It would really help if we knew what your budget was... but my reccomendation would be...

3700+ San Diego + Big Typhoon/Artic Silver 5
Asus A8N-SLi Premium
eVGA GeForce 7900GT
2 * 160GB Western Digital SATAs (the kind with 16mb cache)
Sunbeam NUUO 550W
Thermaltake Matrix/Lian Li PC-7b Plus II

For a Gaming Machine AMD is the way to go at the moment.

For a HDD i would get an Western Digital as they are a good make that dont break in 5 mins

If you want to spend that much, your current PC will be pretty much the same performance wise as a $500 PC.
