@ Puddles post,

wow! The core i5 is so new, it still has that new silicon smell. That system is significantly faster and getting one now means that you will get max system life before obsolescence.

After some thought, I am thinking I will go with the i5 /Intel motherboard route, although I may go with a couple of Muffin's suggestions as well. When I get my list together, I will post it so I can make sure everything is simpatico.
