    Instead of asking for the answers(especially to such a fundamental question), you should try and find the answers. That way you actually learn something.

    I read books and magazines to learn about PCs and built my first PC shortly after.

    it could be

    amd athlon
    amd sempro
    celeron
    pentium 4

    then your motherboard and RAM memory

    the rest... hard drive... CD DVD ROM

    Have a look here for some ideas. I think his total is just over $1300 + tax, but you could use that as a starting point then look for some slightly lower spec parts, perhaps only 1GB memory and a 3000+ rather than a 3500+.

    Definately go with an AMD64 no matter what!

    What parts do you currently have that will migrate to the new build?
    Hard drives?
    Opticals?

    Spend big on the core components- motherboard, CPU, RAM and power supply and then work in the rest as you can.

    Your most fundamental decision will be whether or not to go SLI...I chose not to, betting that the new 512mb cards will keep pace with twin cards of a lesser spec, but I could be wrong.
