However, it's easier to put a list together if you have a bit more information.

What games do you intend to play - and at what resolutions and details?

What kind of rendering are you planning to use it for?

Do you need peripherals, monitor(s) or OS?

Are you interested in overclocking?

Does appearance matter? Or noise levels?

With that kind of information, it would be easier to tailor the list to your needs.
