Thank you both.

Now the research starts.

Hmm, that wasn't my tummy.
Ok, who didn't eat?

I will say, if going for a desktop, go with the i7 2500k since it has an unlocked multiplier and can be overclocked. Try to get at least 6gig of memory, preferably 8 and when you look at the vido cards, i generally stay 2 or 3 steps down from the top ($200-250 range).
