Get a Core 2 Cpu something like a E6700. Get a Geforce 7950 Gx2 1 Gb DDR3 and 2 Gb of DDR2 800 ram.

and a big 30 inche display, awsome case, gaming mouse and keyboard, if you want to you could put the 7950's in sli mode and have 2 gb of video memory

Yea spending $5k alone on just a computer is not worth it, because theres always newer technology coming around the corner.

That doesn't make sense at all, in that case now is as good a time as any, I can say from experience, having spent more than that, I haven't regretted it in the least.
