get an AMD, they tend to out perform Intels at gaming and graphics from what I have heard, and they are 64 bit, meaning that when 64 bit software comes out you will notice a significant boost in the already good performance, also keep in mind that AMDs tend to run cooler and they are at a lower revolution, meaning you could be in for an overclocking frenzy...

EDIT: i thought yu were just getting a processor not a complete... in that case get a computer with an AMD 64 2800+

get an amd64 cuz yes they now have pcix and get at least a 9800pro or it would barely run the good games coming out like bf2, fear stalker and so on.

edit :: also get at least a gig of ram, if you cant get a 64bit at least 9800pro and the gig of ram than wait til you can.
