if you do alot of gaming i would definetely recommened an AMD 64, the +3000 was the best bang for the buck there for a while, which is when i got mine...
if you do alot of multi-tasking, multimedia, video editing and stuff like that i would say go with Intel
and as for all your junk
put it on some DVDs or snag another hard drive or something.
the system i have now is very similar to the one Boreas is dreaming about, i have the same CPU,mobo, and RAM i just have an ATI Radeon X800 XL, a 80GB Western Digital SATA-HD and a 550W Aspire Chameleon PSU.
