6) ports needed atleast 2 usb, rj45, rj11, firewire, media out, built in cam mics, in & output portssound, blue tooth, wifi any additions from bhpians

A dell inspiron 1520 with the nvidia 8600 graphic card and 2gb ram and with would set you back by 55 grand and should make a good deal.Also check out the dell XPS series if you have a higher budget and want more performance.
