Stoner's recommendations are good, except I would substitute a Western Digital or Maxtor hard drive in place of the Hitachi/IBM. I never liked IBM desktop drives; I had too many of them die.
My only other comment, if you want to stick with Intel processors, that's fine. I prefer Intel over AMD, but no need to get into a debate about that here. Throw all the statistics and lab results out the window, both AMD and Intel make very good processors. I honestly feel the decision someone makes is personal.
No, I like women.
