    I'd skip out on making a computer and rent Google's server for 15 minutes.

    in that case I would just buy the most expensive parts I could find in order to re-sell.

    Probably just check my facebook and see what's the dealio on the GBAtemp scene.

    Edit (gave it a second thought):Google keeps tabs on people searches, so I'd just pull up the history on searches for shit like Fisting, and maybe see what my neighbor likes to fap too.

    To burn a little more money, opt out of getting any of the cheap cases listed there and get a specially made jewel encrusted one instead.

    edit: or get the case and glue sapphires onto it or something

    I'd build this, but then with a Corsair H70 and a better case. And more screens.... And an ssd with more capacity.
    That would be completely awesome [​IMG]

    edit; The software I would just download even if I had 100000$ [​IMG]

    I'd replace the SSDs with Crucial C300 250GB drives, get liquid cooling in and probably get at least 2 HD5970s hooked up to the loop with EyeFinity 6 (or wait a lil bit, if possible, for the next generation of cards coming out next month). I'd probably also go for a custom case to perfectly suit the water cooled rig. Even then, I don't think it'd use up even a third of $100,000, so I'd possibly do what someone else did (in CustomPC magazine), and create 2 computers in the same custom case, using Xeons for the second and making it a dedicated server with plenty of storage. That way you can have the server host your games and store all your crap whilst your dedicated computer plays the crap out of it with near 0 latency.

    EDIT: Good point: software. With everything left over, I'd raid Steam, Impulse and a couple others for everything they're worth (that's worth getting at least) [​IMG]
    EDIT2: Also, I'd replace the keyboard with a G19 and include a good BOSE headset.

    A good idea is a good idea. Originality does not come from being the first to come up with an idea, but doing everything in your own, unique, original style. Consdering I'd be building a custom case, there's plenty of room for creativity and originality in that.
