Default New PC, looking for a direction!

I have not upgraded my PC in what seems like ages (did not have the need and stopped gaming for awhile). Time to start from scratch and build a new system. I have been out of the new hardware loop for awhile, I am really just looking to see what you all think is the best of the best out right now! Intel or AMD (which socket types)? nVidia or ATi? Are SSD Hard Drives finally worth the $$$? Best memory these days for OC'ing? So many questions! I feel like im starting all over on PC knowledge again as I have been out of gaming for so long.

I am looking to get back into high end gaming and it should be noted I will OC the crap out of anything I have! I used to generally get 1 series under the best thing out to save money. So if you help me find the best, I can go under from there. Id go so far as to point me in the right director for the best HSF assemblies currently around.

Care to help an old school gamer out? Thanks!
