Does your software favor nvidia drivers or will an ATI graphics card work for you?

I am thinking i7 920, x58 motherboard, 12GB DDR3-1600 RAM, 1TB Samsung F3 HDD. Probably an SSD for OS and applications.

I don't have any preference for the GPU. Could be either one.

Check out the "recommended builds by usage" thread and look at the enthusiast-extreme build. Increase the RAM from 6GB to 12GB and instead of the huge 5970 graphics card, drop back to a more reasonable 5850 or even 5770.
