Hi ranchers,

Could somebody post some hardware suggestions for how to make a desktop system that will run builds lightning fast? I am working on a big thick client project and the build is A) Out of my control and B) Annoyingly slow.

What matters most?
Memory? How much?
HD spin speeds/throughput?
Processor clock speed? # of cores?

I was thinking about a Mac Pro. But also thinking of building my own...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Budget = $2500 to $5000

Thanks!

Tom

For that kind of money it seems to me it can not go wrong and you can have it all.
