I'd take the cash. Sure, I'd use 1/4 of it to buy a computer, 1/4 to buy a new mountain bike, and maybe the remaining 5k on a motorcycle.

I'll take the cash and build a nice computer for me and spend the rest on my family and charity.

Definitely cash, I could build a good system for 2-3k and pocket the rest.

Even if I didn't have a decent pc I'd build a new one for FAAAAR less than that. Really you'd have to be crazy to spend 10k on a pc since it's just gonna be outdated anyway... I'd rather spend around 1k euros and upgrade some parts every year or so.

Well, I have a little over $2K in my machine now and it takes on anything I toss at it. I am considering going form 2-way SLI to 3-way SLI though. I would take the cash I think though. Use it for upgrades to Kepler and Ivy Bridge next year and get some parts for my RX-8. Been wanting a Racing Beat exhaust and ram air intake. I'm sure I can find a few more things to spend the cash on too. lol

I'd take the cash, its like the same between a gift card to a shop worth $10,000 or just the cash. Its the same value just limited.

I'd take the cash and have the freedom and enjoyment out of building it myself

Build a nice system for about 4 to 5k and save the rest.

$10K and you would just get a second 6950? You are doing it wrong.

Nope cause one is enough for me...so 6950 Cf would be great. (which preforms not much less then a GTX580 SLI)

Take the cash, its the smart move. Take the cash spend 2-5k on a new computer system(s) that is sure to annoy the piss out of the ppl living in the apartments around me. Then save the rest for all those little things in life that need to be paid.

Cash, the only way I could justify a 10K PC is dual Xeons and a Quadro 6000, but since I don't need those, that would be a huge waste.
