Gimme a price range and I will build you a machine to suit your needs. Also, which would you say is a larger priority, gaming or animation?

What would help is the price range? Chances we'll recomend you with a Athlon 64 Socket 939 system because they're fast and very popular. So i we know your price range we can work everything else out.

Ahhhh.....again the price range, but best=AMD, but for animation and applications if ti isn't going to be used for gaming mostly, I would recommend a P4 w/ HT @ 3 or so GHz. I see a difference in the performance of apps w/ an intel P4 vs. the performance of apps with an AMD. Ahhh, go from the processor down.

If your going to be rendering heaps of video, you could go for dual processors.

Zenyora, those are both for high-end users. Lets talk processor first. For Pentium i suggest the first link, AMD the second.

I suggest clawhammer cores, but your not gonna want to spend 300$ on a 3400 clawhammer.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 - $779

GIGABYTE "GA-K8NXP-SLI" NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Chipset Motherboard - $255


OCZ Premier Value Series, Dual Channel Kit 184-Pin 1GB (512MBx2) DDR PC-3200 - $168

2* Leadtek nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card - $428

2* Western Digital Raptor 36.7GB 10,000RPM SATA Hard Drive - $214

There's all your basic parts, you can build around that and you should be all right. The FX-53 will provide outstanding performance in games, but with the larger cache it will be better for multitasking and other apps at the same time.
