I think I have you beat. Pic is a bit outdated.

Primary workstation is a hex core i7, 24GB RAM, 240GB Intel 530 SSD
Primary server is a dual quad core 5400 Xeon, 56GB RAM, 55TB mixed SSD, 15k RPM and 7200RPM hard drives
Secondary server is a dual quad core 5600 Xeon, 24GB RAM and 6 Velociraptors

I need to take a new pic of the monitors but it's 6 LG 23" LED LCD's

Internet is just 50/5 Timewarner till Google gets around to rolling out the fiber they promissed a few months ago.

Well you have servers. I don't have any use for them haha. I also forgot to mention my SSD which is also a 530 then a external 500GB HDD.

I could also have a ton of monitors but I needed a Laptop as a desktop is useless to me.

I also know a kid who has like 4 monitors I believe and uses one of them for just a clock lol.

I am so ridiculously jealous, you have no idea. I almost bought a bunch of cisco business class routers and set up a Domain controller between my house and about 5 other relative's, just to say I did. But...money...you know...

I use a somewhat modest rig:

AMD FX8150 8 Cores - OC'ed to 4.4-ish ghz
ASUS M5A97 EVO Board (970 chipset)
AMD Radeon 6600HD (I don't do any gaming)
2TB Seagate drive (Adding an SSD soon)
Corsair Vengeance 8gb DDR3-1600
Two ASUS 22" monitors (DVI & VGA)
Corsair H100i Dual 120mm cooling system
NZXT Hue led light strip (to make it look purty)

I don't use it for much, but it dang well does the trick, in style too.

Inside, LED lit

Picture of the case

If you ever think something I post is ridiculous or uneducated, just remember that I probably learned it from here.

Who needs dual monitors... At home I have a 42" monitor. I ran out of real estate on my desk for the second 21" monitor. That used to be my research set-up.

Excuse the mess

I chose dual monitors because I prefer having a decent amount of screen width, so I can span four windows across comfortably, as opposed to having four very tall and narrow windows in one monitor, no matter how big the monitor is. Also, It's more comfortable. If I had a 42" monitor, It would be annoying to have it a foot and a half from my face.
