[GRASSLIST:3171] advice on building a workstation PC for Grass

I'd appreciate any advice on building a new PC, with running Grass in 
mind.  I am currently using
AMD Duron Processor
cpu MHz         : 1294.521
RAM : 750 MB
Linux 2.4.20-28.8
The ram seems to be fine, but the CPU frequently max's out on things 
such as v.in.shape, r.patch, etc.
I'd like to stay under $600 for motherboard, CPU, RAM, harddrive, and 
case.  I know I am being quite vague about what sort of data I'm working 
with, but I'm sure that people must have opinions about what a dedicated 
Grass workstation would have in it.
