There are so many possibilities considering on what you look at as a new PC,
what your budget is. I like Lang's 2 cents a lot--. It's very good advice;
and also remember time wise if you are willing to wait a little until early
next year the choice of new dual cores whether laptops or desktops is going
to increase dramatically and because of the introduction of Vista and all of
the competition your choices will increase dramatically as will the sales
and your price options, including the battles of the duals and the quads.
These companies will be going all out to ride the wave of Vista to boost
their PC sales.
Even if you don't build your own you can get perspective from articles like
