AMD 64 FX55 is the best CPU.
Most like the Asus A8V motherboard.

I'm going with the Asus motherboard and a 64 3000+ and overclock
it to 53 speeds myself. ;)
The AMD 64 is by far the fastest gaming CPU on the planet.

Definitely FX55 for CPU. Best motherboard would be the A8V or the K8N Neo2. The Neo2 is supposed to be the best overclocker right now.

As far as RAM goes... People seem to like OCZ, Crucial Ballistix, and that new GSkill stuff.

the PQI memory isn't doing half bad either -- right up there with gskill.

I'll let you be the judge of that: http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2128

FX55 is the best, though I'd go with a slower, cheaper chip and overclock it. Personally, I'd go with the 3200+ for the 10x multiplier for 250x10. Make sure you get good RAM too - the OCZ PC3200EL Platinum Revision 2 is probably the best RAM you can buy right now.

PC3700EL Rev2 isn't to bad either. Just speed binned 3200EL Rev2.
