-If you want make more detailed model then you need more Ram . (The best is 24 GB )

-If you want render your images more faster , than you need better processor Around 3.2 Ghz/Core with 4 Core , but 8 core is better .And of course 64 bit .

-If you want faster viewport , you need better graphic card with more vRam . So with 2GB vRam , and you should use crossfire .

I hope that informations is useful . But I can send for you more precisely if you want .

I actually had the same dilemma about a week ago with which processor to go with, knowing that there are a lot of good ones in the market. Of course, if you want to stay safe, I would suggest that you get an intel core i7. I think there were 3 on that line with not much difference to boot. I got the 2600S and it has 4 cores with a maximum of 8 threads. Clocked at 2.8ghz, it can go as fast as 3.8 with the turbo boost.

RAM - you tamke as many as possible.
Processor - you tak as powerful as possible.
Graphic card... Here I have a dilema because I heard that some new graphic cards may cause viewport working worse than older ones.
