    I haven't kept up with hardware lately, so suggestions are very welcomed.

    This is going to replace my current desktop which is a former server. Dual p3 600's with a gig of ram and 250gb storage.

    I plan to run Windows XP 64 until Vista is released.

    I think for a monitor I want a Dell 2007WFP 20.1-inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD and may consider getting 2 of them.

    This box will basically be used for internet, email, office applications, small IIS server, file serving, multimedia, graphic design, and mild gaming.

    I want something fast, reliable, classy, and can be usable for 5 years if need be. Preference is for an aluminum case and everything in black.

    Why windows x64? It is more of a pain than anything.

    At this point it might be in your best interest to wait for what is on the horizon from intel with conroe.

    Driver support in Window x64 isn't great... I would just stick with XP for now.
