Default Fantasy gaming rig.

I see people asking for help putting together a gaming system with a set cost.
How about if money was no issue? But not just putting together the most expensive piece of hardware on your desk, It would have to make sense.

The poll is just for the CPU. I'm curious as to how many people go with AMD vs Intel
what would you do?

Asus M4A88T-M/USB3<>PhenomII X4 965e<>Asus ENGTX460
Seagate 320GB/1TB<>Win7 Ulti 64Bit<>Antec900
SyncMaster 2220WM<>HyperX 16gb<>Cooler Master 600W

With an unlimited budget, I'd probably go with four of the 12-core Magny-cours opterons. So AMD I guess. Intel's X5000s seem to be pretty awesome too though.
