'overkill' can get really expensive in computers. What's your budget?

You forgot the dual 27" IPS displays.
With 18 gigs of vram you could play an instance of Crysis 2 maxed on each monitor, lol.

You could probably get an entire wall covered. Then get some 3D glasses...

If I ever win the lottery...

If you wanted to go for the entire wall, a handful of well aligned projectors would be best I think. Something like:

Don't forget the golden mouse and keyboard.

At this point, if you're willing to pay for bulbs, it's generally cheaper to buy a projector over a large format TV.

In all honesty I'm trying to picture what a normal consumer would need that much for. afaik it's mainly used to cache textures... 6g alone is probably enough for 2 instances of the hardest hitting game there is (whatever that may be atm).
