Is it possible to create / How do I create complex configurable products?

Think computer configurator.  It is for a different line of products, but seems the best analogy to apply.

Select the base model, select processor, which then only has certain compatible motherboards, and then only certain memory, etc, from there.

I need a product attribute system that has dependencies and compatibilities.  Select this then you must select this type of thing.

Is this possible and if so how would I accomplish this with Magento?

Thanks,
Nathan

I am also very interested in a product configurator feature to help customers choose between similar products, or to help them choose product options for their specific applications.

maybe something like this configurator module for x-cart
http://www.x-cart.com/product_configurator.htm

a couple of configurators (not sure if this is what you were thinking of)
http://www.ram-mount.com
http://www.batteries.com (option #2, left column)
http://www.alienware.com/Configurator_Pages/area-51_alx_r7.aspx?SysCode=PC-AREA51-ALX-R7&SubCode;=SKU-DEFAULT

Yes, I was thinking something more like the x-cart configurator (although I don’t really like the way it displays) I am more of a fan of the alien ware type system.  But I also have a lot of clients that would find a product filtering system like the ram-mount.com one useful as well.

It sounds like this is something Magento supports out of the box yet.  Perhaps we need to write a module.  This would be my second Magento installation.  So I will poke around.

Thanks,
Nathan
