    Go for a 64-bit AMD. I'm not sure what the current winner is in terms of Athlon 64 vs. FX series vs. Opteron, but they're all better than any Intel for the price.

    64-bit intel pwns all. I'd get a D925CXVLK and a 3.4GHz 64-bit P4 and 2 gig of DDR-533 low-latency. yummy.

    as for video cards, nVidia 6xxx cards are beating the ATi X-series right now.
