What would you build?

I'm looking at building a new system to ask as a storage server, photo editing and i will also use it for FaH.

So with regards to storage and photo editing in CS4 that's easy, but for FaH what would you build?

Budget £500-£600.

CPU:
Motherboard:
Memory:
GPU:

For FaH, I'd spend £500 on the CPU and £100 on the rest, but I appreciate that's not realistic!

FaH is heavily CPU-biased. What you do with the rest depends on what you want.

I looked at the Intel i920 and a compatible motherboard which cost £350, the AMD Phenom as in the link above and motherboard costs about £230 so it's £120 cheaper and from looking at various benchmarks and worst case scenario it's only 20% slower.
