You'll find some recommendations in the post linked in my signature.

You'll want an Intel chipset and possibly a switch to an ATI card.

Vista 64 bit

A good PSU... all covered in the linked post below.

i would go with a 4850, a good P45, X38 or X48 (in order from worst to best although all three are good) and the corsair 750watt model i have one and i couldn't be happier unless i had modular cables but that adds cost so.... good luck if you have any other questions just ask

Proximon nice guide i haven't read everything yet but i like what i have read very nice

I think you should go with a Radeon 4850 1GB for the video card instead and go with a P45 based motherboard with two PCI-E 2.0 slots.
