurations

This is one of my favorite pages. When I search around the net, I often find people that have built a truely wonderful rig. Well this is where I collect those great pieces of work, and its also where you can submit your own computer configuration.

My idea is that by reviewing the Ultimate Computer pages we will learn the basics needed to make an informed decision about the hardware that goes into our computers, and in an attempt to keep up with technology, we can post suggestions on New Ultimate Computers and configurations here. That information will feed back into the guides as I continuously update them, thus eventually we will always have a SOLID recommendation for the Ultimate Computer.

Submissions should include as much information as necessary to understand what makes the rig worth considering. I have a few very nice machines listed here, and I look forward to reading your suggestions.

A great resource for this kind of thing can be found at the TweakGuides forums *** Ultimate Forum ***
