Choosing hardware for a custom computer

Advancing software has gradually brought my 2004 Dell D600 laptop to a standstill, and this year the laptop has been hindering me from learning and experimenting with new technology at home. And my circa 2000 Pentium III 733 under the desk is relegated to file storage, and way overdue for being donated to a rural school.

The Time Has Come for a new machine! But not an off the shelf rip-off: I have a specific philosophy about what goes into a good computer.
