I'd look at this years Linux Journal Ultimate Linux box, here are the specs
from www.pogolinux.com:

Motherboard/chassis: Celestica A8440 (AMD-8131 Chipset) 
Memory: 16x PC2700 2048MB ECC REG (32GB) 
Network interfaces: BCM5704 10/100/1000 x 2 
RAID: Adaptec ASR2200S 
Storage: Seagate ST336607LC 36GB U320 SCSI HDD x 4 
Video: Appian Rushmore Quad-DVI PCI 
Audio: Creative Labs SB Audigy 
Power Supply: 500W Hotswap x 3 
Miscellaneous: PC Floppy drive, IDE DVD-ROM, USB 
I'm guessing this machine would run either windows or linux, and being a
quad processor AMD64 it's probably got plenty of cycles.
