    Now I am going to throw a wrinkly in here. To hold down proce I would suggest looking at the amd processors like the 6000 (dual-core 3ghz) and for linux compatibility I would get the asus m2v k8t890 and either corsair or ocz ram and an asus 8600gts 256 card...the total for that in U.S prices from xpcgear with ocz ram is $519.45 minus shipping

      Do you really think a 3 GHz AMD cpu on via chipset wins something against Intel? I highly doubt that.

        I didn't think he was going after outright speed but performance vs price and linux compatibility...speed on a via chipset is comparable in linux to nvidia and alot faster than the intel chipsets...now I am not going to get into a intel vs amd war as everyone has an opinion on that but performance vs price was the suggestion and just offering another option as both at this point will do everything most of us need to do farly easily..using amd optimizied kernels also helps in system response.

          I use a Gigabyte one with G33 and ICH9R without problems, the basic P35 ones from Gigabyte should work well too. ECS usally has no good BIOS to OC.

            Looking at recent reviews of the new 8800GTS 512mb, it is looking like a lot of bang for the buck. The card is currently around $350 at the most popular online places.

            HardOCP did a really nice review of the card, with real world benchmarking.
