I second that. If you want the absolutely very top ( sounds nice eh ? :D ) of
x86 hardware, then go with an, say, intel corei7 975.
But you're fine with a little less than it, then go for say, an amd phenon x4
955. They're very nice chips too, and waaaaaay cheaper.
Core i7 975:
Phenom x4 955:

Me too (an x4, actually), and some radeons to play with gpu <-> cpu stuff.
