Depending on just how much you wanted to spend, ram should be same for all options: $90 amir http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Athlon II 635 x4 $120, mobo $80 (if you have a vid card, otherwise, you'll want a 785G, 790GX, or 890GX http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... +$40 can get the 955be http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... Something on the AMD route that might be interesting if you can wait is the Phenom II x6. Will be about $300 or under, get a 890GX mobo and ram, and you'll still be under $600 total. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/PAX-AMD-Phenom-II-X6,1... Intel (both would require a GPU), the i5 750 would be a great chip and total around $500. You'd actually have enough to get the i7 860. Both are quad cores, but the 860 is hyper threading, so the programs (if multi threaded) will think there's 8. It's $80 more than the i5 750. Just watch the USB 3.0 and Sata III stuff on intel.
