I'm there with you. My case came today so I can assemble my new rig tonight.
I went the:
AMD quad core
750GB raid 1
Only 4GB of memory right now
Scythe SCKBT-1000 120mm Sleeve Kabuto 6 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

Windows 7 is now available with MAPS so I am changing over my whole network this weekend to SBS 2008 and Windows 7.

I am an ATI fan myself. I am running the ASUS 4850 that I purchased about 8 months ago and it works great for me. My board has crossfire ability and I'm gonna get a second one next month. The price has dropped by about $70 from when I got it.

And again, what's the rig used for? Gaming, Graphics, CAD, etc?

I like Intel and AMD depending on what it's being used for. I have a Core 2 Duo desktop and a AMD Dual Core HTPC (Home Theater PC).

This is what we did in the 70's with cars. But todays cars all almost impossible to work on so men have switched to modding PC's. Weird.
