I'm about to purchase a new computer and good performance with Mathematica 6.0 is my main priority. Can anyone prioritize which hardware components (dual-core, quad-core, graphics cards, etc) are likely to give the most "bang for the buck" when it comes to dynamic graphics, number crunching, symbolic computation, etc ? I can spend up to about $4000. I was planning on using Windows XP.
