I am currently working on my setup being an incredible HDPC, not ultimate.. but that is the goal, perfection. I am open to suggestions on how i can make this better.. much better.

My current setup is as follows:
e8400
8800GT
6GB Ram (needed for HD replay)
2TB HD

Display1:
23' 1080P Asus - Games such as CODMW2
Display2:
42' 1080 Samsung Plasma - Movies, Games such as SF4

5.1 Surround Sound
Condenser Mic w/ Module Interface

I have on this computer over 20 videos games such as:
Modernwarfare 2
Prototype
Dragon Age
Bioshock 2
etc

Over 200 HD movies in 1080p such as:
Inglorious Bastards
Menace II Society
Babel
Sin City
etc..

I can also Record Music
Karaoke

Wireless 360 Controller
Media Center Remote

any ideas to make better?

I would consider using a separate drive for the boot drive and the storage drive. I use an 80 GB boot drive on one of my HTPCs and have a spare I keep backed up with Ghost clone. This allows me to recover the boot drive independent from the storage drive. Also I use a couple of TB network drives as well as several USB drives for storage. 2TB goes by very quickly. I have about 6 TB total with about 4 TB filled.
