I've heard this question a lot recently from friends and stuff, I guess because Christmas = new systems. But it honestly depends on what you'll be using it for, there are many different options for many different people. First think about what you would want to do with it.

AMD pro. 1.3 or better, western digital 40 gig hard drive, etc. Custom built is better than a shelf machine. I am a newbie to linux, but I like it alot better than windows (RH 7.1 ). Optical mouse, and at least a hundred other things.

I Agree with AMD & big hardrive. Spend money in Memory, you will be pleased every day to run 512 Mb.
If you like games, get Geforce 2 or better.

i agree with the amd and memory suggestion.... The hard drive should be in the least 40 gigs but probably more. always get a custom system..... but i think it all depends on what you need it for. i would run a dual boot system so i would want two big hds. it just really depends... what os are you going to run?
