As Ron says it does depends on what you're looking for. Personally I do alot of graphics work and when I can, play the odd video game or crank out music. So all I really need is a dependable and powerful graphics card and speakers. My two essentials?
An ATI Radeon series graphics card. I've found anything from this series works great and they do well in updating the drivers.
Altec Lansing speakers and subwoofer, I absolutely adore these speakers and they sound great even working with my old ratty Soundblaster.
I'll be thinking about the rest as soon as i can afford it right now the main concern is keeping my current hunk of junk alive.
