There really isn't one inparticular brand that is the best. i prefer asus's they're reliable, have decent oc settings, and are usually resonably priced. as for the ram, i belive that would be called supply and demand, its just the way things are.
As for the argument about the intel/amd or nvidia/ati..
its proven that nvidia has the best card out right now, even the 8800gts almost doubles the performance of the x1950xtx in some cases, and they're equivilant in price. the conroe e6300 can be OC'd to beat a fx-62, and for $500 cheaper. and the qx6700 compared to anything AMD has is a joke. Now im not telling you to go with intel/nvidia, but it would be a wise decision to. considering you'd get alot more for price per performance.
i would suggest an e6600($315), 8800gts($480?), asus p5w dh deluxe($230), some corsair XMS2 2GB dominator series ($300), a 320gb sata2 ($100) and then go from there for the rest, it'd be a good build no doubt.
