Here's the system I'm working on to replace HP Pavilion xt953. I hope it can do Wii emulation at 1080p at a good framerate. All that's left to get is the CPU, the OS, and a few cables.

All the parts I bought off of NewEgg. Never had much reason to use anything else.

Case = Chieftec Bravo BA-01B-B-B Full ATX Tower
Power = 650W Corsair
Mobo = Asus P6T Deluxe V2
CPU = Intel i7 Nehalem 920
RAM = 6GB DDR3 Corsair
Graphics = BFG Tech GeForce GTX 280 - 1GB GDDR3 PCI-E 2.0 X16
Sound = HT Omega Striker 7.1
Monitor = Asus VH226H 21.5" HDMI 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor
Hard Drives = (2X) Samsung 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache (Set to Raid 0)
Disc Drive = LG Blu-Ray/HD-DVD reader and DVD-R/RW burner
Multimedia Card Reader = Nippon Labs All-In-One USB +eSATA
OS = Windows 7 RC, Mobo also came with an onboard SSD with ExpressGate/SplashTop on it, a very basic form of Linux.

Nicely planned but one area I would mess with would be a different monitor. You got this powerhouse pc and you have a 21.5 inch monitor. With a system like that I would go with this 27.5 inch instead just to be able to see all that power in action.
