What is the application?
Most likely go with a new (high Ghz, high FSB) Intel Dual Core P4 or Xeon and an Nvidia Quadro card or Wildcat Realizm or ATI FireGL, if you're running any sort of 3D program that I'm thinking of, like Maya or something along those lines.
Orrr, get a dual G5 dual core computer with Quadro, thats 4 logical processors. (if you dont want to spend money this wont be an option however, >$3000)
Systems like that are designed for workstation graphics.

Powermac G5
Dual 2.0ghz G5 PPC
2.0Gb DDR2 533mhz RAM
Nvidia Quadro FX 4500 512mb


That's without a monitor ...

Building a PC would offer more flexibility, but Apple does make computers of nice quality, especially for what you want to do.

Let us know.
