    Not sure of the specifics but it's an i7 with 16GB Ram and a mediocre graphics card... apart from the graphics card the thing is a pig.

    I forgot
    Intel i3 2100 running at 3.10GHZ
    8GB of RAM
    Around 5TB of HDD space on 4 different HDD.
    GeForce GTX 650
    700W PSU
    Cheapish MSI motherboard, but it gets the job done.

    Not counting the GPU and the HDDs, this rig cost me $280 to build including a case. The GPU was $75 (received as a christmas present, replacing a GeForce 440GT that was originally in the build). This thing has played everything I've thrown at it with medium-high settings with the old 440 and max/high settings with the 650.

    EDIT: I don't really had a dream build though TBH. Hell, replace my current build with a 1000W PSU, an i7, and a GTX 680 and I'd be set.

    For about 250 I build a decent machine capable of running Planetside 2 at about 25-35 fps and hawken at 35-40 fps, I kept my hd's and dvd burner from my old pc.
    I have AMD Phenom x2 quad core at 2.6 ghz
    Asus M5A78l-mlx mobo
    8 Gb Crucial Ballitix DDR3
    Nvidia 9600gso 512 (got for 26 dollars used) great card for the price.
    480w psu and 3 case fans
    If I overclock my graphics card I can increase my fps in both games by about 20 fps.

    gigabyte mobo
    i5 @ 2.8 ghz
    16 gb ram, slomo (cheapest)
    nvidia geforce gtx 670 2 gb @ 980 mhz (mem 1500 mhz)
    sb x-fi platinum

    Intel® Core i7-3970X Extreme
    16-32 gb ram at highest frequency possible
    16 fastest SSDs perhaps ocz in raid each 1 tb each. so like 4 raided for main disk (windows will be on this), 4 for music disk, 4 for game disk, 4 for music app disk.
    That way I have 1+1+1+1 terrabyte ala 4 tb.
    Latest creative sound card, plus a hi-end studio sound card, preferable internal, but okay with external aswell. VERY low latency, and hi quality is requirement.
    Fattest nvidia or amd gfx card in crossfire/sli. - 2X 690 GTX or 2X HD 7950. Preferable the nvidia onces. Either way, I want custom coolers which are super silent.
    A motherboard which handles super many ssd and the processor
    A case which can room all the ssds and still not weight beyond oblivion.

    That's surprisingly doable. Sure, 1TB SSDs cost 2 grand each, and the extra Sata controllers also cost a lot, and most will not run full speed, but its doable.
