not going to bother sorting through the 10+ pages. if you have money to burn then get the FX-60 for the unlocked multiplier. personally i would get a Opteron 180 instead or an X2.
Seasonic 600w PSU or some other reputable brand.
i can't recommend a good crossfire motherboard since i'm not famaliar with any. the only reason i would recommend going the ATI route is because the x1900 based cards are arguably the fastest currently in the market. if not, get a pair of 7800GTX cards and run them off one of those DFI boards people are talking about or an Asus A8N32-SLI.
as for RAM, read up on this
for some ideas.
