the best CPU is of course: the i7-980 with its 3.33 GHz Hex-core (6-cores). it is currently the fastest cpu there is but can be a bit costly.

for video cards, I'd suggest a GTX 480 3-way SLI ( you get 3 of them)
however, these are just the best of the best setups, and it might burn a hole in your wallet

if you are an experienced user, you can try overclocking those for maximum power
