you've gotta give more information on your budget... if you want super good peformance for cheap, get an Opteron 165 which is clocked @ 1.8 GHz at stock but easily overclockable to 2.5 GHz without increasing vcore. Some steppings even allow the Opty to go to 3.0 GHz, like the CCB1E stepping. It goes for less than $400 Canadian, so I can only imagine how much cheaper it is in US dollars. But, if you've got extra money and you're a rich *******, FX-60, for sure, although the Intel's Presler cores kinda kicked the FX's butt recently, but I think those benches were complete bs. oh, and in my opinion, don't go for the 7900GT(X), get a 1900XT instead. It will definatley outlast the 7900, for sure.
oh, and read the reviews on that card, apparently the capacitators fall off really easy. Some guy is having his 4th replacement come in...
